It seems that the new PlayStation Vita is capable of more than Sony wanted to reveal at this time. As for the older PSP, Vita has implemented the Remote Play function, which works in tandem with a PlayStation 3. Specifically, the console “big” is running the game itself and sends a video stream via local network or of the Internet to the screen of portable gaming system.
Unfortunately, this function, in the case of the older PSP was limited to a few games, not too interesting. Things changed fundamentally when it comes to the new portable console from Sony. Using a modified firmware (v3.55) for PS3, hackers were able to activate the Remote Play for almost any title tested, Vita becoming an ideal way to continue a game session where access to TV is interrupted from one reason or another. Currently, there is a noticeable lag between pressing a button and perform the action attached to it, characteristic defect and streaming of video games (like OnLive or Gaikai).
In fact, Sony has promised that this facility will be officially supported in the future more or less near the Remote Play feature now present in the PlayStation Vita and official firmware for PlayStation 3 is extremely limited. Option would be a pity that so easily implemented by hackers to not make an appearance and formally, given the huge potential of this feature that allows “remote play”.
PlayStation Vita will be launched in Europe from 22 February 2012. Until then, you can watch at videos of games Red Dead Redemption, Batman: Arkham Asylum, Mortal Kombat and Battlefield 3, run on PlayStation Vita through this hack.
