Its a very interesting features.  I can see why some would want to use it.  Honestly, I have yet to need that type of function, but its pretty darn cool that it can work so seamlessly.

 

Seeing Nintendo pull that functionality off with the WiiU and MS with Smartglass has shown just how far the tech as come.

I have a few questions. I've tried to finds answers to no avail.

1. When streaming a PS4 at home, is that a direct connection between the PS4 and Vita? Or does it go out on the Web and come back in and connect?

2. What's the footprint on the PS4?.. I can see some with a hefty electric bill, from losing track of time. Especially those who plan to stream while not at home.

I would love to see a $500 PS4/Vita bundle ($549.99 tops).

It has to be a local connection of some sorts for his (somewhat hilarious) claim of "zero lag".

I'm interested in the feature, but Sony really needs to make the Vita more appealing price wise. Even with the price cut of the handheld, the memory is still ridiculously expensive. (even after the "significant" price cut) Ideally, I would prefer to see Sony release a new model of the Vita that was compatible with generic SD cards. But that will never happen.

Why is it a hilarious claim?

There is no such thing as zero lag. I know what he means but still.

pfft, the PS4 is so advanced they invented time machines to create zero lag, the information literally arrives at the vita before it's sent, causing zero lag.negating any possible lag caused by video compression, transfer and decompression. 

 

well that's what I figured was going on anyway ;p

Well if you look at how the WiiU tablet works, it requires a cable connection to work.  I think they may have mentioned wanting to do it wireless at some point.

 

So it will be very interesting to see how reliable a wirelsss connection can be at streaming live gameplay from the ps4 to the Vita.  I assume part of the reason why it could work well is that the ps4 handles all the compression and that the Vita is powerful enough to decompress the stream on the fly. 

 

Either way, I want to see how this works in the real world.
