Announced during Sony's Gamescom conference last night, PlayStation Cross Buy will allow players to buy a game on PS3 and download the Vita version free of charge.
"We're taking it under consideration," an EA spokesperson told IGN, "but we have no specific plans to announce at this time."

Cross Buy kicks off later this year with Sony's PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault and Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time.

I'm considering making a preorder soon as they announce this. No really, if they officially announce this, then they'll have another preorder. I'm waiting to preorder until then.

EA may use Sony's Cross Buy System. EA already has their own Cloud Base save system in place for Need for Speed Most Wanted called "CloudCompete".

The open-world car game will feature CloudCompete, a system that keeps track of your stats in the game across platforms, so that race you won on the bus while playing your Vita will count when you log into your PS3. Cool!

Need for Speed Most Wanted will also feature all cars from the game, open from the start. So no grinding to earn that Bugatti. If you find it, you can drive it, right out of the box.

I was just going to get the PS3 version but now I will also buy the PS Vita version if EA doesn't consider the Cross Buy System.

I've said it else where and I'll say it again here, if EA actually jumps on board with it for this game the odds of my buying DLC will rise significantly. Sony should be doing whatever it takes to make it happen. I however won't not pay full price for two copies of the same game.

I've actually been more interested in the Vita version of this game simply because I want a quality racing game on the Vita (At least I hope it turns out well) and didn't see any reason to buy both. If they announce cross buy I will definitely jump on the PS3 version and enjoy both...I just wish they would release more videos, etc. of just the Vita version. I don't want to pre-order it and then when it comes out it only looks as good as that $20 racer that released alongside the Vita.

I know one thing Need for Speed Most Wanted for the Ps Vita will be better than Riiidddge Racerrrr for the PS Vita. LOL

I pre-ordered both the PS3 and PS Vita version. I also pre-ordered the PS Vita Assassin's Creed III Bundle all from I sold my PS Vita First Edition Bundle then brought Amazon gift cards and applied them to the my pre-order.
