Dude plays Skyrim on Vita RemotePlay, Internet asks why isn’t this a thing yet?

Monday, 16th July 2012 04:50 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Reader rrw sent in this video of someone playing The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on a Vita. This is not a thing you can do unless you’re good with technical tomfoolery, and in fact doesn’t actually work that well – but holy bananas I could get behind a proper port of the Life Eater, couldn’t you? Sony has shown off PlayStation 3 games running via the Vita’s RemotePlay function in the past, but there’s no word on when the feature will become publicly available.

    Haven’t you heard? Sony hates money.

    Its the opposite. Why buy games for the vita when you can get them through the PC. Its a controlled market.

    at certain point the creator said he will sell the app thought PS mobile you need to pay $99 for publishing cost

    anyway you can actually try it now

    (perfectly legal since it from sony own PS mobile service.)

    there is actually many video from that sofware such as L4D

    I’d imagine third party publishers would flip their shit if Sony officially released this app allowing people to play their games on the Vita without their say so.

    People will need a copy of the game anyway.

    @4 doubtful, even though Vita is a handheld gaming console, remote play is nothing to hurt anyone’s revenue. It’s like a controller with screen of its own, the game is not running on it it streams through it. it would be incredibly moronic for Sony to standby on this and let it go. If anything it’ll boost Vita’s sales.

    I think at the very least the Gaikai deal will be beneficial to any official Vita remote play functionality. These demos of PC and PS3 games running via remote play are all well and good, but as mentioned in the article above and as with other previous demos don’t work that well yet. Before Sony can release this sort of thing as official and supported it needs to be better. The tech Gaikai own can potentially help here.
