181w 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."

LOL. GH mentioned that he would go for Sony's Xperia Play when it was released but then Sony got involved.

But yeah I'm hoping for the same thing. It might not be likely but I still want to get one early so if there isn't a universal downgrader ready yet, I'll still be at early firmware so I'll be fine

I hope the Vita gets hacked in the first month. That would be awesome but I doubt it. Well it probably will but I doubt the devs who do it will release it as they will probably be the PS3 devs doing it and they are pricks.

Oh, I can see the future. 1 week after the Vita is released there is a tweet from Math "I've hacked the Vita and it can play backups but I'm not releasing it"

Would be interesting if the PS Vita led to a jailbreak for the PS3. Sony would have to be in a frenzy lol. You never know

This is another reason to jailbreak your PS3 and install CFW as you can tell ALL your games to run via remote play and they do. Yea, you miss out on a few buttons and a 2nd analog stick but for some games it doesn't matter and they are very playable.

This is 1 reason why I don't understand why Sony do what they do? All games can be remote played on the PSP so why won't they enable it on the Vita?

Its just like everything these days. The big companies bring out devices then hold them back from their full potential. Not sure why. PSP can play PS3 game via remote play, the iPhones can use Siri but only the iPhone 4S is allowed, iPad 3G can send and receive SMS/MMS but Apple refuse to let it. No wonder people jailbreak their devices to use them the way they should be used.

Pshhh, yeah right. They paid a guy to say he misconstrued the facts, because $ony just can't deliver anything they promise. Either that, or they'll steal it back from you.

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.


That is certainly the case in my experience. I got a slim when I found out the fats couldn't do Skype and was shocked at the difference in build quality. When playing ssx on tour the fat would stutter sometimes but the higher ram of the slim would not.
