A couple of reviews of a Japanese unit are out there now. As expected really, the hardware itself is awesome, the OS can be a bit iffy (it certainly isn't attractive IMO) but it is pretty solid overall. I think The Verge review is very balanced.

I still think it'll be touch and go whether this is a great success or just a profitable but average seller for Sony. No one really knows how much of an effect smartphones has had and whether the 'hardcore' handheld gamer audience is big enough to justify Sony and Nintendo spending $100m + on these systems. I myself think there is a market for them, but i can see Sony stiffling the market and shooting themselves in the foot, as usual of late, with expensive software and hardware addons, and a generally expesnsive machine. No matter how much real value there is in.

These Games can be played through your PS Vita via Remote Play to your PS3 and the graphics are amazing, what are your thoughts?

Hackers have customised fipmware 3.55 (the 1 before current firmware) to enable them to play any PS3 game on PS Vita via remote play.

It was reported on eurogamer yesterday

It's an option on your Playstation 3 that enables wireless connection between PS3 & PSP/Vita and it allows you to access your ps3 via the Vita and even play some ps3 games on your vita too
