    Does anyone here have experience in deploying a Unity 3D game on a PS4 unit?

    I'm wondering if there is a way to transfer the game onto a PS4, and then take it to another location to test it? Or, does it always have to be somehow connected to the PC that has the Unity running on it?

    I'm creating a 3D Architectural Visualization build, and I'd like to showcase it on a PS4 to several offices, but I don't want to lug my PC with me to all the meetings. Is it possible to do it with just the PS4?

    If not, then do you have a better suggestion to present this without a PC or a laptop. Phones or tablets are still not powerful enough to achieve the visual quality I want, bat and Xbox and PS4 are perfect for it.

    You can't build to a PS4 as easily as you can build to desktop or a mobile device.

    You would need to enter a developer agreement with Sony and buy or get access to a PS4 dev kit in order to develop PS4 games.
