Enterprising hackers, who have cracked open the PS3's v3.55 firmware, now have a pretty neat feature running on Sony's new handheld: the ability to remotely play games like Battlefield 3 on a PlayStation Vita.

While remote play itself is nothing new, having been enabled between the PS3 and PSP (and already some Vita games), it's far from a widespread feature. And is definitely not supported on games like Battlefield 3, Arkham Asylum or Red Dead Redemption.

Yet in the video above, there they are, running on that sexy little screen with those sexy little thumbsticks. Sure, there's massive amounts of lag, but dammit, that's what we must endure to have progress!
