Retro City Rampage supports FREE PS3/Vita cross-play

0

Retro City Rampage will support cross-play between the PS3 and PlayStation Vita versions, which is certainly neat. Even neater, however, is the fact that when you buy it on one platform, you'll get it on the other. One payment, both versions. Double neat!

The news comes by way of IndieGames.com, where a number of developers, such as Clever Beans' Martin Turton, espoused the benefits of the "pay once" cross-play deal. 

"We think that the appeal of the 'buy-once' deal, which should hopefully attract more people to buy the game, far outweighs any extra sales we might get from people who are prepared to buy the game twice," Said Turton, "especially considering that requiring two separate purchases would be likely to cause a fair backlash. Basically, we want to price the game in a way that would attract us to buy it ourselves."

As I've said before, this is something I feel Sony needs to do in order to provide the Wii U competition it's hoping for. Only the obsessed or the foolish could want to pay twice for the same game, and if that's what Sony wants, cross-play will be largely useless. Hopefully, Retro City Rampage will lead the way.
