An unofficial app popped up online this week that mimicked the Remote Play functionality with that the PS4 shares with the PlayStation Vita. The downside there was, unlike most things online, it wasn’t free — but that was a small price to pay when you considered the potential.
But it wasn’t as exciting as thinking about the prospect of something with official backing. And now, that’s precisely what the internet has received.
In a tweet this afternoon, Sony Worldwide Studios president and one of the long-serving faces of the PlayStation brand Shuhei Yoshida has announced that the company is working on an official app that would bring the PS Vita’s Remote Play functionality to the PC and Mac platforms.
Some people asked if we plan to provide Remote Play function to PC, and yes, we are indeed working on an official application for PC/Mac. 😀

The Sony executive hasn’t announced anything further about the expansion of Remote Play, but it’s likely that if any information is forthcoming we will probably hear about it during the PlayStation Experience next weekend.
