Hacks let PS Vita stream full PS3 games with Remote Play

PS Vita can control full PS3 games with tricks

A new hack demoed on video (below) has shown that the PS Vita can play full PS3 games through Remote Play. A jailbroken and modified version of the PS3's 3.55 firmware, lower than the most recent official build, can pipe through full games such as Battlefield 3 and the Mortal Kombat remake without having to get official support. Sony only allows its current list of PSP-aware Remote Play games to work.

The trick portrays the Vita as a phone to the PS3. In practice, there's significant lag, although certain games are playable as-is.

Sony is expected to more officially bless Remote Play from the PS3 in the future and showed Killzone 3 running this fall. By the time it goes live, it's likely to curb much of the lag on a local Wi-Fi connection. [via Joystiq]
