The ability to take a game with you rather than halt it while you leave is one of the most appealing new features of the PlayStation 4. You could be in the middle of fighting dragons or scoring goals when the need to leave the house arises – just about every gamer has experienced this at some point in their lives. With Remote Play, your Vita takes the game with you. No need to stop playing, right?
Not so fast. There are limitations. There are exceptions. There’s also a distinct need to be on WiFi and not mobile networks, which kills the dreams of gamers who thought they could keep playing while the walk to school.
One of the PlayStation 4’s coolest announced features is Remote Play, the service that will allow you to use WiFi to mirror and play PS4 games on your Vita. Today, Sony revealed some specifics about how that Remote Play will workâand they caution that it might not work so well when your Vita is on a different WiFi network than your PS4.
