If I wasn't so poor and had money to blow then I would get one. Getting the Vita version free is a good idea.

Still questions to be answered. Like: Physical PS3 copy and digital Vita copy? Or both digital copies? Would like to know what Sony is planning for distribution of these games.

I would bet on digital only. There's no way to control such thing with physical copies I guess, people would cheat.

@ Pirate Thom

I think that's what GynGa was trying to say. If you buy the PS3 version digitally or physically you'll get a voucher to download the Vita version for free.

I think @MattyF was asking can you buy the PS3 retail copy, and get the Vita retail copy as well, thus @GynGa saying "There's no way to control such thing with physical copies I guess, people would cheat."

But anywho. It's a great idea, I too said they should do this, but I didn't expect it to be free. The only problem is that now you'll have no choice but to upgrade to that overpriced 32GB Memory Card ($100) to benefit from all these games. But even then it's a pretty fair trade-off, and will lead the way to ushering in the age of all digital.

If your mem card isn't full enough. You can temporarily backup your other "games" on the PS3/PC until you can get a better storage space for the Vita.

That's true, but personally I'm one of those people who wants it all, all the time......That sounds kind of kinky :D

I love that Sony does this

First we can get Blu-ray movies with DVDs and digital copies

and now we get Vita games with PS3 games
