Vita used to play pirated PS3 games

Several videos have emerged online that appear to depict hackers playing pirated PS3 games on PlayStation Vita.

Eurogamer reports that the exploit requires a PS3 using the old 3.55 firmware version. Even though Vita Remote Play support was only introduced with the 4.00 firmware release, this restriction can be circumvented within the OS settings.

Games seen being played in the videos include Red Dead Redemption, Battlefield 3 and Batman: Arkham Asylum.

However, from the evidence presented so far the performance of these titles is patchy to say the least, lagging way behind what is possible with proper Remote Play functionality.

Sony has previously expressed its intention to enable Vita Remote Play with PS3’s entire software library, with certain titles supporting a higher framerate.

Hmmm, Ttile should have read differently. The story I saw showed someone playing Red Dead Redemption which is available on the PS Store. If the PS Vita is so easily pirated then Sony have learned nothing from the PSP.
