Sony has no games to show, hides the fact with more Remote Play

With a total lack of new big games to show off, Sony keeps on banging the Remote Play drum in this new advert for the PS4 and Vita remote play pairing. I'd like to see one piece of evidence from Sony that this strategy is working, given that a finite number of PlayStation fans would own both anyway.

But, is anyone else really rushing to embrace the concept? When the PS4 price cut kicks in I might bite. Until then, the idea of spending $$$ on one box only to spend $$$ on another for a niche function seems pretty mad, especially since most Vita indies (its sole remaining strong point) are now also appearing on PS4.

A souped-up super-Vita could change that dynamic of course, but then its down to developers to reinvest on a format that has let them down already.
