In terms of power, the PS4 and the PS Vita are not in the same league. Even so Sony has found ways to make both consoles work nicely with each other. Obviously hoping that you will buy both. Here is another way the two consoles are growing closer. Soon PS Vita owners will be able to use their handheld console to view live streams of games from the PlayStation 4.
This bit of news was announced by Sony at the Tokyo Game Show. The app is called “Live from PlayStation” and will arrive for the PlayStation Vita in a future software update. Great news for anyone who wants to watch live streams from a PlayStation 4 on their handheld console. I’m guessing there are at least a few of you.
Streams from a local PlayStation 4 can be viewed, but also the Live from PlayStation app will allow Vita owners to view gameplay streams from other PS4 consoles that are streaming gameplay. So you aren’t limited to just your own PS4. It’s like Twitch, but is only for the PlayStation platform. Sony also let us know that the PS Vita will also get the ability to customize the homescreen with software update 3.3.0. Users will be able to use different themes and characters from games to customize their experience. Vita owners have a lot to look forward to.
