PS3 firmware lets you play PS3 games on your Vita

Remote Play Uncharted 3 in the palm of our hands? Yes please

The Playstation Vita may still be a good few months away, but that hasn’t stopped Sony from demonstrating a shiny new Remote Play feature which lets you play PS3 titles on your Vita.

The magic is made possible by a new PS3 firmware update, enabling it to pump out 480p resolution games directly to your hands for the ultimate portable gaming experience.

The new update was demoed in a Tokyo Game Show demonstration, which also saw a Dual Shock Controller and a Vita being used in one game simultaneously. Your move, Wii U.
