We’ve heard about remote play before from Sony’s PlayStation 4. The feature was fairly simple you’d be able to stream your PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 to one of your portable devices. Not to different from the Steam Machine or other similar items providing more options for console players who may not have enough screen time on the family tv or like to be more mobile around the house. It started with the PlayStation Pocket and continued onto the Playstation Vita. The next step they added PlayStation TV and now they have expanded even further says Gamespot.
They are bringing remote play fully to both PC and Mac computer systems. This means that those with a PS4 downstairs and a PC upstairs don’t have to run all the way down anymore to simply play PS4. Make sure you have a nice WiFi routers or possible even direct connection for the best results as your home router is what will be streaming all the data locally. This is an exciting opportunity for users to user their PC as the ultimate gaming hub playing anything you want. It is also good news for Twitch as you can now keep that webcam and microphone attached with the Playstation 4 you are streaming located somewhere else. Instead of needing fancy third party gear to stream your PS4 along with windows streaming features.
So for those of you who are lazy or just want to switch between PS4 and PC gaming you now have a new exciting opportunity. To take advantage of many options to play PlayStation 4 games.
