PS4 Remote Play with a Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact (Shadow of Mordor etc)

Does the Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact support PS4 Remote Play?

Here's my thinking. I was going to play Shadow of Mordor, the PS4 game, on my PS Vita, while half-watching something on TV. But the mapping for the controls is reportedly terrible. Some games like Destiny are tailored for Remote Play, but Shadow of Mordor - not so much. You have to use the rear touch panels for aiming arrows for example.

So I was thinking it'd be good if I could use Remote Play with the Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact, but using the PS4 controller for the full experience? Is this an impossible dream?! :D

Okay, so this is from the Z3 Compact Tablet's description:

PS4™ Remote Play - leave the sofa behind.Dont let your console dictate where you game. With PS Remote Play you can seamlessly switch from your PS4 console to your smartphone or tablet - and take your gaming to another room. Just connect your Xperia™ device to your Wi-Fi® and play games using the DUALSCHOCK®4 controller. Pick up the battle where you left off, or start a new one away from your console.

Isn't that all you're after?

For better help with this you need to rephrase your question by adding "...while juggling 3 kittens on crack" :p

No, seriously, I need to look into this. Seems outlandish. I'll get back to you when I'm on a better connection...

Thanks! Seems like it'd be a great selling point for a tablet!

So... I done some thinking... PS4. Vitae. TV Set... and now a Z3 Tablet?
For the price of the Z3 compact tab you can buy a small telly and a Nexus tab. Play your game on the PS4 & Big TV... Watch that culture programme on the small TV.

Anyhoo.

Come to think of it: what you describe, isn't that pretty much what Remote Play is about?
As you can probably tell: I'm not big gamer :p

They've released an update for the Z2 that enables this too, I'm assuming that their prices will be dropping now the Z3's out?

Probably. Sony devices usually go down in price fast... at least here in Ireland.
