Sony released the android version of Remote Play not that long ago, not long after some amazing ports were made that you may not have experienced yet.

But wait, surfing around the internet Hackinformer also stumbled upon a new method of Remote Play using a Windows PC it’s still in development but looks promising.

Just recently I wanted to build a steam machine but wasn’t in my budget so I found a nice alternative that you’ll like too. Steam offers a nice GUI to in home game streaming for your PC games. Here is the tutorial in our forums to get you up and running.
I’ve not yet been able to test on these two device for PC streaming so I’m here to inform you that they do exist. NIVIDIA SHIELD is available in 3 models Portable, Tablet, Android TV all three are some of the most powerful devices on the market for android gaming. All three come equipped with NIVIDIA GRID, NIVIDIA GameStream both stream PC games while one is free the other is subscription based. I’ve personally extensively tested the NIVIDIA SHIELD’s features and this has been the best option for game streaming out of all the others in this article this also supports PPSSPP at 60fps on certain titles.
iOS doesn’t offer much that I’ve found so far, recently I came across Moonlight (available on android too) on the defying.pw repo and Git which is similar to NIVIDIA GameStream if this works for you leave a comment on your experience. Here is a link to the Moonlight site
PPSSPP has about the same experience on iPhone 6+ as the NIVIDIA SHIELD has as well as streaming games over HTTP server/ LTE.
That sums it up for me if I’ve missed anything or you’ve come across anything I haven’t mentioned feel free to comment letting us know what you’ve found so we can add it here for everyone else.
