Reports of a PS3 firmware update which will provide catch-all support for Remote Play on PS Vita are inaccurate, Sony has said.

Speaking to freelance journalist Munechika Nishida conducting an interview for an Impress Watch article, Sony Computer Entertainment senior VP Yoshio Matsumoto said: "That information is mistaken. The compatibility is achieved on the side of the PS3 game, just like normal."

This was backed up by Division 2 Software Development Head Muneki Shimada, who added that as with existing Remote Play, game will need API support to work.

PS Vita will launch in Japan on December 17, and in Europe and the US on February 22, 2012.
