Sony encouraging cross-platform play on PS3 and Vita

Future PlayStation games can be packaged for both Vita and PS3, with cloud data allowing customers to access a game from either device, a senior Sony executive has said.

Shuhei Yoshida, chief of Sony Worldwide Studios, told Eurogamer that it was “totally feasible” for developers to build a connected experience between PS Vita and PS3 editions of the same game.

“One of the games we're making, called Ruin, we are developing both the Vita version and the PS3 version of that title. Both games will be packaged together,” he said.

“You can play the game at home on PS3, save your data on our PSN server on the cloud, and you can continue playing the game on PS Vita by downloading the save from the PSN. And you can do vice versa. It's a continuous experience, playing the same game on PS Vita and PS3.”
