CNET First Look
Trying out PS4 remote play on the Sony Xperia Z3vYes, a phone can double as a game accessory: snap the Xperia Z3v into a cradle that rests on top of a PS4 controller, and it streams games locally. We tried it out, and it really works.
[MUSIC] Hi, I'm Scott Stein, and I'm playing video games on the new Sony Xperia Z3v and it's actually using PS4 remote play. If you've used a PlayStation Vita and you've connected wirelessly to your PlayStation 4, that's what's going on here. And this is the first time that we've seen this technology working on a smartphone. The experience E3V is, is one og those first phones that Sony's making that will support this technology and there's also this cool bracket that will attach to a dual shock 4 controller with a suction cup and turn to this crazy little gaming system, not quite on the go this is meant to be used in the living room because you're connecting to your local network. As you can see, all of the gaming plays really smoothly on the big screen, and it works with the controller seamlessly, kind like the Play Station vitae, or a little bit like in a video shield, if you've ever used one of those, and here the game is playing just as smoothly on the TV as it is on the phone itself. It will work with all the games I play on the Play Station 4. The bracket is sold separately. And the Z3D will be available soon - - on October 23. I'm Scott Stein, and that's a look at gaming in your home on the phone, second screen PlayStation 4 remote play with the Experia Z3D.
