Fallout 4’s Remote Play controls on PS Vita are “great,” designed by the guy who helped with Destiny’s controls

If you’re looking forward to using the PlayStation 4’s Remote Play functionality with Fallout 4 this fall, developer Bethesda thinks you’ll be pleased. They chose not to stick with the default controls that come along with a standard Remote Play session. Instead, they had designer Josh Hamrick whip up some Vita-specific functionality that would suit Sony’s handheld a bit better. Hamrick was previously with Bungie from 2009 until March of 2015 when he departed to join Bethesda Softworks.

This feature is one often forgotten by developers, and while it may not convert a whole slew of players, it will definitely win points with devoted Vita owners. I’d love to see Bethesda make the Pip-Boy menu system touch operated, to start with, but there aren’t any details yet on exactly how the Vita controls will work.

We’ll find out more when the Fallout 4 releases for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on Nov. 10.
