    PS4 Remote Play

    New to the PlayStation 4 with the latest 3.5 update, Remote play allows use of the PS4 on most Windows PC and Mac.

    Having installed it on both my Mac and my sons (under spec) laptop, I can testify that it works well. With a title like Rocket League streaming quite well with little lag.

    (Although I am yet to use it at peak traffic times on an online FPS where any drop may cause problems.)

    You can download the application here at PlayStation.

    Testing remote play right now on my PC (Wi Fi) with the PS4 upstairs (wired).

    Resolution not as good, but perfectly acceptable.
    Game Sound is fine through the PC speakers

    Just about to try an online game to see what the lag is like.

    ... some time later...

    OK so Battlefront was not too bad; got a few kills.
    A little lag now and then (could be my LAN - I've got my son here playing on a tablet, I got my work PC on, etc etc).
    It isn't so easy to spot the enemy, but still fun to play.

    I tried Witcher 3 last night (console & PC both wired) on remote play and worked 100% no lag. I've not tried multiplayer games but think I'll stick with single player games on remote play and multiplayer on the tv.

    Tried it yesterday...

    PC: Wired
    PS4: Wired
    Game played: Smite (Multi-player)

    Game played find no issues or delay.

    Had to adjust settings to 720p (Max Resolution) and High. (60fps).


    The app could use some work but other than that I didn't have any issues.

    Anyone know if this works through the internet, or do you need to be on the same network?

    Same network. I had the same question when this came out on the X1. Would have been sweet to play my X1 while on the road for work instead of shipping the damn thing everywhere.

    Here's a question: Is it possible for example, for my son to play Rocket League on the PS4, me play with him on PC and not cause it to go into split-screen mode? If so, how?

    This I can't answer.

    For the Xbox One, what's shown on the PC screen is just a mirror of what is happening on the console. It doesn't, in sense, give you "two consoles". It's like a second screen. I thought it would be cool to be able to play, say, Witcher under my profile on the PC while my daughter and her friends were playing Minecraft on the console/TV. But it doesn't work like that. Honestly the only way I see this as being really useful is if you've got a house with one main tv and that's where your console it; the family is watching television and you want to get some game time in.

    Yeah, I figured. Dare to dream, eh?
