Yoshida has confirmed on Twitter that all PS4 games will indeed feature PS Vita Remote Play. Says Yoshida, "Yes, it's true unless the game requires specific hardware like the camera. It will be great to play PS4 games on PS Vita."
Shuhei Yoshida, President of Worldwide Studios at Sony Computer Entertainment, has just confirmed that the Sony PS Vita will be able to enjoy Remote Play support with future PlayStation 4 titles. This is massive news folks, especially when you take into consideration that future PS4 owners can stream just about all of their games over to the PS Vita without having to fork out additional dough to purchase an extra copy.
Sony's Xperia ZR isn't reaching the market all by its lonesome: it's accompanied by a high-end Bluetooth headset, the SBH50. The sequel to the Smart Wireless Headset Pro mostly ups the ante with NFC -- listeners just have to tap the smart remote against their Xperias (or many other NFC-aware devices) to get going. There's still the emphasis on higher-than-usual quality for wireless audio; likewise, the remote continues to preview calls and messages, play FM radio and take the owner's pick of wired headphones.
Multi-view imaging involves surrounding the objects (e.g. sports players) with a number of cameras, which can provide a virtual all-round view of them at any point of time.
App Remote is a feature that unifies car audio music and Smartphone apps into a single source list that can be safely controlled* from your car audio or Smartphone. Music information (album art etc.) is visualized on the Smartphone monitor and incoming messages are read aloud on your car audio with your Android Smartphone.
* Smartphone apps can be launched from the car audio, but the number of controllable functions are limited.
