The PS3 and Vita are capable of cross-platform gameplay. That means it’s possible for Vita players to engage in multiplayer matches with PS3 players and vice-versa. Certain games also include cross-platform cloud saves. The catch is you may have to purchase the Vita and PS3 versions of these games to benefit from these features. Fortunately, Sony is running a few promotions that will ultimately save you a bit of money.
Sony’s promotion involves Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, WipEout 2048 and Hustle Kings. Basically, if you own these games on one platform, you’ll get something for free on the other. For example, if you own Hustle Kings on PS3, you’ll be able to download the Vita version for free. It also works the other way around.
For Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Sony and Capcom are letting previously-purchased DLC to carry over to both platforms.
Those who own WipEout HD and HD Fury on PS3 will be able to download DLC for WipEout 2048 when it’s released in the spring.
