Beyond: Two Souls for the PlayStation 3 can be played via a touch screen iOS or Android device, such as the iPad, Sony has revealed at gamescom.

A free app for touch screen devices will be released, allowing the tablet to connect to the PS3 via WiFi. The game will switch to easy and feature a very simple touch-to-move control system.

Quantic Dream's David Cage also revealed that a co-op Duo mode will be included, allowing a second player to use a control pad to play as Aiden, with players using his powers to solve puzzles. Any combination of touch screen devices or controllers can be used to play Duo Mode.

The new touch screen control mode was designed for people who weren't "born with a Dualshock in their hands".

The issue is latency. The Wii U solves this by broadcasting its own wi-fi open only to the gamepad, but that network has terrible range.
The PS3 does not have this technology, plus the software doesn't properly support it, so remote play doesn't properly work there. I'm intrigued to see if they made it work on the PS4/Vita combo, and if so, how.
SmartGlass (and presumably also this) is way too slow to use in fast paced games such as Rayman Legends, but I can see it work in a David Cage movie.

They announced the support the same time as Smart Glass, anyway, so the only big surprise is how long its taken for a game to use it. I guess they were focusing more on the Vita and PSP in the past using them in a similar way on previous games.

Of course, Apple TV sort of had it first ;)

I don't think I'll use it, though, as I haven't really utilised Smart Glass either. Both have had similar technology for films for ages, too.

I do like remote play, though. More useful to me than trying to read a map and look at a TV at the same time. Only Wii au seems to have got this right so far and even then, not all the time.
