Sony State That The PS Vita and PS3 Can Do What The Wii U Does
Ever since the announcement of the Wii U Sony representatives have stated that the PS Vita can mimic what the Wii U can do. R&D manager at Sony Europe Phil Rogers whilst at this years Develop Conference in Britghton, told audience members that the PlayStation Vita could be used to become a Wii U like controller with the PlayStation 3.
Rodgers also told attendees that you could technically “drive a display from a PS3 game.” No doubt this feature will now become a priority at Sony in an attempt to discourage Wii U sales.
You could “drive a display from a PS3 game, for example.”
He continued: “PS3 can send data down to Vita and Vita can display it. You could use the unique features – gyroscope, touch front and back – as a control device for a PS3 game.
“You can run software on both devices and use the network to sync the game states. And that’s pretty good, because you then have the processing power of PS3 doing that work, Vita [doing] fancy graphics – however you want to do it. You’re not sacrificing the PS3′s CPU to be able to have a rich experience on Vita.”
