    So i have 1 ps4 dualshock controller and psvita. I wanted the vita to be a second controller on the ps4. I want to use it as a bluetooth controller is that possible? Or is it only wifi? I know about remote play but my internet connection isnt that good.

    You don't need to use wifi for remote play when your at a short distance. You can enable a setting in the ps4 that it first uses a local connection, for remote play. I tried this last weekend, and worked perfectly, even with wifi disconnected on both the ps4 and Vita. You can't use it as a bluetooth contrller though, which is a shame. You'll also need a second account on the ps4 for the dualshock 4 controller (a guest account works fine)

    That won't work, I'm afraid. At least, not from what I've experienced/read myself. Using remote play is the only way for someone else to control the PS4 with a Vita. It might be coming in a future update, but who knows..
