Below are the details from The Z, to quote: Sony just released a new Video showcasing their new Playstation 4 firmware 1.70, and its new features.
If one pays attention to the banners in the video, one could spot that the PS Vita (TV) firmware 3.15 will be necessary to use said new PS4 connection functions, if one wants to connect their PS Vita (TV) with a Playstation 4 running firmware 1.70.
In the end of the video, Sony showcases that the PS VitaTV will finally get the ability to connect to the PS4 and use all showcased features, like presented at the PS VitaTVs release.
After updating the PS VitaTV to firmware 3.15 and the PS4 to firmware 1.70, it will be possible to use the PS VitaTV to control and use the PS4, even if the PS4 is in another room and connected to another TV. Both devices have to be in the same network, otherwise this does not work, though.
What this new firmware 3.15 offers for the regular PS Vita, and what it fixes once again, is currently not known. Stay tuned for more!
Update: The changelog for the PS Vita firmware 3.15 is not as long as the changelog for the new PS4 firmware, but it is finally something else than just 'System stability during use of some features has been improved.'
PS4 Link Update for Remote Play: Linking your PS4 and PS Vita together will now be easier with the 3.15 update for PS Vita.
It'll enable Automatic Device Registration, which will automatically detect and pair both systems when they're both online and the same user is signed in to both devices.
This makes it even quicker for you to get started on Remote Play or access other second screen features.
Up to now, we can neither confirm nor deny that the Firmware 3.15 fixes yet another private usermode exploit, like the previous new firmwares did. We will keep you informed about any new changes we can find.
