Sony’s Cross Buy Promotion Gives Out Free Vita Versions of Games Bought for PS3

Posted Tue Aug 14, 2012 at 12:30 PM PDT by Dick Ward

‘PlayStation All-Stars,’ ‘Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time,’ and ‘Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault’ all qualify for the new promotion.

This is the sort of deal that just seems natural. Sony has announced a new program that will give people that buy PS3 games free Vita copies of the same game. The Cross Buy promotion currently applies to ‘PlayStation All-Stars,’ ‘Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time,’ and ‘Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault’ with no other games being announced at this time.

There’s no information yet on how these games will be doled out, but you can expect them to be linked to your PlayStation network account. We’re going to go ahead and assume that Sony doesn’t want you reselling the stuff you get for free.

Speculation on this promotion initially was that only PlayStation Plus members would benefit, but during Sony’s press conference, a membership requirement was not mentioned.
