Yeah...but you do see the wire coming out of the bottom of the unit. So not only do you have to be right next to the PS3 that you are using, but the wire comes out the wrong side of the thing so that it is not comfortable to use.

I have not heard anywhere on any game board where it states you can take your PS3 games on the go; not only that, it is mimicking what Wii-U controller is clearly doing. So far Sony stance is that it' could be capable of playing PS3 games, but not that it captures it off your PS3 and you get to walk away with it. That's not what remote play is. Remote aka Remote Control aka like TV remote... You may not always need the wire in to do it, but you won't be able to walk away from your PS3 very far and expect it to keep connection.

Mysttic not sure you have read the above in the story PS3 games on the go?

how can Vita be mimicking WiiU Vita releases in Japan December Wiiu is out next year some time.

on the go means to you next to the PS3 we have different view on the words.

Remote play is an option where you VITA connets to the PS3 through PSN and allows you to control the system from anywhere... it is like remote desktop. The PSP already supports this... you just cant play most PS3 games remotely due to missing controls... you can also view movies or music on your PS3 using Remote Play... the coolest part of this is that you can use the ps3 internet browser with full flash support on the PSP or VITA... youtube it...
