PS Vita brings back the PSP rear view mirror


There’s a new Inside PS Vita video over at the PlayStation EU blog. It covers Cross Play – Vita’s ability to link up with PS3 so you can play cross platform games like Wipeout 2048. Remote Play to enjoy your PS3 games on PS Vita. But it also mentions the old ‘PSP as a seperate monitor’ trick.

Pete Smith, the executive producer at XDEV Studio Europe says, ”Another thing you can do which I think is incredibly exciting, is using the PS Vita and PS3 to connect as a sub-display. It’s showing the gameplay from a different perspective than the PS3 player has got. This opens up a lot of opportunities, especially for co-operative play, where one person has a different role where they’re viewing the action from a differently from the other player on PS3″.
