Sony survey asks about PS4 Remote Play on Nintendo Switch

And our survey says…

A new Sony survey is asking PlayStation 4 owners whether they'd be keen on Remote Play on Nintendo Switch.

The appropriately-named redditor YouRedditHereFirst revealed the details of the survey, which asks a raft of questions about Remote Play, as well as images of the questions.

Remote Play lets you stream your PS4 games to a raft of devices, including a PS Vita, PC or smartphone, that are also connected to your broadband network. There's DualShock 4 wireless controller suppport, too.

The headline question is this:

"Ability to PS4 Remote Play on more devices (eg able to play on Nintendo Switch, Apple TV or Android TV)."

The user then selects how appealing they'd find that, choosing from five options.

Meanwhile, other questions posed by the survey suggest Sony is thinking about allowing Remote Play on a device that's not connected to the internet, allowing Remote Play without a PS4 connected to the internet, enabling access to PS1 and PS2 games, releasing a slim/portable DualShock controller that's easier to carry on-the-go, and letting you connect other controllers, such as an Xbox controller or mouse and keyboard.

Of course, this is just a survey, and Sony may never action anything mentioned here, let alone release the Remote Play app on Nintendo Switch. But the survey does provide us with a snapshot of Sony's thinking on the future of Remote Play, and it sounds pretty interesting.
