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


Sponsored Links
143w 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.

Than probably you haven't seen PS3 at all as ANY PS3 can indeed use DVI - I use it all the time - ever heard of HDMI / DVI cable??
... I obviously meant it has no DVI port. Well all know there are HDMI to DVI cables and adapters.

Its not just this its all of the info and hype about the vita. dont forget the first announcement is wrong as they have already halved the ram in it. So from what we know to what the Vita will be at launch will be different then wait a year and it will be even less.
From history look at what they do.

PS2 - PStwo
PS3 - PS3 slim
PSP -PSP Slim

All have been reduced in quality and features but the price doesn't drop at all. The Vita wont miss out. The launch Vita will be different than to the vita a year later and it will be missing features. And what you think if it now will not be what is released. I highly doubt it'll play all PS3 games via remote play. Give it a year and it might play 50% and that will be a push.

They said about the same thing when the PSP and remote play but it went nowhere. I doubt it'll be as good as they hype here.

All $ony do is hype it up before launch then remove features so I doubt it'll be good enough to play all PS3 games.

And whats with the low res? Most phones these days are better.
i'd hardly call this hyping - this is a leak from an anonymous source, not something from Sony.

HDMI is all in one audio and video, DVI is video only so you need another cable for sound. I know this as thats how I had it set up at the start. I don't think there is any 360's with a DVI plug. I haven't seen the slim but I doubt it'll have one. Does the slim even have the usual 360 cable or just HDMI?

I've got 3 360's here and all are different models and none have a DVI plug. Only 1 has a HDMI plug the other 2 have the normal 360 plug.
I think there is an aftermarket cable with the DVI plug but I'm not sure as I've never seen one. I worked in a repair shop for the last few years so I've seen just about all models of 360's

No PS3 that I know of even uses a DVI cable, only the 360 has a DVI port (or at least some models).

Than probably you haven't seen PS3 at all as ANY PS3 can indeed use DVI - I use it all the time - ever heard of HDMI / DVI cable??

2 Foo - What you've said make NO sense whatsoever as DVI = HDMI - sound ... e.g. exactly the same digital picture quality / resolution, just different plug.
