We’ve got some great news on Remote Play. For those who don’t know, Remote Play allows you via a Wi-Fi connection to interact remotely with your PS3, using your PS Vita, and play a selection of compatible games. Today we can announce two fantastic PS3 collections are now available to play remotely on your PS Vita.
First up, God of War Collection, which features the two classic titles God of War and God of War II remastered in HD. And for the video game connoisseurs out there, the amazing ICO and Shadow Of The Colossus Collection is also available, featuring two of the most critically acclaimed games of all time remastered in HD. Both of the above collections have an intuitive new control system where you can choose to have the R2 and L2 buttons mapped to the rear touch pad. And these two titles look fantastic on the 5” OLED screen of your PS Vita and offer some of the very best gaming on PlayStation.
As well as play selected games remotely, you can also access music, videos, photos and use certain applications such as VidZone on your PS Vita or PSP. For instructions on how to set up your PS3 and PS Vita for Remote Play please visit our guide here.
