Sony’s big PlayStation 4 announcement was today, but perhaps the biggest highlight was the fact that Sony is not incorporating the PlayStation Vita into the ecosystem. Remote play has existed since the days of the PSP, but utilizing the technology produced by Gaikai, Sony is poised to offer true remote play on all of their titles, not just those that support it. This means that the PlayStation Vita will essentially fulfill the same role as the Wii U GamePad, for the PlayStation 4.
It’s interesting to see one of Nintendo’s competitor’s copy Nintendo so blatantly, utilizing something that has been a huge plus for having a Wii U. What do you think of remote play with the Vita? Do you own one? Will you be buying a Playstation 4? Let us know in the comments.
