We have some new details on some of the features of the PS4 via Japanese Magazines.
The console will be able to stream PS4 games to the Vita at the handheld’s native resolution. Which means, a game running at 1080p on the PS4 will be compressed to Vita’s resolution and then streamed, and this is possible due to the powerful hardware inside the system.
When you transfer a movie clip from a PS4 to PC, there’s no encoding required. It won’t be in a proprietary format. The DualShock 4’s touchpad is not meant to be a priority feature like the Sixaxis on the PS3, but developers are having creative ideas on how to use it.
In a recent Killzone: Shadow Fall demonstration on Night With Jimmy Fallon, Herman Hulst revealed that the touchpad will mostly be used for navigating through menus and more.
The new stereo camera created for the PS4 will detect the user’s location even if the user does not have a DualShock 4 or Move controller. Lastly, there are chances of PS1, PS2 emulation in the future.
