This month Sony unveiled its Xperia Z3 line of mobile devices. To make these devices enticing, Sony promised that the three devices – the Z3, the Z3 Compact phone and the Z3 Tablet Compact – will be the only mobile devices to support PS4 Remote Play, the same system that allows PS Vita to stream games from the PS4.
