PlayStation Vita is also a PS3 Controller – Sony Confirms

During the Develop conference talk 2011, Sony Europe’s Phil Rogers confirmed that the PlayStation Vita will indeed be used as a PS3 controller as well. In addition, the PlayStation Vita will also have the ability to run PS3 software on the device itself, through network connection. check out Phil Roger’s statement below.

“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.”

Yes! Amazon has come through by updating their site with the all new PlayStation Vita, ready for pre-order today!
