    Hey Guys,
    Just thought I'd see if anyone could point out any flaws with my cross-buy theory...

    So, what if I bought the ps3 version of sony smash bros Playstation All-Stars, for lets say.. £35,

    Surely I could then redeem the vita code, and trade in the game, (brand new title, day after release.. I'd guess at maybe £20?)

    That way, Youve basically got a full Vita game, for around £15?

    Anyone noticing any flaws?
    surely SONY would realise this?

    It's still unknown exactly how this will work. It may even be digital only or the downloads are tied to a single PSN account.

    Surely Sony wouldn't allow such an obvious loophole.

    I guess it will be digitally only since they've done it with more digital only titles.(Hustler Kings, etc.)

    But I must agree with Guild on this point.

    From what I understood you are going to be able to buy the retail copy at say gamestop, and then you get a code for the digital copy of the vita. I'm loving this cross buy idea though. I'm getting playstation all stars and sly cooper for sure.

    They could include both the cd and vita card in the retail version you know :)

    People did that for Portal 2.
    Bought PS3 version at launch, activated the PC version, then traded it in. Getting the game for essentially $15~ on the superior platform.

    Depends how it works.
