PS3 can send data down to Vita and Vita can display it.
Sony has detailed some Vita features which enables you to use it as a controller for the PS3. Sounds exciting, doesn’t it? Phil Rogers, Europe R&D manager, explained more about this feature to Eurogamer.
“PS3 can send data down to Vita and Vita can display it. You could use the unique features [of Vita] – gyroscope, touch front and back – as a control device for a PS3 game.”
“You can run software on both devices and use the network to sync the game states. And that’s pretty good, because you then have the processing power of PS3 doing that work, Vita [doing] fancy graphics – however you want to do it. You’re not sacrificing the PS3’s CPU to be able to have a rich experience on Vita.”
This is indeed an exciting development, and you can read about it more here.
