Sony Denies Reports of PS3 Remote Play Compatibility for PS Vita

Sponsored Links
159w 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."

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

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.

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

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.

I've never seen the appeal of remote play for games, if you have a Ps3 then why would you want to stream scaled down graphics to your PsVita. Remote play is great for streaming music to psp from the ps3's much larger storage, so I guess it will be just as good on the PsVitsa.
