PlayStation Vita will let you stream all your PS3 games, do it at PSP resolutions

As if we didn’t have enough reasons to buy a PlayStation Vita already here comes another one. Eurogamer is reporting that with the help of a firmware update on the PS3, it will be able to stream all its games wirelessly to a PSVita. As with the PSP before, you will be able to do it from anywhere in the world as long as your PS3 and PSVita are connected to the internet.

But there is a small catch to this. The games will be played at a lower resolution, that of the Sony PSP, which is 480 x 272, which is 1/4th the resolution of the PSVita’s 960 x 544 display. The reason for this is that the older games were designed to be streamed to the PSP. However, according to Eurogamer, developers will be able to add a high resolution (480p) version to their games specifically for streaming to the PSVita.

Now the PSVita does lack a few controls compared to the PS3′s Dual Shock 3 controller but perhaps this is where the touchpad on the back would come in handy. How those games will look, however, remains a mystery although you can get a general idea from the video below.
