Copycat? Remote play for consoles started with the ps4 and the vita. We have a similar thing happening with the nvidia shield handheld (PC to handheld), and tablet. No one's copying, they're all just creating the infrastructure that is a logical extension of what's already been happening with different devices exclusively. The industry is opening its doors to play anywhere models, and I think it's awesome.

Whoopty doo, here comes Sony to copycat
So only one car company can have round wheels, only one ISP can use copper wire, only one window maker can use glass and only one beer company can use hops?
Are you really that stupid?

Goes back even farther than that. The PS3 / PSP had remote play capabilities as well.

Err.. Windows10 is required? What another typical load of crap from MS... like DX10 "required" Vista in order to get PC gamers to ditch WindowsXP - we saw how well that worked!

That's pretty much okay, who really buys the Xbone anyway? The PS4 is better in every way, it has more exclusives (other than the Halo series and a few other MS titles). Sony is already shipping out the REV2 type boards which are much smaller than the original PS4 systemboard. Its cooler, its cheaper, its higher-tech, faster system in a package that is almost half the size without looking like a POS 80's VCR. So, Sony still sells the PS4 for about $50 over the Xbone and its worth every penny.

Technically PC had it first with Telnet back in 1973, and everything related to controlling a remote host is just a copy of that.
 


Actually the wheel is a several thousand years BC invention. What we know today as an axle with wheels that even had slight camber for better handling in turns like modern race cars was perfected by the Romans in their chariots.

Literally no one is asking for that.

EDIT: I replied to the wrong one. :p

I have several times, why can't we just play console games on Windows? The hardware is now so close the differentiation is feeling pretty arbitrary.

Anyway, it's always nice to have a new feature on the PS4. I might give remote play a try, why not?

i did every damn time the xbox red ringed, or had some other hardware failure, id rather play games on high end hardware so i get the best experience, but if its limited to consoles only, its either 1080p 30 at best, or sacrifices 1080p for 60fps at points.
