    The PlayStation Vita was meant to be the king of Remote Play for PlayStation, but things never really turned out the way they hoped, with the Vita being known more for its miserable sales and its status as a "legacy system" a handful of years after its launch. We could get another chance at experiencing Remote Play on a handheld, though, if a recent PlayStation survey has anything to say about it. Reportedly, a Reddit user found a survey being given out by Sony, which asked PlayStation fans what features they'd like to see in the future, regarding Remote Play. Some of these questions asked if being able to play classic PS1 and PS2 titles through remote play would be appealing, if a mini DualShock 4 meant for on-the-go playing would be of interest, or if people would want to use Remote Play on other entertainment devices, such as the Apple TV, Android TV, or even the Nintendo Switch. Whether or not we see Sony actually implement any of these ideas is dubious, but it does seem like they're looking towards the future when it comes to PlayStation 4's Remote Play, or the service in general.

    Playing something like Spider-Man on the Switch would feel unreal, I would definitely like to see it happen, but I doubt I would use it much.

    Nintendo is doing this kind of thing with PC games and Switch ports of PC games...
    Why wouldn't they do it with the Xbox or PS?

    Seems like... it's going to be real.

    More PS2 for me, but HELL YES. The good Ratchet & Clank games, Persona 3 FES, and more I can't think of right now.

    As in something like a JoyCon? No thank you; too tiny and cramped. The current DS4 is perfect; not sure how they're going to improve upon it for the PS5 and DualShock 5.

    Out of those devices, I only own a Switch, and I don't tend to play games outside of the house, so...eh.

    Noone is copying anyone - what Nintendo did with the hybrid idea you dont need a big arse brain to come up with tht-it's not like portable is as good as docked-I couldn't giv a cows arse if anyone is copying-mor ways of playing for us all tht matters

    Except Nintendo. Yeah, PS4 remote play may increase Switch console sales (which they sell at a huge loss) but it will decrease software sales (which is where the profit is). Why would someone who's interested in PS4 remote play pay $60 for a Switch port like Witcher 3 when they can pay $15 for the PS4 version? While the PS4 remote video compression will take a toll it probably wouldn't be as bad as the downgrade in graphics that the native Switch version needed to do. This applies for a lot of other games too, like Skyrim, DOOM, and of the Final Fantasy's Crash and Spyro trilogies and it could even decrease potential future ports for games like Kingdom Hearts 3 or Spider-Man.

    Sony certainly wins as PS4 remote play on Switch can revitalize lost gamers who have been too busy to sit in front of the TV for some solid gaming but who can now play in short bursts on the Switch. I know I'd play a few PS4 games I have that I haven't actually finished if I could play them on the Switch.

    @AnalogMan This wouldn't be a free lunch for Sony or users, my boy. Of course you would have to pay:
    For Switch online.
    Sony's service

    Now, considering that both companies are rivals on the same field, it would be majorly difficult to pull off, but weirder things happened before.

    Since it doesn't use Nintendo's servers and can be played over local network, no Nintendo online would be required. As for Sony's service, they don't currently require service for any of their other Remote Play offerings (PC, Mac, iOS, Android, Vita). So this likely would be free lunch.

    Ok, so Sony goes from blocking Fortnite console crossplay on the Switch to straight up giving people the ability to play PlayStation games on the Switch.

    What a weird realm we live in.
