6:38 /

At Gamescom in Cologne, Germany, Sony demos its PS3-Vita cross-controller technology. Owners of both gaming devices can now use their Vita as a second controller for new games on the PlayStation 3.

I'm gonna show on new -- control -- a LittleBigPlanet -- of which launches late. So what they've -- control willful simply -- control as the ability to use the vita as a controller for the PlayStation 3. -- -- -- -- It's killed because as well as popping dual analog sticks a -- -- on the vita. It also comes from the vehicle and importantly. It -- its -- screen so you can -- -- screen gaming. On the PlayStation -- it. Inexplicably product -- Epoch -- not only give you the levels playable by -- control. We also allow you to make -- controlled games yourself. In the panel today -- -- thoughtfully heckling three's life in his latest adventure. Across console is best -- from the big thing even with a between -- And -- Steven from -- for the economy of combat and from for the next great. And -- think of it. But they face the same as this week vivienne Michael -- president. Hamas from -- to play LittleBigPlanet. Apparently. Okay. For now you'll say I'm controlling -- -- on the page that. I can go on until. Using the -- themselves without -- on the PlayStation threat. But more importantly I can use the big -- -- an -- to screen. And I can use all of the -- this functionality. As well. So they -- just looks like a normal -- -- that same place. My -- that if this is just so we would need to go -- it to rescue the princess so let's go. Okay so clearly this -- -- estimates that on if you look at the -- to screen you'll -- we've got some level some areas which are marked as badly. Which I can now jump over them so this -- stuff I've got a unique view of the auction from the vita. Which is -- the single -- but it's really -- in the multi plat. And an arm and I'll talk we've got full play multiplayer with full plays on the PlayStation 3. Problem plan on the beat them. -- Would come from time. And if the place at the plant on the PlayStation -- how the different viewpoints that means they can think things over the place conflict. So when you play multiplayer this opens up lots of game play opportunities. Okay so now I've got that trigger the switch to cap -- this bill which is closed. A PlayStation say I would children dropped off. McLennan county doctors through -- on faith however I can pick up the block -- until -- Live over. Constantly gets -- I have to say -- no sophomores were harmed in the making this demo. Phenomenal left but he's -- -- -- -- just simply says let's talk. They -- its simplest out. Now they sections looks the same as the previous section however would have to be much more careful because. Books. The -- -- electrified. On the shows just how precisely convey. If you end of the day. Used -- the -- pop. On the from. -- -- -- Okay I'm obviously. With a -- lot of things. You can go on until we obviously. Now I've got it got stuff -- think that you'll benefit trumpeted that front of the -- So it looks like a support this powerful into the screen on the bits source is perfect for -- -- just used to -- a touch. Important it is like. Similar -- on the import. Of what forms into this period. And can also use the -- so it's just for. Maven objects that you -- software around. Released today it describe -- -- This makes it really easy and intuitive to play the game and -- of what we always struck that they wouldn't Apple's iPhone. Great. -- off from the princess. But it looks like some kind of proposal for me to work out some good gonna use the pizza for the next race -- -- ground level. They can -- so what. If a local tea this looks like some kind of -- Believe that grade. So let's go over to the princess. I'll import this problem you can throw. Away. From Apple. Great. Great the princess -- Okay so let's go and use this rocket through Skype. No capital fought and it looks like the problem with the rocket -- -- -- princess profligate. So when it jumped on this -- I'm now you'll -- -- or distilled from the PlayStation 3 onto the PlayStation 3. I'm -- than the normal life publicly. Not having an -- discrete. If you're actually not just to connect to viewpoint but it gives you different roles -- different control methods and we think this is really exciting potential. For social statement I'm from local people to play as well. Welcome Ron -- -- drop like the PlayStation 3. -- the crap that's been exposed and used in the gyros. In addition it. There you go afraid the rocket. Which opened the rocket for the princesses and on the rocket blastoff from the -- On for the PlayStation 3 -- And I wanted to space to escape with the princess. So once a day and thought what saves the -- against ago. -- -- -- -- Well. -- -- -- -- -- So this is just a small fraction of that the LC -- a LittleBigPlanet. -- it totally it's just a glimpse of what's possible of course control on PlayStation.
