Distant Play on PlayStation 4, which lets console house owners entry their PS4 from a PC or cellular system to stream video games over a wi-fi connection, is getting an improve. Now, Distant Play on PS4 may also let customers hook up with and stream video games from the PlayStation 5, Sony introduced Monday in its Final FAQ on the next-gen console.
The brand new characteristic shall be accessible later this week, when the PlayStation 5 launches within the U.S., Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and South America. (The remainder of the world will get the PS5 one week later, on Nov. 19.)
We haven’t been capable of check the PS4’s new Distant Play characteristic ourselves, however the choice would presumably permit management of PlayStation 5 video games utilizing a DualShock Four controller, one thing that isn’t supported on PS5. (As Sony notes in its FAQ, the brand new DualSense wi-fi controller just isn’t appropriate with the PlayStation 4.)
As for Distant Play on PlayStation 5, that may work in the identical means it did on PS4: Gamers will have the ability to entry their PS5 from a PC or cellular system. Distant Play on PC for PS5 video games will help the DualSense wi-fi controller through a wired USB connection.
