PS3 & PS Vita Cross Buy

PlayStations All-Stars Battle Royale will be the first title in the scheme with Sly Cooper: Thieves In Time and Ratchet & Clank QForce (which was also announced for Vita as a result) lined up in the wings. It’s not been made clear yet weather how the scheme will work. Presumably the the PS3 version will come with a code or the Blu-ray will unlock the PS Vita content.

PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale release date was recently pushed back a month.
