Sony advertises the PS3 / PS Vita cross-play compatibility as a key feature of certain games, including upcoming title PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, and recently released When Vikings Attack, but the feature is far from perfect. The PS3 and PS Vita systems are quite different and run different operating systems, which means not everything works as it should.
Although rumored for a while, Sony confirmed at their E3 Press Conference that All-Stars Battle Royale is heading to the PlayStation Vita, as well as PS3. The game will feature full cross-play support, which was demonstrated live on the conference floor, showing 2 Vita players against two PS3 players.
A new game, When Vikings Attack, has been announced for the PS3 and PS Vita. In this all-action fighting adventure, a battalion of Viking invaders, 1200 years late to the party, are causing havoc in your town. Imagine getting together a posse of local citizens, then ripping up a phone booth or picking up a car, and hurling it at the advancing Viking hordes.
A new video showing off the PS3 to PS Vita cross-platform gameplay and features of Foosball 2012 has been released. First of all, when you buy Foosball 2012, you’ll get it for both the PS3 and PS Vita for a price of a single PSN game. The same applies for DLC content that you will be able to buy.
As launch day for the PlayStation Vita approaches, Sony has announced another deal to entice users to splash out on the new portable console. The latest initiative from Sony promotes the cross-play compatibility between the PS3 and PS Vita, and gives gamers a chance to own both versions of the game for one price.
