Those gosh-darned hackers just refuse to get off Sony’s lawn, serving up yet another exploit for the outfit’s latest baby, the PlayStation Vita. Well, sort of — the Vita’s own code hasn’t been breached, but it sure plays nice with PlayStation 3 custom firmware 3.55. The PS3 tweak apparently recognizes the Vita as a mobile phone, which somehow allows it to Remote Play a wider assortment of PS3 games than normal. It’s not all unicorns and double rainbows, however, as input lag appears to be an issue — but it should help tide over enterprising Vita owners until Sony officially expands its list of Remote Play-compatible titles. In the meantime, those on the straight and narrow can console themselves with the Vita’s recently updated 3G data plan. Hit the break to see the trick cram Battlefield 3 onto the small screen.
