PS4 Update Adds Remote Play For iOS
Posted: Posted March 7th by Q

he latest PlayStation 4 system software update is available now, and it adds a pretty cool feature: iOS users can now use their iPhones or iPads to play PS4 games using Remote Play.

Version 6.50 is a mandatory 442 MB download. It enables Remote Play for iOS devices, though you'll also need to download the PS4 Remote Play app from the Apple App Store. The app itself is compatible with the vast majority of PS4 games, with virtual buttons and sticks appearing on the iOS device screen, though you may find a bluetooth gamepad allows greater control.

Elsewhere the 6.50 update, which was previously available in beta, introduces the ability to remap the X and circle buttons for some territories, but otherwise the patch changes very little.

Remote Play was a much-vaunted feature of the PS4 when it launched in 2013 with the PS Vita already available. Since then, the feature--which theoretically allows you to play your PS4 games on the other side of the world from your console--has been expanded to Sony Xperia phones and, more recently, PC and Mac.

Anyone planning on trying this out?

tbh I rather do remote play on another device + ps4 controller than on just the vita it's self.

and having a choppy connection literally sounds like a personal problem. I would imagine that with high speed internet you would have very little/ no issues.

I think the witch has proven that a lot of us enjoy the idea of being able to play home console games on the move or just not on our TV.

I can't really imagine a situation where I would want to do this on a phone, but the infrastructure was already there for them so I done imagine it was much of an investment to create the iOS app.

So eh?

Wish i had a ps4 so I could play dragon warrior 7 on the go, this game is like the war and peace of video games. I started I middle of last year and still haven’t finished it

The baloch clock tower

No I haven’t tread war and leave but I know it’s a long book

I only cleared 230 pages before giving up on it. It is an interesting book at times but it is dry long and boring for the most part.

Pierre Gang Gang though.

W&P def has that reputation; if memory serves it used to be a punchline in Bugs Bunny cartoons and such when they wanted to show a huge book

and yeah 7 is a notoriously long game (especially given that the nature of it basically requires visiting the "same" location more than once)
