    It's called portable gaming with direct remote play and via the internet. Ps4 will also launch with the Playstation app that can be downloaded on any android or apple device.

    Can you remote play with a "smartglass"? Where are the trigger buttons?

    Just had a thought, IF DS4 becomes android compatible... could one second screen the PS4 on an OUYA?

    Maybe you should read articles before making uninformed posts trying to elicit reactions?

    Fundamentally, Microsoft is at a disadvantage here. It appears that Sony is miles ahead on the game-streaming front, and it sells a device that is actually designed to play games wherever you are. Streaming games to the Vita is a no-brainer at this point, and will offer a much better experience than gaming on a tablet or smartphone. Even if Microsoft can catch up with Sony’s progress in terms of streaming tech, the available mobile hardware just can’t compare. Halo on a smartphone is a cool idea, but simply cannot compete with a real controller. Provided that Sony continues to execute on its impressive promises, the Vita might just seal the PS4‘s fate as the winner of the next generation.
    To be frank Sony's second screen functionality is ahead of Xb1s. Unless I'm mistaken and missed the part of the presser where MS revealed a powerful dedicated portable gaming device that was built with MS's the 8th gen console in mind that will be able to remotely play most next gen games...

    The Vita has a big target of becoming not only a portable console, but a companion console too.

    I thought it was a well thought out and good read. The Gaikai streaming does bump Sony a head quite a bit.

    What a piss poor article lol. So, it's comparing streaming gaming to smart glass? wtf, it's too different categories. The Smart Glass isn't for remote playing games like the Vita is. smh...

    You don't have to use a windows phone or tablet. You can use any android tablet, as well is iPad, android phone, iPhone/touch. I think eveyone on the forum here has a device that they can use Smart Glass with.

    I don't think second screen functionality beats out Microsofts options. I think that it is boss regarding streaming, remote play, etc. but def. not specifically for second screen features. That's kinda what I meant by the article being poor. It's a comparison between things that, right now, aren't even the same.

    The PS4 serves the same purpose. I believe with the android and iOS app, while playing BF4 (for example) I can get on my nexus 7 and use that as a second screen. just like Microsofts smartglass. I believe that is what you were talking about. But this is kind of old news because Sony already stated this in the conference on Feb 20th I believe.

    I don't see why anybody would, but's that's me. I'm not into the handheld stuff. The streaming stuff sounds cool though. I don't see any advantages they have until the service is actually ready, and no release date in site for Europe isn't really great news.

    I do. There are a few games that I really would like to be able to play and the other features, such as the PS4->Vita stuff, sounds really promising.

    SONY has already demoed some of these features, drawing stuff on an Xperia Z1 and flicking it into your game world.
