You can play PC on your TV via Steam Link. You can play a Sega Genesis game, ported to Xbox 360, via Xbox One’s backwards compatibility, and then stream that to your PC. You can play PlayStation 4 on your PS Vita.
The only problem with that last one? There aren’t very many Vita systems out in the wild, as compared to the number of PCs that assist in the other two equations. Sony is looking to take care of that problem soon, though, as the company is working on a PC and Mac solution to allow remote play of the PlayStation 4 console.
Sony Computer Entertainment boss Shuhei Yoshida confirmed this via Twitter over the Thanksgiving weekend:
While this may not be a system-selling feature, it’s currently something the Xbox One can do that the PlayStation can’t. The addition of this feature would likely come along with proper, official drivers for the PlayStation 4 DualShock 4 controller to make it more easily and widely compatible with games, giving Sony yet another wedge into the PC gaming space.
Much like with the Xbox One’s streaming, this is going to be especially good for households with shared televisions and environments where there isn’t an easily accessible display available.
There’s no word yet on when the application will be available, but we can’t wait to check it out.
