Sony Denies Reports of PS3 Remote Play Compatibility for PS Vita

Sponsored Links
170w 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."

no chance of remote play over 3G, it's nowhere near fast enough.

This is bs, we need to know! This could be a deal maker for me if it does it correctly.

Not only do we need to know if all games are compatible, but can we play remote play via 3G? Is it as smooth over network as it is for when you're right next to the PS3/got the cable hooked up?

You're dumb, it's more that the device needs to be technically able to run (stream) the games WELL. Doesn't matter if we force it to be done or not, the PSP can hardly run any forced PS3 games at a playable speed.

Plus the Vita's remote play system is different, who knows if it'll be exploitable anyway.

Personally, I'd want to play post 3.55 games via remote play such as GTA5, I'm sure the average PS3 user also has a 3.70 console rather than a jailbroken one too.

This I know... when I said power it was a blanket term for the PsP's capabilties, which includes the wlan. Whichever way you want to look at it though playing games with remote play is not viable in all but a few cases.

Its got nothing to do with the power of the PSP. Remote Play is just a streaming service. The PS3 is still playing the game its just streaming the video and audio to the PSP so it doesn't really need much power as its all done on the PS3.

Remote play on the PsP is terrible. While its true that you can enable all 3.55 and below games to be remote play via a cfw ps3, the reality is almost all the games are unplayable because of the power restrictions of the PsP.
