    Remote Play is a really neat feature in most cases. Most people Primarily game on their Wii U game pad, a basic remote play experience, and a lot of people love to stream the content on their PS4 to their Playstation Vita, which was previously the only device you COULD stream to. Until now that is!

    :arrow:Source

    The Aforementioned Smartphones will be releasing sometime this November. Sony has also announced the new Xperia Compact Tablet, which will also support Playstation streaming.
    While buying a new phone or tablet just to stream does sound far-fetched, hope can be held onto that soon other smart devices will be enabled to stream PS4 content.

    Looks like I need to sell my Xperia Z1 Compact and get a Z3 compact.

    So now you can experience the full potential of PS4 games on a miniature screen with touchscreen-based controls, provided I go with a sony brand of phone? Erm...I think I'll pass.
    (I'd be interested if the xperia play was supported, but I guess that would be too easy. Besides...I've lost that phone :( ).


    It would make sense on a tablet because that has a reasonable to big screen and usually a stand as well. As such, you can use it as a backup television in case your main one is taken. But on phones it really looks like technology for technology sake.

    The whole point is to use the DS4, not touchscreen controls. ;) If you have a PS4 to stream with, you already have a controller too. ;)

    I wonder if Remote Play on those smartphones will retain the 30 FPS limit.

    I forgot
    No idea what gave you that idea, I haven't had a single issue with Remote Play...ever. :rolleyes:

    This is interesting news. Since the phone/tablet will be running Android, we might be able to get PS4 Remote Play working on non-Xperia devices as well, similar to the Limelight app for NVidia Shield Streaming on non-Shield devices.

    Wish they would make a Xperia Play 2 with PS4 Remote Play instead! :O Loved my old Xperia Play, but had to upgrade to S3 since it got so slow and outdated compared to new phones. :(

    Great! Now they have even less reasons to buy a Vita.

    It's maybe bad on PS3 but most certainly not PS4.

    Seeing as the latest smartphones are more powerful than Vita and have way faster modems... 30FPS is probably a breeze.
