Remember this story back in September? We reported then that rumours were circling regarding Vita’s ability to Remote Play any PlayStation 3 title.
In fact, there was a video (linked above) of Killzone 3 running on the handheld.
Remote Play is Sony’s wrapper for streaming video and audio one way and controller input the other, meaning that as long as the PS3 is running and online the portable, once synced, would be able to ‘play’ any game inserted.
It currently works like this now on the PSP, although support is very limited and on a game by game basis.
However, assuming our earlier story holds true, a post on Eurogamer suggests that Vita’s Remote Play will be limited to the PSP’s 480 x 272 resolution, and scaled upwards.
There’s no source to Eurogamer’s story, sadly, so it’s tricky to be totally sure, but this seems like something of a disappointment to us.
Apparently a firmware update for the PS3 will be required.
