Sony has announced that from the PS Vita launch on February 22nd, certain titles will be available for cross-platform play.
The titles that will be available are MotorStorm RC, Hustle Kings, Top Darts, WipEout HD and HD Fury DLC for WipEout 2048 and Capcom’s, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. These can be purchased through the PlayStation Store and will all include the innovative features you need in order to play them on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita for one price.
If you already own any of the above titles on the PlayStation 3 already, you’ll be able to download the same content to your PS Vita for free and vice versa. This, of course, means there is no need to pay for the same content twice and highlights the importance of the relationship between the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita.
If that wasn’t enough, Motorstorm RC, Hustle Kings Top Darts and WipEout HD and HD Fury DLC for WipEout 2048 will all offer cross-platform play allowing you to compete with other gamers online regardless of which system you are playing it on.
