Hopefully a feature that will now become the standard for all games that appear on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita, Sony has announced a “Cross Buy” initiative that will kick in for three upcoming titles scheduled for launches this fall.
In similar fashion to recent titles like Foosball 2012 and Sound Shapes, games supporting Cross Buy will provide the consumer with both versions for the price of one, thus promoting the further growth of cross-play and cross-save functionality between platforms.
This two-platforms-in-one scheme will be available when Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault, Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time and PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale go on sale later in the year. Digital vouchers for the Vita versions will be provided with new copies purchased for PS3. (Or if games are purchased digitally, they’ll be downloadable across both systems.)
And yes, if you didn’t catch it, Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault is coming to the Vita. Previously it had only been announced for PS3. Score!
