PlayStation Mobile runs homebrew Left 4 Dead app on Vita

Gaming is in its golden age, and big and small players alike are maneuvering like kings and queens in A Game of Thrones. Register now for our GamesBeat 2015 event, Oct. 12-Oct.13, where we'll explore strategies in the new world of gaming.

Left 4 Dead

In an awesome demonstration of gamer creativity, a PlayStation Vita user utilizes the PlayStation Mobile tool suite in a custom app powering the PC version of Left 4 Dead.

The below video by “digitalarts001″ showcases Valve’s zombie-filled first-person shooter on the handheld, complete with motion controls for the camera.

The feat evidently utilizes the PlayStation Mobile to remotely connect to a desktop computer over a local network and access its games.

Currently in open beta, PlayStation Mobile offers a software framework for developers releasing PlayStation content on supported, PlayStation Certified devices. Only Android platforms and the Vita carry this certification so far, but if a single user can pull off these impressive results, full-fledged developers shouldn’t shy away from considering similar cross-platform experiences in their products.
