Following the latest over-the-air update, the Xperia Z2 and Z2 Tablet will be able to share in the experience. So if you don't own a PlayStation Vita or a PlayStation TV but do happen to carry around one of Sony's slightly older flagship devices, you won't be left out much longer.
If you live in a real-life version of the latest James Bond or Spider-man flicks, where absolutely every piece of electronics everywhere is made by Sony, then we've got good news: the PS4 Remote Play app is now available for download. This lets the Xperia Z3, Z3 Compact, and Z3 Tablet Compact use a PlayStation 4 controller and super-fast streaming video to play PlayStation 4 games over a home Wi-Fi network. That should make up for all the crazy supervillains swarming around your house.
Pardon me, ma'am, but you'd probably have more fun playing a racing game than watching The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
When Sony announced that the PlayStation 4's Remote Play feature would be available to Android phones and tablets in November, gamers got excited... right up to the point where they found out that the feature would be exclusive to the new Xperia Z3 line. While the Z3, Z3 Compact, and Z3 Tablet Compact look like fine machines, that isn't much consolation if you can't afford them or can't even find them in your country.
XDA-Developers poster XperiaPlaystation has made a work-around for this, at least allegedly. The developer's new port of the PlayStation app should work on any Android 4.0 or higher device with access to a custom recovery.
A few days ago, a pair of apps called RemotePlay and RemotePlayM by new Android developer Piddas21, a subsidiary of Taiwanese Quanta Computer, hit the Play Store ahead of SXSW. The idea is great - media and document sharing in real-time, across multiple platforms, such as Android, iOS, and Windows 8. Want to easily stream a video from your Nexus 4 to your iPad? No problem - it should be as simple as dragging it to a bucket with your iPad's name on it, and voila - you're watching a video on the big screen.
Note: At the time of this writing, both the iOS and Windows 8 versions were still in development, though they should be coming soon.
