Watch us play a PlayStation 4 game on an Xperia Z3 Tablet device (Remote Play demo)

26

The new Z3 devices that got announced on September 3 are shaping up to be one of the best in their respective classes, but the overall positive impression from Sony's unveiling has been further solidified thanks to the introduction of some new fancy features for said Z3 devices, one of which is Remote Play for PlayStation.

So, what Remote Play does for PlayStation 4 and Xperia Z3 series device owners is that it allows them to stream games running on the console right to the screen of their mobile device. Sounds cool, right? This way, you can let other family members enjoy a show or some other program on the TV, while you're still experiencing the goodness of your gaming console, courtesy of your phone or tablet's screen. However, one thing to keep in mind is that Remote Play only works when your console and Z3 device are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.

Unfortunately, the feature will be exclusive to the Xperia Z3, Z3 Compact, and Z3 Tablet Compact, but since these don't really outclass the hardware of the Xperia Z2 (or even Z1), we do hope that Sony will update its "older" phones with Remote Play at some point. Until then, why don't you hit the Play button below and see what the buzz is all about?
