PS3 + PSVita help.

[ Edited ]
9 replies 249 views Edited Jan 4, 2013

Hiya guys, new here, anyways down to business! ; )

 

I was thinking of buying a Vita and was wondering if I can download things for my PS3 on there?

 

Things like games, the downloadable content you get with PS3 games and transfer them from my Vita for use on my PS3 etc?

 

I can't get a fast enough connection to use PSN on my PS3 so I was wondering if I could do all the stuff I need for my PS3 on my Vita if I get one? 

 

Many thanks to any and all who help. : D

 

Also Happy New Year!!!

You cannot transfer PS3 content to the Vita

You CAN transfer Vita content from the PS3 to the Vita.    Just download the DLC and/or the game, and then transfer it from Content Manager.   Save files on PSP/PS1 also work the same way.

 

If you have a 3G Vita, as well as DataConnect Pass, you cannot download anything over 20MB from one file, off the 3G connection.

Thanks, not exactly what I was after but it is a huge help, all info is valuable lol. : ) 

 

I was wondering if you can download and transfer PS3 content from the Vita to the PS3... If that makes any sense.

Like what Bshock said, you cannot transfer PS3 content to your ps vita. Essentially, you cannot store a game on your ps vita and carry it around with you. This content would not even be able to be accessed on your vita unless it was a cross play title. The only reason you would even want ps3 content on your vita would be to use it as a flashdrive for whatever reason. 

 

tldr: PS3 content can't be transfered unless cross play

*correct me if I'm wrong

The only thing you can back up that I know of, are save files that are NOT Copy Protected(Dark Souls, most THQ and EA games fall under this category), music, and video, the latter two are transferrable.

 

But as far as applications and games go, sadly that's a big fat no.    You can't even stash it away on a hard drive.

 

The Vita however, you can back up applications and games onto the PS3 and PC.

You can't download PS3 content on the Vita... You can only download content that is compatible with the Vita!

Hopefully, the USA gets a better version of what EU had,

http://exophase.com/46110/browser-driven-playstation-store-launches-for-europe/

^ That only buys games and queues them on PS3. Hopefully (in the future), there will be a US version that you can dl games to pc to than transfer to vita/ps3.
