Sony Computer Entertainment this week released 1.8 firmware for the PlayStation Vita portable game console that adds a number of cross-platform features that will allow PS Vita to act like a controller for the PS3, continue to play select PS3 titles while on the go and play games for the original PlayStation on the portable game console.

The first cross-platform features to be added are cross-play and cross-save, which will allow PS3 and PS Vita users to enjoy match or collaborative game play as well as managing saved data between PS Vita and PS3 (first title to support the tech is Street Fighter X Tekken) to continue playing on the go with their PS Vita, right from where they left off on their PS3 at home. In addition, Sony will add cross-controller technology, which will allow users to control select PS3 format software by using their PS Vita as a controller.

The idea behind the cross-platform capabilities between PlayStation 3 and portable PlayStation Vita is to increase the value of owning multiple PlayStation devices by utilizing cloud technologies as well as specific capabilities of the PS3 and PS Vita.

By installing the system software update version 1.80, users will also be able to enjoy legendary original PlayStation titles on their PS Vita's 5" OLED display. Essentially, Sony removed original PlayStation titles from its PlayStation Mobile platform and added them exclusively to PlayStation Vita.

In addition to video games-related cross-platform features, also multimedia-related cross-platform capabilities will be added.
