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


Sponsored Links
140w 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.

Pshhh, yeah right. They paid a guy to say he misconstrued the facts, because $ony just can't deliver anything they promise. Either that, or they'll steal it back from you.

Maybe but the phat PSP was a lot stronger than the slim and it was built better. Thats not just me talking thats what my repair guy told me when he repaired his first PSP Slim. Same goes for the PS3 Slim too. It's built even cheaper than the PS3 Phat.

So when Sony upgrade the model to a slim it not only gets slimmer it gets built cheaper and the quality is also cheaper. But usually the price is the same.

That's how they make money. They hype you in to the console then drop features and quality then sell it at the same price with an inferior device.

That is certainly the case in my experience. I got a slim when I found out the fats couldn't do Skype and was shocked at the difference in build quality. When playing ssx on tour the fat would stutter sometimes but the higher ram of the slim would not.
