It looks like PlayStation Mobile is turning out to be a very interesting piece of software indeed. Primarily thought to be a platform for just playing mobile-type games on the Vita and other devices, some clever users have managed to use the SDK to get full working games from other platforms running on the Vita.
Last week we told you how another user had used the exact same method to get the likes of Final Fantasy X, Metal Gear Solid, Super Mario Bros 3 and Valve classic Left 4 Dead running on the system. Now though, we have another game to show off and it is something you are all going to be impressed with.
YouTube user EyePatchCars has managed to get Skyrim running on the PS Vita, although the quality of the port is far from perfect. FPS is only running at between 25-35 FPS and as you can see from the video below, a proper control scheme still needs to be implemented.
You may remember that the last series of videos even showed off working motion controls from the ported games, but this version of Skyrim here doesn’t appear to be at that stage at the moment. Still though, it is another glaring reminder of Sony’s lack of effort in bringing this to the Vita as an official feature – as advertised prior to launch.
Think about how many Vita systems Sony would sell, if you could pick up any PS3 game knowing that it is also going to be fully compatibile with Remote Play on the Vita. Playing Skyrim on the Vita in its fullest quality remains a dream for the time being, but hopefully with videos like this – help is soon going to be available in an unofficial capacity.
Are you going to be angry if Sony block this feature from the PlayStation Mobile software once it releases properly? For us, Remote Play is an essential feature that really needs to arrive before owners lose faith. It is easy money for Sony isn’t it guys? Let us know your thoughts on this.
