Remote play is a joke. I play games on my tv when I'm home. I play games on my psp/DS/vita when I'm not at home in front of the tv.
How is remote play a joke?
You can play "remote play" supported games when you are not home, through Wi-Fi or 3G (on 3G Vita's).
I used this feature a few times with my PSP. But, with the Vita promising remote-play with all PS4 titles, I can imagine I will be using it more often. I only have the Wi-Fi Vita model, but it's not hard to find a Wi-Fi connection, where ever you are.
Smaller PSN and indie titles are all well and nice but frankly thats not what the Vits is about at its core. Its bringing the full AAA experience in your hands. Those have been very few and far between. Killzone looks great but thats one game. Sony needs to show a significant improvement in those higher end games or the Vita will continue to languish.
