It seems like some PS4 games allow remote play multiplayer matches with PS4 and Vita active at the same time, giving each player his/her own view. A pretty cool feature previously exclusive to the Wii U!

I guess I picked the perfect time to buy a Vita ;)

So I'm guessing they're signed onto separate accounts, then? Last time I checked, NFS didn't have local multiplayer.

Cool. I figured that - initially at least - you'd only be able to do this with single-screen co-op or multiplayer, ala Knack. So this is good.

What I want to know is, can I bring my Vita to a friends house and remote play on his console but logged into my PSN account on the Vita.

News to me! I thought remote play was just like mirroring in Windows. Definitely getting a Vita now.

I was under the impression that there wasn't local co-op for NFS:Rivals. Is this just 2 different accounts/ps4s with one being on remote play?

If they snuck in local coop, I will purchase.

Wow knew this was available for Knack but thought this specific Remote Play use case would only be utilized in 1P offerings.

Good to see a 3rd party offer couch co-op Remote Play

Damn all the possible uses for remote play are starting to confuse me. Sony stop giving us so many use cases!!!

Let's not forget Vita TV. 2 TV multiplayer.

As many games need to support this as possible (possibly even 3 or 4 screens!!!).

This is cool, I hope split-screen shooters such as CoD will implement this feature in the future. (It's in the Wii U version.)

Holy crap I just thought of something...

Since I can't pick up my PS4 until Friday morning at 8am... And I need to work that day... I'm going to get it, set it up and enable remote play -- head to work with my PSVita, and play with the PS4 from work!!!

Man its going to be SO awesome!!!

Think I'll put Knack in the drive before I leave too! =D

Speaking purely for myself here, this is a WAY bigger deal than remote play. I hope a lot of games take advantage of this.

wait what? this can't be right, can it? this would mean PS4 is rendering the game twice and sending out a video output to 2 devices.

I wonder what the resolution would be in the main TV in this case. Half of regular resolution, so for NFS, it'd be about 720p?

It's probably splitting the res - which is fine, it does that anyway for split screen.

Although I guess it can do it smartly when a Vita is being used, giving less res to the Vita stream.

I'm super excited to try out remote play on Friday. Interested to see how well it works through my access points from PS4 (basement) to bedroom (second flloor). My master bedroom being where I prefer to poop is just ask important as playing before bed.

Wait? PS4 is rendering 2 separate fullscreens of gameplay for local coop?

Sony never mentioned that before. They only mentioned pure mirroring. Greggy needs to reconfirm this.

Since Remote Play has its own dedicated resources I don't think there will be a downgrade on the TV?

Game by game basis.

Looks amazing. Was skeptical but as I see more and more stuff about this feature it just makes me want to go buy a Vita.

Just had a thought. What if in a future software update you could use an app alongside remote play so someone could remote play on Vita and another person can watch Netflix on PS4. That would be an amazing feature and co-op play makes me think that this would be a possibility no?

So with VitaTV, does this become basically the same as system link, but only one PS4 needed?

Why December? That seems strange.

Stock problems.

Pre-ordered the game minutes after the deal went up yesterday but my copy still won't come til December (along with NBA 2K14). Debating whether or not I should go for Assassin's Creed instead for the week.

That being said, has there been an interesting coverage of this game lately/E3?

I think he misunderstood the "just like the WiiU" part.

I don't think it can render two different screens.

Not at all. If he has great upload at home and great download at work then it should be fine.
