Does the Vita work as a Play Link Device?

7 posts in this topic

Sorry if this has already been addressed, but I haven't been able to find a definitive answer anywhere.

 

If you own a game on PS4 which has Play Link and requires a mobile phone / tablet to play multiplayer, can a Vita be used as a device?

The Vita doesn't offer the apps required for Play Link unlike mobile devices and tablets. It would have been wise for them to add it but they didn't.

The Vita doesn't support any of the Play Link games, thus is useless as a controller for them. The smart thing to do would have been to add some kind of support for them but Sony couldn't be bothered, thus you will need either a Mobile Phone or a Tablet if you want to play any of these games.

Thanks both, was afraid that may be the case.  Not really thinking of youngsters who may not have mobiles or tablets yet.  Never mind.

It would make sense, but Sony doesn’t even know the Vita exists anymore...

There’s a bunch of kids in my sons class that are 4-5 years old that all have their own mobiles. It’s cheaper to give an old phone to them than to buy a dedicated gaming device. 
 

But you’d think Sony would enable PlayLink on the Vita regardless.

Phone only as some have mentioned but you may need a rooted android or jailbroken Apple device now to use these apps. Due to some have been removed from marketplace.

 

Their still playable just if you never installed them before they were removed you will need to find an external link to then and install them manually
