Sony Denies Reports of PS3 Remote Play Compatibility for PS Vita


Sponsored Links
138w ago - Following up on the previous report by Eurogamer, today Sony Computer Entertainment Senior VP Yoshio Matsumoto and Division 2 Software Development Head Muneki Shimada denied the report meaning there isn't a universal solution planned for making all PS3 games playable remotely on PS Vita.

To quote via Andriasang.com (linked above): "Freelance journalist Munechika Nishida conducted an interview with Sony's PlayStation Vita development staff for the latest installment of his "Random Tracking" series at Impress Watch.

He asked Sony Computer Entertainment Senior VP Yoshio Matsumoto and Division 2 Software Development Head Muneki Shimada about the reports.

"That information is mistaken," said Matsumoto. "The compatibility is achieved on the side of the PS3 game, just like normal."

Shimada agreed, saying that as with previous implementations of Remote Play, games will need API support."

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.

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.
I agree with this but I think the PSP slim models wer4e able to run things such as homebrew a bit better than the older models.
