Hacked PS3 Lets You Play Battlefield 3, Red Dead Redemption on the Vita

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!

So...what..?

Didn't Sony say they would do this for all PS3 games eventually? So PS3/Vita gamers can get a laggy(ier) version now then?

Also, how easy is this thing to hack? Its been 2 months already, and its not even some major hacking with emulation and pirated games, but this doesn't seem like the best of things to me, especially considering that Sony said they were going to do it anyway.

But then again its 'Sony said'. TROLOLOLOLOL
