Jim Ryan, Sony Computer Entertainment CEO for Europe, recently announced at Gamescom that customers who buy select first-party Sony exclusives (either digital or physical copies) for the PS3 console will also be able to redeem a digital copy of their game for the PS Vita platform as well! The first cross buy games announced at Gamescom were PlayStation All-Stars, Ratchet & Clank Q-Force and Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time – All very anticipated titles.
Consumers want to interact with their content at any time, across any number of devices,” said Ryan. “The game experience is no longer an individual pastime. It’s an always-on, highly connected form of entertainment.
In addition to the Cross-Buy program, Sony also unveiled the all new PlayStation Plus subscription for the PS Vita as well, as well as announcing that PSOne games will hit the PS Vita store soon. All very good moves from Sony, and very good news for VITA and PS3 owners!
