Buy Once, Play Anywhere - Sony Expands Cross-Platform Strategy

Sony have announced a cross-platform pricing strategy that's sure to appeal to PlayStation 3 owners who are planning on picking up a Vita when it releases on Thursday. The deal infers a wider strategy of allowing gamers to participate in experiences on either PS3 or PSV without having to buy that content twice. It breaks down like this:

MotorStorm RC, Hustle Kings, Top Darts, WipEout HD and HD Fury DLC for WipEout 2048, and Capcom’s Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 DLC will be able to be purchased on PlayStation Store and you will then be able to play them on both PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita - for one price.

Additionally, Motorstorm RC, Hustle Kings, Top Darts, WipEout HD and HD Fury DLC for WipEout 2048 all offer Cross-Platform Play, which lets gamers face off against each other whether they're on the Vita or a PS3 system.

Good move! It's a pity they can't apply it to their PSP library, but I can understand the headache that could cause

I really like the idea, at this stage I'm not planning on picking up games on both the PS3 and Vita but for people who are it's great.

Also, isn't the Vita releasing on Thursday and not Friday? At least I hope it is and I haven't missed something. :P
