A few notes and tips…

  • For the best play experience — meaning the least latency — connect your PS4 to the network using an Ethernet cable. A hardwire connection will ensure the fastest and most reliable connection possible, especially when using Remote Playing via the Over The Internet option.
  • Remote Play has a limited range when using Wi-Fi. This range is undefined, but factors such as the initial signal strength, walls, and other obstacles that rest between the PS4 and the streaming device can all affect it. Signal interference from TVs and phones also plays a part, so try to keep the PS4 and the display device as close to one another as possible.
  • Games will play differently when using Vita controls opposed to a DualShock 4 controller. The Vita’s front and back screens will usually take the place of the R2 and L2 triggers, and the R3 and L3 toggles on the analog sticks, but this can differ between games. Some games, such as Destiny and Fallout 4, feature Remote Play-specific control schemes for the Vita. Be sure to double check the controls, which are usually located in the options menu for most games.
  • Although Xperia devices feature touchscreen controls by default, we recommend pairing your Xperia device with a DualShock 4 controller via Bluetooth. We also suggest that you physically attach your Xperia device with a clip-on mount.
  • For those playing on a PS TV, you’ll want to use a DualShock 4 to play rather than the DualShock 3 that was originally included with your system. The latter isn’t compatible with the PlayStation 4.
