It is quite unfortunate this requires custom firmware,
I really hope the PS4 makes it so all its games can be played on the PS VITA in the future.

Games like these are meant to be enjoyed on the VITA (as well as on the big screen, IMHO)
aCasualGamer  +   1092d ago
This gives me confidence. It means that there shouldn't be anything stopping Sony from implementing this on PS4. Think of it, all PS4 buyers could potentially be PS Vita buyers in the near future. They say "hmm... i want a wii u because of that pairing functionality. Or... maybe i should get the Vita!"

i cant see why not, at least when you're playing at home. both have wireless-n connectivity, at least the PS vita has it, so im sure the PS4 will have it'

i cant see the reason why they shouldnt include it.

Miracast works as an app on phones with a typical home router and phone hardware (that's usually super skewed) so, a console built from the ground up should offer a lag free, high quality image game streaming solution in home from PS4 to a handheld.

But I guess we will find out in 6-5 days. :)
USEYOURFIST  +   1092d ago
The problem isn't so much the machines capability to perform remote play, although lag on Wiiu shows you do need more power for perfect remote play, according to something on the eublog ages ago its actually alot to do with licencing issues as games are licenced for display on tv, however if the game was to then run on a secondary screen on a potable system not originally in the agreement things get complicated...basically publishers need to agree to there game being played on a device other then what it was intended for. Though I would buy a vita straight away if the remote play we actually want was implemented in ps4.
NukaCola  +   1092d ago
It can and I am sure with PS4 and Gaikai it will. It's a firmware update they can do. SotC/ICO is capable via a legally approved update, so hopefuly we will see it. Feb 20th.

Aw man, I got excited for second.
aceitman  +   1092d ago
it can be done , someone I know that works in a sony store said a quote from a ps3 sony rep that the ps4 will have a section of android base ios style where your able to buy games and play on ps4 and all sony tablets and phones. and that the web browser will be google chrome.he said it is possible that the feature may be announced feb 20th if not it will be announced at e3. I was told that the rep also told them about the move a few weeks before they announced it.oh yeah when it all gets tested on the vita will have a firmware update to do the same. it will be a good move, think about it want small fast games cheap play , want the triple AAA games play it.wont be surprised to see a rumor come out on it.

Sorry to say but I worked in game retail for years and most of the crap Sony and Xbox reps told us was completely wrong. They are not given any info on r&d until its time to promote the product.
soljah  +   1092d ago
man leaving on a trip tomorrow for a week. 12hr flight boy would i love to play nnk on the vita. could get so much grinding done on the plane. then transfer a save back to the ps3 when i get home would be ideal.
Aggesan  +   1092d ago
Remote play wouldn't help you much on a plane. Another vita exclusive ghibli/level 5 game though, that would be a real treat!
jony_dols  +   1092d ago
Well most commercial airlines these days are equipped with Wifi. So if he did have a CFW PS3 & a Vita, he could play Ni No Kuni via a network connection.

Why Sony haven't bothered to officially open up remote play is baffling, it's just driving people to buy jailbroken PS3's...
showtimefolks  +   1092d ago
this should be sony's answer for wii-u gamepad in high res and could be a killer package and could help sales of both ps3 and ps-vita
Ult iMate  +   1092d ago
Sony must make this thing mandatory at least for PS4.
GribbleGrunger  +   1092d ago
I've got a feeling that the 20th could change all of this ...
Seraphim  +   1092d ago
jealous, extremely jealous. Sad, extremely sad. to think this past week I could have put another 20 hours into Ni No Kuni had I been able to play remotely. Instead I'm right where I left off a week ago and who knows when I'll find the time to sit down in front of the tv to continue.

I'm not sure what the hold up is regarding Remote Play but even w/ the PSP it was a long lost feature. It's truly sad that more games don't offer gamers the ability to use this feature. Obviously Ni No Kuni isn't coming to the Vita. Why not at least make it accessible to PS3/PSV gamers? Honestly I could actually see this creating not only PS3 sales but game sales as well. Seems there's quite a few people who only own a handheld I bet w/ Remote play more and more would buy a PS3 and start picking up some of the games that offer this feature... I guess the good news is that at least Sony is trying and giving us Cross Buy content. Still, in the grand scheme of things it seems like $$ is just being wasted on developing 2 different games instead of implementing Remote Play into 1.
demonJAKAL  +   1092d ago
I'm hoping they announce full remote play for vita using Gaikai on the 20th
shutUpAndTakeMyMoney  +   1092d ago
I bet ps4 will do with vita anyway.

But also play anywhere through gaikai.

ug CFW -_- Sony come on, support remote play more.
Godchild1020  +   1092d ago
Sony, Namco or Level 5 needs to make this happen. I would love to play this on my Vita.

I'm ready to purchase another Vita just to load up a custom firmware, if it's the only way to play games Via remote play.

Nitrowolf2  +   1092d ago
eh I think it's CFW PS3 running this from my knowledge, there's an option to make all games remote play. I mean it's pretty silly it's not supported by Sony, but it maybe due to control issues maybe?
NastyLeftHook0  +   1092d ago
i hope they do.
TongkatAli  +   1092d ago

PopRocks359  +   1092d ago
DAMN. Who knew? Good show on the dudes who created that firmware. Sony ought to make this an official part of the firmware.

cmpunk53  +   1092d ago
So awesome! One of the vita features that is never utilized by sony and this video is another evidence that it can be done.

