PS4 Remote play PC – unofficial port now lag free and all major bugs fixed, release “soon”
Developer Twisted reported today on his twitter account that his unofficial port of PS4 Remote Play for the PC has made significant progress.
All major bugs are fixed, and there’s virtually no lag in the implementation, as can be seen on a video he posted a few hours ago (see below).
The official version of PS4 Remote Play is limited to a tiny subset of Android devices: Sony XPeria smartphones and tablets. Twisted created an unofficial port of the Sony android app, and his mod enables PS4 Remote Play on most Android devices.
In parallel, Twisted has been working on a complete port of the PS4 Remote Play client for PC. The result is pretty impressive, and his latest video shows that there is virtually no latency when using his PS4 Remote play PC client:
In all practical aspects, this Remote play app for PC will be no different than the one we use for Android (showcased here running on PS4 firmware 3.xx): game compatibility is constrained by the PS4 and this is not going to change with this release. The interface will be compatible with any DirectX compatible input, according to Twisted, although he has yet to figure out a good keyboard shortcut mechanism for the touchpad equivalents.
Twisted just reported that he is down to 0 major bugs, and when asked for a release date, he replied that it would come “soon”
@frwololo soon* 😉

Valve just released the Steam link, a device to let you play your PC on your TV. Twisted is going to soon do the opposite, letting you play your TV console on your PC. How cool is that?
