    They're going through with this? That's actually kind of neat.

    Still, I'm a bit shocked. I always thought the chance of such a thing happening was remote.

    I am always happy to see ideas like this happen. How it will play out with the vita screen size remains to be seen and how that might trouble devs (though we all moaned at capcom for the dead rising fonts on standard def TVs I am willing to accept that a bit more) in terms of resources used I might want to see more data on before I engage unbridled optimism. Either way but I am seeing few reasons to be negative about this.

    If this is true and it works, I will buy both systems and be a Sony fanboy. Couchless hardcore gaming is a dream come true.

    If it sucks (like the PS3 system / PSP) remote play, I'll pass.


    Since the screen is 960 x 544, it may have horizontal compression issues. It's smaller than 720p.

    This is great news even better if it works away from home over wifi.

    Mandatory? So you will be forced to buy a Vita?

    Add another point to sony's tally. They are certainly winning the next gen in my eyes already and the console isnt even out yet.

    Well, that's one way to sell Vitas.

    (In case you're not just joking, that means that developers have to include the functionality - not that you have to use it)

    Maybe. You'd have one hell of a latency problem, though. The PS3 solution allowed you to do it remotely (EDIT: offsite) via wifi, but it was slooooow.

    no, it is mandatory for the devs to put this feature avaliable, but players can use it or not. At least that's what I understood

    Shame the Vita will have DRM for it.

    A kick ass option for Vita owners, I can see myself using it all the time.

    Doesn't this sound familiar.... oh ya the PS3 and PSP did this and no one used it. I even had to enabled through hacks for all games and still didn't bother because why own a console and not play it if you are sitting within a couple feet away from it.

    Then again, the tech wasn't ready. Just like MS with tablets way before the iPad or Nokia with touch screens before the iPhone. Properly integrated and it'll be used. At least I would use it :)

    interesting. Maybe they'll make it mandatory for games to support the vita resolution as well as TV ones.

    Because you have to be sitting within a couple feet away from it to play it?

    I never used the PS3 remote play because it sucked and wasn't supported, not because I didn't like the idea.

    that way you don't have to have a Wii U for some off-tv gaming, nice move Sony, but always a step behind Nintendo, but I'm happy, I plan to buy a PS4 at launch.

    Nope, I just really misunderstood the news. Thanks for the clarification
