Sony stated during the PlayStation 4 reveal that the troubled PS Vita handheld will feature prominently is the company's PS4 plans, although no concrete plans have yet been divulged. Today, Sony president Shuhei Yoshida confirmed that all PS4 games will be required to offer "Remote Play" on the PS Vita -- that is, allow for PS4 games to be played on the Vita via a live video stream. The Remote Play feature has been around for a while now, although the ability to stream games from the PlayStation 3 to the PSP or PS Vita has been severely limited. Following a report on Eurogamer, Yoshida confirmed on Twitter, "Yes, it's true unless the game requires specific hardware like the [PS4 Eye] camera. It will be great to play PS4 games on PS Vita." The news could prove a real shot in the arm for the PS Vita, as predicted sales figures for the current year aren't looking so hot.
