Sony’s next major update to its PS4 system is upon us, and it will provide players with a host of new features, one of which is particularly exciting.
While there are a litter of social abilities coming to the PS4, such as the option to appear offline, notifications when friends come online, and a platform for scheduling gaming events – the remote play feature comes as a stand-out win for Playstation players.
Remote play was a feature previously reserved for the handheld PS Vita console. However as of tomorrow, players will be able to continue their adventures when the TV is taken from PC or Mac. Available for Windows 8.1 up to Windows 10 or later, and Mac OS X 10.10 onwards, users are also able to select from resolution options offering 360p to 720p (with the default set at 540p), and between a standard 30fps or 60fps. Remote play will the use the Dual Shock 4 controller, tethered to the computer via a USB cable.
To run remote play on PC or Mac, users will need to download and install the Remote Play Installer here, after the update has launched tomorrow.
