During their gamescom conference in Germany today, Sony announced a number of titles which will have cross-buy features. This will allow you to purchase the PS3 version of a game and get the Vita version free (and possibly vice-versa). PS All-Stars Battle Royale, along with other exciting titles will support this!

In an absolutely fantastic conference, Sony announced this excellent value deal which allows you access to the VITA version of PS3 games (if cross-buy is supported). The first titles to support this will be Playstation All Stars: Battle Royale, Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time and Ratchet and Clank: Q-Force (a.k.a Full Frontal Assault).

Sony announced that you will be able to cross-play in PS All Stars and save games will be interchangeable in Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, meaning you can play on the PS3 and continue from that save on the Vita (and vice-versa).

Ratchet, Spike, Dante and Sackboy are four new characters coming to PS All Stars this winter!
