Sony Computer Entertainment may well introduce a firmware update during the life cycle of its new hand-held, PlayStation Vita, which will allow the streaming of all PS3 games over a Wi-Fi connection, claims Eurogamer.

The gaming website doesn’t cite its source, but states that streamed games will be outputted on Vita’s screen at 480p and developers will be able work to that resolution so their games are fully Vita compatible to make the most out of the smaller display.

Uncharted 3 on PS Vita?

Due to launch in February, Sony revealed more details about Vita earlier this week, confirming the full launch line-up and discussing its social-networking capabilities while revealing the next stage of its augmented reality gaming push.

Vodaphone was recently announced as the “preferred provider” of 3G connectivity for PS Vita , though gamers can buy a unlocked model and choose their own service provider. The hand-held gaming device is set to roll-out in Europe and North America from February 22, 2012.

Would the ability to stream PS3 games through the hand-held tempt you to pick Vita up at launch? Let us know in the forums.

I hope they do it this time. And not even with a firmware update, should be doing it out of the box!!
