How does WiiU remote play perform when you're not at home?


I should not be giving an answer to this, but here it goes: it does not, but then you did not have to pay the additional 150 bucks (I myself spent those on games - who woulda thunk it?) for questionable results.

I think his point is there is added value to the Vita as a handheld over the WiiU's gamepad. The gamepad damn sure better work well as that is one of its main functions besides being the actual controller for the WiiU.

The vita on the other hand is a dedicated handheld first then a remote play client. Granted, it's a bummer that the remote play functionality is still gimped by some issues (which could very likely be fixed with some software/firmware updates as the technology matures) but it does work and adds value to an already kick ass handheld product.

 


Plus the Vita can actually do remote play from anywhere.

It can do it, but not well.  That's kinda the point here.

It is very much playable, are plenty of vids on youtube showing it.  The WiiU performs better on a technical level, but this idea on VIta it is anything less than playable to a more than acceptable standard is outright stupid.

Weren't you one of the people who were up in arms because the Wii U doesn't have an ethernet port?



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

I'm talking about single player or co-op.  Wireless competitive gaming should be banned.  Up in arms is a massive exaggeration.

No, it's not.  Sony staff themselves have stated that it's not ideal for some games, especailly ones that require quick reactions.  I can guarentee you if you are trying to play a platformer or shooter from your PS4 to PSV while in another city it will be less than what I would call an acceptable standard.  To suggest anything else is outright stupid.  But maybe your standards are low.

Another city is a stupid example.  Who is regularly that far from home?

Too bad Wii U barely has any games to use the feature.

It's not a stupid example when you said:

I didn't realise when you said anywhere that you didn't mean anywhere.
