November 24, 2011 // 6:56 pm - Previously we reported on a leaked document revealing PS3-Vita connectivity followed by some PS Vita PS3 Remote Play demo videos from TGS 2011, and today Eurogamer (linked above) reports that a PS3 Firmware update will enable PlayStation Vita Remote Play on all games.

To quote: "A future PlayStation 3 Firmware update will enable Vita Remote Play on all games, Eurogamer has learnt. However, this will be only at the PlayStation Portable 480x272 resolution, which will be upscaled to fill the screen.

For future games, developers will be able to include Vita specific 480p modes, Eurogamer understands. Vita's OLED display is actually capable of displaying games at 960x544 pixel resolution.

Vita Remote Play is how Sony's new handheld interacts with the PS3.

In a Tokyo Game Show demonstration Sony's Shuhei Yoshida played a brief section of Killzone 3 streamed into the device from a PlayStation 3 unit, noting how a few of the Dual Shock buttons missing on the Vita are mapped to the touchscreen.

Vita can also be used in co-operative play with PS3 games. While a colleague played through a specially constructed LittleBigPlanet 2 level with a Dual Shock controller, Yoshida controlled an aeroplane via the Vita's touch screen, helping Sackboy reach his goal by altering the environment.

Sony declined to comment when contacted by Eurogamer."

Finally, below is a video demonstrating the PlayStation Vita user interface.

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.

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.

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.

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 (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."

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.

To be honest, expect a good result, this time. I was at TGS

If people are really interested in 'Remote Play' just get that Sony HUD 3D TV.

Doesn't disturb others and you can use it just fine.

I'm not quite following what is about all the fuss , if you have 42 inch telly for playing HD games you don't need stream them to tiny screen of potable console whole idea is sick and just added as thing we do not actually need, as actual amount of data is to large to be send it over 3G network so you can use it in your home only with wifi.

who in clear mind would go instead of 42 inch 3D tv in home to console with small screen unless he just want to show friend that he can do it, and I still thing that friend would look at him like hi is out his mind having big 3D tv at home and playing at small console.
