Skyrim on PS Vita equals Holiday season dominance
Those who have not invested in the PS Vita yet may think again if their favorite games like Skyrim could be played via RemotePlay, and we can imagine what effect this would have on the sales figures of the handheld. With this support, the Vita is bound to get more attention as interest in this portable console is already starting to gather momentum.
It was only a few days ago that we saw footage of Left 4 Dead being run on the Vita, through Remote Play and now there is a video from Youtuber, EyePatchCars, showing footage of Skyrim being played. At the moment, it looks a bit rough as far as the controls are concerned but OnlySp.com mention that this should be improved and adapted giving consumers another reason to pick up a PS Vita this holiday.
Hoping that this will be considered and advertised, you could see this becoming a force to be reckoned with during the Holiday season, and when you take into account the power of the Vita many gamers will feel that there is no reason for this not to be pushed. News of Skyrim being played on the Vita via RemotePlay is also documented on The Verge, and although it is not known when this function will be available to the public, the video shows great potential. Sony has shown off the PS Vita running PlayStation 3 games via the Vita’s RemotePlay before, but no confirmation has come about when we can experience this.
Some gamers feel that the Remote Play capabilities were one of the main reasons for their initial purchase of the Vita, so they are concerned that Sony has gone quiet about this since E3. There is an expectation that more on this feature will be revealed before the end of the year. With the topic of potential still in mind we thought this would be a good opportunity to refer back to last weeks post on PS Vita games.
In this we spoke about more quality games that would entice further sales of the handheld and in this we mentioned a few that we feel would be machine sellers along with some upcoming titles that are expected to make an impact. Can you see RemotePlay support for games like Skyrim assisting the sales figures of the PS Vita?
