Sony PlayStation Vita to double as PS3 controller?

Sony PS Vita to support PS3 controller capabilities?

The upcoming Sony PlayStation Vita handheld games console might feature as a stand-in PS3 controller for a range of games, new reports from a Sony representative have suggested.

Speaking at a recent developers conference R&D manager of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe Phil Rogers revealed the Vita will double as a PS3 accessory.

"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," Rogers said.

He added: "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."

Reports earlier this week suggested that the Sony PlayStation Vita release date is being readied for October 28th after Blockbuster stock materials seemingly leaked the console’s arrival.
