Well, it looks like Europe won’t be the only region of the world to get the ‘Cross Buy’ promotion that Sony had recently revealed at Gamescom. Sony Computer Entertainment, president of Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida made a post on Twitter to clarify that the PlayStation 3/Vita promo is also headed to the United States. Japan, however, isn’t so lucky, at least not yet. ” PS Vita-PS3 Cross Buy price promo is coming to both Europe and North America. My quote by Famitsu was meant as ‘not decided for Japan yet,’” Yoshida said. The official tweet reads:

The first game that will be used for the promotion will be Playstation All-Stars: Battle Royal and if you buy either version of the game, you get the other version for free. A variety of other upcoming first-party Sony games also support the promotion. This is just the first game to do this as many other first party Sony developers games will have have the cross buy promotion. You could compare Sony’s cross buy idea to Kojima’s transfarring system that they used for the previous re-releases of Metal Gear Solid one through three and also Peace Walker.
