Cross buying on ps vita

6 replies 164 views Edited Oct 29, 2013

So i have a bone to pick with sony. Why does cross buy only work in one direction? it should atleast be stated when buying a game on psn from the cross buy section on a vita that "this game will only work for the vita" or something along those lines.. or even better, allow the people who bought cross buy games on the vita to pay the difference for the ps3 title so that you can have both copies... if its a cross buy game, the game really shouldnt have different prices... (just bought Playstation all-stars on the vita thinking I would get the ps3 version as well... now im stuck with just the vita version....)

It works both ways, but not for disc-based games.

Cross buy doesn't work in one direction. It goes on a case by case basis. For example, Lone Survivor can be purchased on PS3 or Vita and you will own both copies. Retail titles like All-Stars and Sly Cooper: Theives in Time only work on way (PS3 -> Vita). All-Stars was never advertised as "buy  the Vita version, get the other free."

I apologize, I didn't realize the Vita version was listed as a Cross Buy title on the Vita store. That is a huge oversight :/. You should contact Sony and see about getting a refund.

I think they should fix that or make it more clear or something. I bought PS All Stars and own both obviously but when you buy a game on Vita you dont get the PS3 version. Obviosly it has to do with the money because Vita games are only 40 bucks and PS3 and PS4 60 bucks so.

at the moment, the ps3 version is $40 and the vita version is $35. imo the could have made them both $40 while actually being a "cross buy" game... (on the other hand, not everyone who owns a vita owns a ps3 as well)
