Earlier today, a couple updates went live for two PS3 games, the God of War collection and the Ico/Shadow of the Colossus collection, that enable the remote play feature on the PlayStation Vita to handle these games. This means people that own those two games for PS3 can now stream them to their Vitas via the aforementioned Remote Play feature.
For those wondering about L2 and R2 inputs, those can be mapped to the rear touchpad, which, in my opinion, is a good way to map them. Maybe we’ll see even more titles that use it in the future? Would you be more inclined to pick up a Vita if more software supported this feature?

Via Twitter, Bethesda announced that the next Skyrim patch (Patch 1.4), available this month, will address the PS3 framerate issue that has been bugging PS3 users since the 2011 game of the year winner was released a few months back.
Its about time, I say …
What’s the deal with Bethesda’s latest adventure, Skyrim? Well, aside from the fact that it is awesomely addictive, Skyrim is suffering from a PlayStation 3 “only” unresolved lag issue that is compromising the experience for many PS3 owners. Although I haven’t started playing Skyrim, I am a bit afraid that by the time I will hit the 60 Hours mark, I will reach the pinnacle of my adventure.
Apparently, there have been many speculations regarding the origin of the problem and the correct methods to resolve it. Patch 1.2 was released by Bethesda to resolve some issues, including the lag problem, however, the problem still persists. According to many users, not only did Patch 1.2 not fix the issue, but also made things worse, as they are now experiencing more issues, including the infamous flying backward dragon glitch.
