Remote Play Coming to a Sony VAIO P Near You

May 11, 2010 Written by Paulmichael Contreras

Sony mentioned its intent to expand the PlayStation Network to other devices at last year’s E3. It looks like part of that plan will arrive this summer with the announcement of a hardware/software update to the “Lifestyle PC,” otherwise known as the VAIO P.

Available for pre-order now and shipping sometime in June, this netbook sports an 8-inch LED backlit screen with an extra-wide 1600×768 resolution. So it has a resolution high enough to potentially display your PS3 in 720p. What makes this news particularly exciting is the fact that a Remote Play client exists for a computer. Assuming this application runs in Windows, could an official client be on its way? The Sony VAIO P starts at $799.
