    Playing PS4 games with PS Vita TV is a lagless, slightly compressed experience

    For me, this is great news! I was wanting to pick one of these up if/when they hit the US, which I will gladly deal with a tiny bit of compression artifacts to have a lagless experience with it!

    Sony continued to shine a spotlight on PS Vita TV during its Tokyo Game Show keynote, talking up the little device's ability to stream Vita, PS3, and PS4 games. But how they would look, and--more importantly--how they would play, was yet to be known. As soon as the show floor opened we made a beeline to Sony's booth, and after getting hands-on with the hardware we left with mixed opinions.There's definitely a visual hit when you're using the PS Vita TV to play PS4 games. We played Knack, one of the console's flagship launch titles, and though it looked good, there was definitely something a bit off. In a way, it almost looked like we were watching a YouTube video running at 1080p--it was serviceable, and looked good, but had minor tinges of compression.
    That's the (relatively minor) bad news. The good news is that it played flawlessly. During our 10-minute demo we experienced no lag whatsoever. It felt as though we were playing a game running on the hardware, not a game being streamed wirelessly to it. So while you're not getting the full-fledged next-gen experience (especially if you're playing using a PS3 controller, as we were), you're definitely getting an extremely solid experience.
    Well, so long as you live in Japan--Sony still hasn't announced plans to release PS Vita TV in the US/UK, despite using almost exclusively Americans in the promotional images and ad campaigns. Hopefully that is alleviated soon, since we're definitely excited for this interesting piece of tech.

    What Sony is setting up with its ecosystem is amazing. The PS4, Vita and Vita TV combo blows my mind--you'll really be able to take your games anywhere now. Vita TV is especially cool.

    Awesome! According to him there was no down grade in graphics.
    I'm just glad to hear there is zero lag, that's was really matters.

    You know.. Getting a VitaTV would be just about the next best thing to having a second PS4 in the bedroom.

    The surest sign that you are on the right side of a debate is when you find yourself against those who are stuck in the past because they have no future.

    Lagless is not possible so I'll poop-poop the article's title. That said, it's great that they couldn't observe the lag.

    The question still remains, how much lag is introduced.

    If this is say 40ms of lag and then on an awesome set w/ 15ms of lag -> 55ms of lag.

    To me 55ms of lag isn't noticeable. Is that what they observed? We'll never know.

    That said, my Plasma has about 50ms of lag (based on reported tests on the unit), so w/ this it would induce a total of 90ms of lag, which is in the range that I would start to notice it.

    Maybe I shouldn't worry about it as it's not likely I'll get it even if it makes it's way over to NA.

    True, unless Sony has somehow mastered quantum entanglement there will be some type of lag introduced when using remote play, but the amount of lag that appears to be there is very insignificant to the point that it is imperceptible!
