Homer49, a YouTube user, has figured out a way to hack the limitations on Vita's remote play capabilities.
The handheld console's developer - Sony - had apparently restricted remote play access to games like "Killzone 3" and "Little Big Planet" and demonstrated the product keeping those same access checks, at the 2011 Tokyo Game Show.
Now, however, it appears Homer49 has figured out a way to enable remote place functionality on the Vita, allowing users the ability to play previously restricted games like "Battlefield 3", "Red Dead Redemption", "Batman: Arkham Asylum" and many others.
The officially recognized support module for remote play on the Vita is restricted to firmware version 4 and above only. The hacker, however, managed to successfully break into a PlayStation 3 (PS3) running 3.55 and disguise the Vita as a mobile phone; this allowed him to stream a variety of games from the PS3 to the Vita.
It must be said it can be a bizarre experience, initially, to play graphic-intensive games like "Battlefield 3" on the handheld console with very few, if any problems hampering the fun.
On another note, the hack aside, PS3 and PlayStation Vita fans across the world must be itching for Sony to enable full remote play functionality on their devices.