They should hire this cfw guys instead since sony's own guys are pathetic.
cero55  +   1092d ago
Sony take notes
strigoi814  +   1092d ago
sony please make this happen.
MartinB105  +   1092d ago
Am I the only person who does most of my Vita gaming when I'm travelling (e.g. commuting to/from work) without an Internet connection? This makes Remote Play a practically useless feature to me.

The Vita OLED screen looks very nice, but the experience on Vita simply doesn't compare to a 42" TV with higher definition, the nicer DualShock 3 controller and 5.1 surround.

I'd be all over this if the game ran natively on the Vita allowing me to play the game away from home, but a remote play solution simply wouldn't cut it for me.

Its such a shame sony doesnt allow more games to be playable through remote play. So far only the gow collection and sotc&ico collection allow it.
porkChop  +   1092d ago
Clearly this works well enough and the lag is minimal. I don't understand why Sony still doesn't support this type of Remote Play? I mean when they announced the Vita they even demoed it playing Killzone 3 via Remote Play. Then when the Vita released they ran a trailer on their site claiming you could Remote Play PS3 games, while showing Killzone 3 in the background. They quickly pulled the trailer because of false advertising. They literally showed everyone that it was possible, yet they STILL don't support it.

It would be unfortunate, but I get the feeling that Sony is purposely holding the feature back for the PS4. I guess it would be great marketing and a good way to get people to buy a PS4 AND a Vita. But still, false advertising on their part, and I'm still kinda pissed about that.

I really do love my Vita though, and I play it all the time. But it just pisses me off because I know the thing could be capable of so much more if Sony would open their damn eyes.
Clover904  +   1092d ago
God I hope Sony steps up its remote play support in the new Playstation. I'd buy this game NOW if I'm could play on the ps3 and the vita.
CommonSenseGamer  +   1092d ago
I thought remote play was one of the selling points of the Vita.
Blackcanary  +   1092d ago
Sony need to make this happen.
DivineAssault  +   1092d ago
Another reason why i want PS4 so badly.. Im sure the vita integration is going to be fantastic..
Grimicyn  +   1092d ago
I don't know why Sony passed this up. We need more solid RPG's on VITA. They could have easily released FF 1 and 2, which are already for psp in HD, and gave them trophies for vita. Not to mention III-XII. Give us more RPG's! I love the system, but I want better software!
ApolloTheBoss  +   1092d ago
That looks so damn beautiful.
kingPoS  +   1092d ago
Ok! imagine this scenario.

Your ps3 is connected by Ethernet to a gigabit port of a router.
You have 100mb/10mb highspeed internet at home.
Your workplace happens to have free highspeed internet via wifi n within range.
You have CFW on both your ps3 & vita.
You have Ni no Kuni loaded in the ps3.
It's Break time... and you have a fully charged vita in your hands.

You'd be surprised at how often this actually happens at work.

Whxian  +   1091d ago
technically you dont even need cfw for the vita for remote play to work like this, the funny thing is that for the games that arent allowed remote play, its just about opening a file and editing a line to "enable" remoteplay

I think they are saving remote play exclusively for the PS4 so we will buy one. The PS4 is going to be so many things the PS3 wanted to be but just couldn't. I got my vita just need my PS4 and I'll be all set.
profgerbik  +   1092d ago
PS Vita came out around when the PS4 was in development it makes complete sense to me why the PS Vita doesn't have a ton of functionality with the PS3 because the PS3 came out way before the PS Vita.

Chances are they already planned better connectivity with PS4 it just makes sense since both the PS Vita and PS4 were probably being developed around the same times.

With Gaikai also this could be done even easier so I am not really worried, Sony has been planning ahead.

Come on, Sony. Why isn't this available with the official firmware yet?
Kidmyst  +   1092d ago
Hoping Sony makes this happen more, would love for big games like GTAV to be able to continue play on the go like Sony showed off last E3 with that one RPG looking game.
SAE  +   1091d ago
You guys see why i hate how sony handle the ps vita ?. limit it too helllllll. But i think they wil lsupport this feature on the ps4. It doesn't need an update for each game. Just run the remote to controle the ps3 not the games and then you will be able to play any game. Hackers proved this ..
specialguest  +   1091d ago
This is what pisses me off about Sony
They suck at supporting their products. Where the hell are the remote play games?!? This remote play and more are all possible. Vita was advertised on the remote play feature, but to date only 20-25 mostly psn games supported and not even good ones(zuma? Bejeweled??)
Deku-Johnny  +   1091d ago
This game would be far better off on Wii U. The graphics would be better (both on TV and off-screen) and Nintendo appeals to casual gamers more than Sony does.
freezola75  +   1091d ago
Man I have been yelling and screaming for NNK to be on the Vita... just go look at my previous post on here....

So you need a custom firmware to do this... smh. Why is it that Sony can make things so hard for themselves..

Who knows maybe they might have sold some more Vitas if this feature was available via remote play idk..

But this upsets me.. I would die happy if I could play NNK (and some others), on the go or via remote play

I am sure they have their reasons.. but for the life of me.. I just don't understand why.. Peace
profgerbik  +   1091d ago
No offense but I really feel like Sony should have pushed to put this on the PS Vita, just like Gravity Rush.

Many people don't even know Gravity Rush was actually planned to be on the PS3 but Sony thought it would fit perfectly on the Vita which it did.

I think a game like this really would have helped sell the PS Vita but again I do know Gaikai is right around the corner so I can't complain. I know it will be possible but I just feel it should have been on the Vita anyway at least this title.
