A post on the European PlayStation Blog has outed the existence of PlayStation Vita firmware v3.15 – an update which touts improved remote play pairing.
You’d be forgiven if you missed it, buried in the PlayStation 4 firmware update post they just released – however a brand new firmware version has been announced for imminent release, bringing with it improved remote play pairing.
Here’s the relevant information from the post;
“PlayStation Vita v3.15 update
PS4 Link update for Remote Play: Linking your PS4 and PS Vita together will now be easier with the 3.15 update for PS Vita. It’ll enable Automatic Device Registration, which will automatically detect and pair both systems when they’re both online and the same user is signed in to both devices. This makes it even quicker for you to get started on Remote Play or access other second screen features.”
Sounds good to me, the easier it is to use remote play the more people will want to use it – and anything that sells Vitas is something I’m behind.
Update; It’s now live, and appears to be mandatory.
