It will depend on the game, however Sony is making it mandatory for all games apart from the ones that use the PS4 camera to have a vita control scheme for remote play.
They might extend it so that it can be used for normal gameplay as well but that's not been confirmed yet.

Porting for this coming generation won't be like the current one. The architecture between the PS4 and a PC are a lot closer than the PS3 and a PC. They made it their point to make the new system to be easy to develop for.
From the same article I posted they got the core of the game across in 6 months with only 2 to 3 people.
And they mentioned they've not even used some of the potential that the PS4 have, the compute units and low level access to the GPU. I won't be worried about ports for a very long time.
The standard porting process at the beginning of the Xbox 360/PS3 era seemed to be a case of targeting a lead platform and then removing features for subsequent ports, or alternatively taking a hit to performance. While multi-platform next-gen titles see the consoles take on target rather than lead platform status, there's clearly the realisation that the new machines are capable of more, and that much is to be gained by exploring platform-specific features. If Reflections can indeed achieve feature parity with the PC version, and then tailor the codebase to suit the strengths of Mark Cerny's "super-charged PC architecture", The Crew should be one to watch out for.
