Polygon: While BioShock Infinite does not officially support Remote Play via PlayStation Vita devices, gamer John Trevor has used custom firmware installed on his PlayStation 3 to provide a go-around.
custom firmware :( dang!!
Yep. This is nothing new, either. The "evil, destructive" hackers have been able to remote play pretty much any/every PS3 game for months now. It pisses me off because Sony has been all talk, no show with their promised remote play functionality between the Vita and PS3, yet its obviously possible if hackers can do this.
I agree. One of the main reasons I bought my Vita was to remotely play my PS3 games. It was a cool feature I just could not pass up. And what do we get, only a handful of games that use it-none of which I even care for. I hope they aren't lying to us again claiming that PS4 games will use it.
Well the difference between hackers and Sonys development team is that hackers truly want to do things that are innovative, which for them is a challenge and which for them is to have remote play for every game. Sony on the other hand just want to have a selling point, which for them is to bullshit everyone about having remote play with everything.
@teedog I think of it like this man. If I actually owned a Vita, I would see if Sony would actually have the remote play feature for every game for the first year or so, and if it didn't I would just install custom firmware, and take advantage of all its features.
The reason its going to be different with the Ps4 is because Sony like Microsoft will have a set of rules for there system to support the Vita. I mean look at all this past month on what Sony has been doing with the Vita Ps3, Ps4 in terms of games/ Indie games. I have no doubt that the Vita will be a big contender with the Ps4 with remote play.
Remote play via custom firmware is barely playable. Sony want to make it a good experience before they implement it properly in the ps4.
they never actually promised every game would be playable through remote play for ps3
Video length is 1337 on purpose.
it's 1338 on my PC
I think developers should allow all PS3 games to be played on the PS Vita. I mean it's not even that hard through Remote Play. You want L2,R2,L3 and R3? Just use the back touch pad like GOW HD and Ico&Shadow Of The Colossus does. No biggy.
It feels like Sony used the PS3 as a beta test with remote play for the PS4. It's practically useless on the PS3 there is about 2 worth while games to use it with (Shadows of the colossus and God of war) Here's hoping they do a better job of it next gen because there is a lot of untapped potential.
I actually commented the same last month when the ps4 was shown. I feel the ps3 remote play was a beta test which worked pretty well but now with gaikie in the mix the remote play will be even better. Sony is clearly trying to turn a new leaf and give gamers/dev what they want....ps4 will be a whole new ballgame. Still waiting on 720. the rumors are making it look pretty...bad. I dont pay much attention to rumors but that always on, no used games, and Kinect watching you stuff are pretty unappealing
I would cry playing it on my Vita...PS4 hurry up dam you!
Yeah was checking out how the move would work with the game & it seems pretty good aswell. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
So this is being done on the Vita already? I just saw a custom firmware for it where they were playing Ni no Kuni a month ago or so. Now they're doing Bioshock Infinite.. I honestly want to find out how to do this... but why is this not done yet is my question to you Sony. Peace
Time and money. It's not as easy as pushing a button to turn on vita remote play. It's on the publisher as to whether or not include remote play ( which at this point may not even be an option, since its a selling point that Microsoft cannot compete with). It sounds like on the ps4 won't even be an option... remote play is a must, which is great for the consumer.
Remote play was pretty much why I bought a Vita. When Sony reneg'd on that feature I was so pissed 'cus I wasn't lucky enough to have custom firmware. I won't let that happen again. The moment PS4 gets CFW, I'm in.
Maybe they might patch it to support remote play, i doubt it though. :(

looks fine to me
Looks and plays are totally different. It's a lag. If you pay close attention to his play it is extremely static.
screw CFW, I will patiently wait for the PS4 and then I will be able to enjoy remote play the way it should be. I would rather be able to log into the network & use the store since I don't pirate games along with the other features that will be lost with a CFW installed.
actually, technically that's playable on PS3 with PS Vita.
Bioshock Vita Lives ^_^
