Sony world wide studios president Shuhei Yoshida has revealed that the remote play function on the PS4 has zero lag and works really smoothly when streamed to the Vita.
He said that he played Assassin’s Creed 4 backstage and it was an identical experience on the PS4 and the Vita. He also revealed that developers have to concentrate on providing a proper control layout for the Vita because the system has less buttons, other than that “it simply works”.
The system software is also not complete yet, according to him.
“It’s just a matter of us finishing the system software,” he told IGN. “As demonstrated by the Assassin’s Creed team [at Gamescom] it’s really working.”
The PS Vita has touch controls as well and in a way it nullifies the fact that it has fewer buttons than the DualShock 4. It’s up to the game developers to provide a layout that works well.
The remote play works at Vita’s native resolution and is downscaled by the PS4.
