Videos: PlayStation Vita PS3 Remote Play Gaming Demos via CFW?

Sponsored Links
153w ago - This weekend Spanish user homer49 has posted some videos on YouTube of PlayStation Vita allegedly running several games via Remote Play with PS3 Custom Firmware (CFW) 3.55 and 3.41.

Titles demonstrated below include Red Dead Redemption, Batman: Arkham Asylum, Alice: Madness Returns, and Mortal Kombat supposedly running on the PS Vita handheld console.

To quote from PlayStationLifeStyle.net (linked above): Another element of intrigue also comes in at the 1:53 mark of the Batman: Arkham Asylum video, which appears to show how the PS3's controls are mapped to the Vita's inputs.

He did leave an unclear, cryptic message at the beginning of the Alice video in response to claims that his videos are fake, which makes no sense even when translated:

Is it remote play? Obviously, yes. Is it fake? Did you have a dream? That maybe it was so real you couldn't distinguish it from reality. And if you couldn't wake up from this dream, how would you know if you're not dreaming? One more time, Sony does not tell the truth.

How to Remote Play PlayStation 3 PS Vita, and play any PS3 game. You will need:

  • PS3 CFW 3.55 or 3.41
  • Multiman installed (eg)
  • Register PS Vita PS3 mobile phone.

Finally, some pictures are also available of the process for those interested!

Well remote play is obviously nothing new, but Sony indicated that you will need to update to 4.00 firmware to use remote play with your PS Vita. So this guy showing us the PS Vita working on a 3.55 CFW PS3 via remote play is something new. At least for me it is.

Both you and HeyManHRU are missing the point here - this is NOTHING new - it works exactly the same way as PSP Remote play - also using the same low quality - so the fact it's running on Vita is in no way "surprise" as current Remote Play on Vita works exactly the same way (and with exactly the same games) as PSP, there is no difference in quality or list of the supported games, the only thing "added" by current 4.00 FW is that you can actually register Vita directly with PS3, nothing more, nothing less.

I repeat - the current remote play is the same as on PSP (with the only one small "addition" - that you have extra mapping options for controlls like using back touch pad for L2 / R2 or mapping the right analogue stick as well, but apart of that, no new games, no high res picture etc.)

I was working on a port of the PS Vita drivers from the firmware 4.0 to take more control of this one on a CFW, also it's one of the possible best access to exploit the PS Vita (more about it later)

i put on standby some of my works until the release of PS Vita EU/US and have some problem right now, i have 2 PS3 Ylod that can't help a lot.
