Last week, a Eurogamer source claimed all PlayStation 3 games would be playable on PlayStation Vita, using the Remote Play function, through an upcoming PlayStation 3 firmware update. Sony Computer Entertainment Japan today denied that claim.
An Impress Watch interview with Sony Computer Entertainment senior VP Yoshio Matsumoto and Division 2 Software Development boss Muneki Shimada states the murmurs are simply not accurate.
“That information is mistaken,” said Matsumoto. “The compatibility is achieved on the side of the PS3 game, just like normal.”
Shimada agreed, and added that in order to remotely play a PlayStation 3 game on PlayStation Vita, developers would have to implement it via API.
