Sony Computer Entertainment has talked a lot about the upcoming PlayStation cloud service that will launch in North America next year, allowing gamers to stream PS3 games to PS4, PS Vita and PS Vita TV. But how does it work on the small PS Vita? Amazingly well, according to Sony Computer Entertainment Japan and Asia Senior Vice President Hiroshi Ueda, as he told 4Gamer in an interview.

It is a very good service (laughs). I actually saw the prototype, and you can play PS3 games on the PS Vita comfortably, without any problems. It’s really amazing. I was impressed by its technical capabilities.

Personally, I’m ready to be amazed as well. If PS3 games streamed to the Vita via the cloud look half as good as PS4 ones played via remote play, we definitely have a lovely feature there. Now, if only there was a way to claim the PS3 games we already own in order to play them via the cloud without having to pay for them twice…I know, a man can dream, can’t he?
