PS3 Firmware Update to Enable PS Vita Remote Play on All Games


Sponsored Links
161w ago - Previously we reported on a leaked document revealing PS3-Vita connectivity followed by some PS Vita PS3 Remote Play demo videos from TGS 2011, and today Eurogamer (linked above) reports that a PS3 Firmware update will enable PlayStation Vita Remote Play on all games.

To quote: "A future PlayStation 3 Firmware update will enable Vita Remote Play on all games, Eurogamer has learnt. However, this will be only at the PlayStation Portable 480x272 resolution, which will be upscaled to fill the screen.

For future games, developers will be able to include Vita specific 480p modes, Eurogamer understands. Vita's OLED display is actually capable of displaying games at 960x544 pixel resolution.

Vita Remote Play is how Sony's new handheld interacts with the PS3.

In a Tokyo Game Show demonstration Sony's Shuhei Yoshida played a brief section of Killzone 3 streamed into the device from a PlayStation 3 unit, noting how a few of the Dual Shock buttons missing on the Vita are mapped to the touchscreen.

Vita can also be used in co-operative play with PS3 games. While a colleague played through a specially constructed LittleBigPlanet 2 level with a Dual Shock controller, Yoshida controlled an aeroplane via the Vita's touch screen, helping Sackboy reach his goal by altering the environment.

Sony declined to comment when contacted by Eurogamer."

Finally, below is a video demonstrating the PlayStation Vita user interface.

no chance of remote play over 3G, it's nowhere near fast enough.

This is bs, we need to know! This could be a deal maker for me if it does it correctly.

Not only do we need to know if all games are compatible, but can we play remote play via 3G? Is it as smooth over network as it is for when you're right next to the PS3/got the cable hooked up?

You're dumb, it's more that the device needs to be technically able to run (stream) the games WELL. Doesn't matter if we force it to be done or not, the PSP can hardly run any forced PS3 games at a playable speed.

Plus the Vita's remote play system is different, who knows if it'll be exploitable anyway.

Personally, I'd want to play post 3.55 games via remote play such as GTA5, I'm sure the average PS3 user also has a 3.70 console rather than a jailbroken one too.

This I know... when I said power it was a blanket term for the PsP's capabilties, which includes the wlan. Whichever way you want to look at it though playing games with remote play is not viable in all but a few cases.

Its got nothing to do with the power of the PSP. Remote Play is just a streaming service. The PS3 is still playing the game its just streaming the video and audio to the PSP so it doesn't really need much power as its all done on the PS3.
