Opinion: Will Sony's Cross Buy PlayStation Initiative Come to U.S.?

FORBES: As someone rooting for Sony’s PS Vita, I and other websites want to believe Cross Buy won’t stay isolated to Europe; this is an initiative that will foster goodwill among Sony faithful and drive Vita hardware sales. Sadly, this is the part where I serve up some painful reminders.

FWIW, they also use the phrasing "promotional pricing." No where in this blog post do they reference the Cross Buy initiative.

Did you read the whole thing?

" If you buy the PS3 version of Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time (through traditional retailers or via PlayStation Network), you will be able to download the PS Vita version of Thieves in Time from PSN at no additional cost. That’s a pretty awesome deal!"

For easy reading, scroll to the comments and read the comments marked in red. Hard to miss, and those alone reference cross buy....

People really dont pay attention it was even said on the PlayStation Blogcast, damn this gen some gamers and media are clueless

It's Forbes - they were a tad late to the video game industry. Their analysts, in almost every scenario, don't know what they're talking about.

They detail cross-play features -- they don't say it's part of the Cross Buy initiative in the US. These are two different things.

Cross-play: Cross platform features across both games.
Cross-Buy: Buy the PS3 version, get the Vita version free.

It's literally on PlayStation's United States blog, right on that link provided. How obvious do you want it to be? Either you're trolling for hits, or you're truly incapable of comprehending the simplest of things.

I don't agree with Rockefellow's attack.

BUT....he's right. There are NUMEROUS blog posts by various different developers all over the North America Playstation Blog with each of them talking in detail of how cross buy is coming to the North American game releases.

Well, I suppose I didn't need to be such a jerk, but he seemed so adamant about defending his post, he defied something that was common knowledge and readily apparent with a few second's research.

If it doesn't this would be a huge mistake by Sony

doctorstrange1772d ago

Sony have confirmed it is coming, don't worry guys.

Sony will probably announce it at Pax officialy for the US. If it isnt the rage will be over 9000.
