Sony Worldwide President Shuhei Yoshida says that they're still working on it, but you'll eventually be able to use the PlayStation Vita as a PS3 controller. He teases the functionality in a new interview in Famitsu.

A TGS last month a mock example was shown with Killzone 3 being played remotely on the Vita. Yoshida admits that this was a corded demonstration as they were worried that interference could flub up their showing.

Beyond pure Remote Play, the Vita can be used as a controller for the PlayStation 3. The system's screen can also act as a sub monitor. Andriasang says that Sony is looking into creating utility libraries that will allow PS3 developers to use the Vita's touch screen. How very Wii U of them!

Yoshida says that Sony is currently working on a library that will facilitate Remote Play functions, and that devs will receive a beta version soon. One of the first uses will be boring. A December update in Japan will bring remote control functions to PS3 digital video recording app Torne.

The eye, perhaps made most famous by Tony Hawk's Pro Skater was burned in ceremony and everyone in the studio was given a knife Crocodile Dundee would be okay with. RIP in peaces, Neversoft.more
