From 22nd February, MotorStorm RC, Hustle Kings, Top Darts, WipEout HD and HD Fury DLC for WipEout 2048, and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 DLC, can be purchased on the PlayStation Store and can be played on both PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita (PS Vita) for one price.
If you already own the title on PS3, you can download the same content to PS Vita for free, and vice versa. Each of the games also supports cross-platform play, which allows users to compete with players regardless of which system they are playing on.
With the smartphone and tablet market booming in recent years and ushering in a new crowd of casual gamers, it seems like an odd time to release a dedicated handheld gaming device for the hardcore. Nevertheless, PS Vita does boast some impressive specifications and a very strong launch line-up of games.
We’ll have a review of Sony’s new handheld early next week.
