The lights are on
Remote play will apparently be an option for the upcoming
Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, if recent tweets from series creator
Hideo Kojima are to be believed.
Kojima didn't offer any concrete details in his tweets simply offering the three images you see here and and saying, "GZ on Vita today." "So great graphic!," and "Playing on VITA." It's unclear if these images refer to remote play with the PlayStation 3 or 4 version of the game, or both.
Kojima has always been a fan of the idea of playing the same game on both a handheld and a home console, coining the term Transfarring before Sony was using the term cross play. The PSP game Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker was capable of sharing its save with the HD, PlayStation 3 version of the game.
Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, which acts as a prequel of sorts to Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, is coming to PlayStation 3 and 4, and Xbox 360 and One on March 18 at a discounted price.

I think it's fair to say that Kojima was showing the PS4 version, as the compatibility is higher with PS4 than with PS3.
WOW. Just.... WOW. I am impressed.
I agree, the lack of actual buttons in place of the rear touchpad make using the Vita a lack luster experience for the most part. As far as showing off the game playing on Vita, uhm,,, well it's supposed to work on remote play, so what is the point of this whole article?
oh kojima, i love you
I bought a white PS Vita just this past holiday, and I'm loving it. Played the crap out of Uncharted: Golden Abyss and now I'm playing Killzone: Mercenary, which is $9.00 right now for PS+ members.
I feel that the Vita is a much better investment now compared to when it first released. I do like the remote play feature for my PS3 and PS4. I tired remote play with Battlefield 4 multiplayer and I do not recommend it.
The Vita really is pretty darn awesome.
Really interested in Zeroes, can't wait to play. I've been playing MGS since it's original release back in the day, Kojima is always on top of his game.
