Felix Morais is hospitalized hundreds of miles away from his home in New Brunswick, but PlayStation 4's remote capabilities allow him to still play titles such as Infamous: Second Son, DualShockers reports.
Remote play allows PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 owners to play games on handhelds like the Vita. Morais, 9, suffers from digestive problems that require him to spend a lot of time in hospitals.
During one such instance, his father, Alexis, helped connect the console with the Vita. Although glitchy at first, Morais was reportedly able to play Second Son with few problems. Alexis Morais later tweeted a photo (pictured above) of his son playing the game.
During an interview with Polygon, PS4 architect Mark Cerny said remote play is part of PlayStation's DNA. Remote play requires a steady wifi connection, though it's typically not recommended for play far away from the console.
