Sony Salvaging PS Vita With Compulsory PS4 Remote Play Connectivity

By Gary Cutlack on at

Sony's PS4 launch event made mention of plans to expand PS3's existing Remote Play features to PS4, now new comments suggest every PS4 game will be playable on the PS Vita's display through the magic of home networks. The PS Vita might be the first gaming machine to see its street price actually rise.

The rumour was published by Eurogamer, then confirmed by Sony gaming development boss Shuhei Yoshida on his Twitter account, with the latter saying: "Yes, it's true unless the game requires specific hardware like the camera. It will be great to play PS4 games on PS Vita."

With PS Vita seemingly heading on a path to obscurity thanks to a dwindling software catalogue, it could be the shot it needs to stay relevant. As long as PS4 itself manages to capture public interest in this age of 69p micro-game domination, that is. [Eurogamer via Kotaku]
