99w 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.

99w ago - SCEA Product Marketing Manager Wilson Cheng is here with an introductory preview video of WipEout 2048 for the PlayStation Vita platform.
To quote: What you'll find below is a specially narrated cut of the cinematic intro to WipEout 2048 on PlayStation Vita.
Essentially, the movie's goal is to take you on a journey through the evolution of motorsport in Studio Liverpool's vision of the world, up until the point where Anti-Gravity technology has replaced modern day automotive technology and the first season of the Anti-Gravity Racing Championships has kicked off on the streets of Nova State City.
So, without further ado, sit back, press play and let Game Director Graeme Ankers, and Art Director Lee Carus, take you on a trip through time to the year 2048.
What did you think? Pretty cool, no? What's really interesting about WipEout 2048 and the direction the team at Studio Liverpool took with it, is that it takes place in the not too distant future and serves as a precursor to the events that take place in the original WipEout on PS one. And because of that it differs from WipEout experiences in the past.
Races are now multi-tiered - one minute you're barreling through the busy streets...
