Is this true.

Does the psvita basically act as a controller with a screen within very close range of the ps4 and television?

It's true. The vita can connect directly to the ps4 even if they aren't connected to any other network. It is the fastest connection possible for remote play.

Yes, it's true. In fact, I intend to use my Vita as a backup second controller when I'm charging the normal one.

Coool! So the full ps4 picture comes up on your vita within range of the system??

How do they do it without an internet connection?

How far do you have to be for wifi to activate??

Seems to just use the wi-fi for both systems, I believe. Directly instead of across a network.

If you're local and have it enabled, it'll always go for the direct connection first. The ps4 broadcasts a wireless signal the vita will connect too. The range depends on several factors but in the same room, you should have no issue playing it. It will mirror what's on the tv on the vita and you can even play with the tv off from streaming straight to the vita. A second player could then use the dualshock 4 and play on the tv with you.

The same way people connect to each other in person. The systems both have wireless capabilities. <_<

The PSP was able to do it with the PS3, too. Though not as well and only with PS1 games.

Oh man thats so sick. Wow thanks for the help man. I was really nervous cuz my internet is fast but not super fast so i was hoping this direct connect thing was true.

Now i really cant wait to get me a PS4!

Do you know if 15 to 20 ft is still within that direct connection range? I ask because thats how far my bathrooom will be from my ps4. Hahahaha

Not so, there was at least a dozen ps3 games that utilised remoteplay on the PSP/vita. Some good ones too :] Pitty no other devs made use of it though.
