The PSP never interested me in the slightest, there wasn’t a single game which I even remotely wanted to play. Even Vita had games I wanted to play. So I never got a PSP. I did get a DS, a DSlite in 2007, and while it had some good games it’s still a good deal lower than 3DS and Gameboy for me.

Ultimately, I would love 5G and a Shared library between dedicated home and dedicated mobile devices so I can play my friends while I am on business, and they are at home with their console.

Remote Play for Steam!  As Chazore mentioned, I don't do PC or Smartphones, but I do like that this is coming to those platforms. 

On the Console side of things I have been doing this via Remote Play since PSP and PS3. I played all of Lair via Remote Play on PSP, my first big Remote Play Expereince. I use it quite often on PS Vita and PS4, it even works tethered to my flip phone over 4G. However, it is far from perfect regaurdless of the connection. 

These streaming options are a great way to allow people access from any device, but nothing beats local rendering. Having the ability to play your software on the device in your hands, with perfect response is golden. That is what makes the PSP, PS Vita, Gameboy, DS, and Switch so special. 



Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.
