Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima loves to brag on Twitter about his upcoming game Metal Gear Solid V and its prequel standalone game, Ground Zeroes. Now he's posted an image of the PlayStation 4 game running on a PlayStation Vita with Sony's Remote Play.
The game isn't a rendered-down version of Metal Gear but the actually game being rendered them streamed to the Vita through a “family cloud” environment of the home network.
This is not "TRANSFARRING" but remote play. By using PS4 as family cloud environment, you can play it outside.Finaly! pic.twitter.com/ofSIAU9bU7

"Transfarring" is his term for save games being transferable from PlayStation consoles to handheld devices as was avaible in some earlier version so Metal Gear.
While it's not clear why you'd want to play video game outside, it sure would be a nice distraction from that horrible judgmental sun. But maybe the recently ESRB rating for Metal Gear V: Ground Zeros with the rarely gotten “sexual violence” warning will be a nice touch at your next BBQ.
After much speculation and what was some confusion on the publisher's part, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes will be a standalone prologue chapter in the run up to Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Something like a pre-DLC.
Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is set to drop on Xbox One, 360, PlayStation 3 and next-gen PlayStation 4 on March 18.
