One of the coolest things about owning a PlayStation Vita is the ability to link it to your PS4 and play your PS4 games remotely. And now, with the latest firmware patch in Japan, the Vita isn't the only system you can remote play PS4 games on; you can stream to the Vita TV as well.

The Asia-only Vita TV is basically a small console that, along with the PS3/PS4 controller, allows you to play Vita games on your HD TV. Now with the PS4 link, it allows you to wirelessly connect to your PS4 through your home network and play remotely your PS4 games on any TV.

THis is the issue i have had with remote play, and as someone who has owned a WIIu and sold it to buy the PS4 because i really wanted to play my games on my vita, it is super disappointing… i have had both of my units right beside each other, right beside the router, and i have yet to acquire any connection that dosent have this same amount of lag, and its no worse or better depending on where you put you machine or router, you still get that millisecond lag…. now as he mentioned, during slower games, this isn't REALLY an issue, but maybe because i have played around with the competition (wiiu), and know just how much better it works, I'm really disappointed that sony didn't make the PS4 and vita talk directly to each other, as opposed to bottle necking it though you network…. this will always be an issue until sony make the ps4 and vita talk directly to each other, the way the wiiu connects directly to the gamepad,
