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

750°
117w 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.

134w ago - Today PlayStation 3 hacker schevens has detailed how to run PlayStation 1 (PSX / PSOne) game backups on PS3 3.55 CFW for Custom Firmware users.

Currently the method works on Kmeaw and Rebug CFW from the multiMAN File Manager instead of the PS3 XMB (they only get recognized as "PS2 DISK" there), the PS1 games are region-free and a Using PSX Eboots (to Save CD's) Guide is also available along with a Guide to Dumping, Burning and Playing PS1 Backups on PS3.

To quote: Hi there, I am ScHeVeNs a German PS3 Developer, I have found a way, to boot any burned PS1 Backup Game, its not very hard to make...

Requirements:

Instructions:

  • Start your PS3
  • Insert your burned PS1 copy

137w ago - Following their OedipusRSX PS3 RSX Reality Synthesizer Documentation, today daxgr via Gitbrew has released a PS3 RSX driver for FreeBSD via OtherOS++ CFW which is essentially a Linux kernel module.

Download: PS3 RSX Driver for FreeBSD via OtherOS++ CFW / PS3 FreeBSD LiveCD iSO (1920x1080 Resolution) / PS3 FreeBSD LiveCD iSO (Mirror)

To quote: Well I am pleased to announce that RSX Driver for FreeBSD is released. The RSX driver is the product of hard work by durandal and glevand, who gave up many hours to accomplish this. So here you go, the link for the RSX driver: http://git.gitbrew.org/~glevand/ps3/linux/ps3rsx.tar.gz

On a side note, may I add that contrary to public belief for 5 YEARS, the RSX doesnt not rely on DMA to process graphics, but rather uses PPU instructions to push objects to RSX VRAM. So yeah another breakthrough by the team who scammed everyone. Gitbrew.

PS: To all those who started complaining about this noble effort to enable...
