Cross-Play Help

10 replies 220 views Edited Dec 30, 2012
Hey guys,

My brother is picking up a vita today with allstars, and I noticed the PS3 version is as much as the vita version (are sales really that bad?). Anyways, my other brother has a PS3 and would like to have the PS3 copy of it.

I know you can't put the cross play code on another account, but is there any other way both of my brothers can play this game with me? Maybe play on the same PSN? Would that work online?

Thanks guys

Use the PS3 disc while signed in on the brother that wants the Vita copy's account, redeem the Vita version onto it, then your other brother can simply redeem the online pass and enjoy the game using the PS3 disc.

Then once the Vita version has finished downloading, all of you launch the game up I your respective devices, one of you invite the other two and game on.

Oh and the games on sale currently, so are games like Far Cry 3 & Assassins Creed 3 etc. Just a tactic to push more copies during the holidays.

So I got the vita copy and the online pass on the vita perfectly, just had to entire the stuff in on the PS3. My brother downloaded the vita copy and gave me the disc to take to my other brother's house.

I set up my brothers (PS Vita bro) PSN account on the PS3 and redownloaded the online pass.

I haven't tried it out yet, but is there any way both of my brothers can play online with me? I have my own PSN but they would be on the same PSN account.

Thanks.

Glad to know it worked out fine - I am not sure whether two people on the same PSN account can play together unfortunatly (unless playing locally via the same TV), does your brother (using the PS3) not have a seperate PSN account to play on ?

He does have another account he could play on, but no online pass. Is the online pass bound by PS3 or PSN?

The online pass is downloaded on the PS3, but on the other brother's (Vita) account.

BTW nice promoting he purchased ACIII

If the online pass is downloaded to the PS3, then online features will be unlocked for all accounts on that PS3 so it should be fine. You're brother using the Vita on the other hand will have to use the account used to download the online pass & game onto the Vita.

Glad more people are getting the chance to play AC3, hope he enjoys it Smiley Happy

Thanks for the help! I have one problem with the PS3 version though that maybe you could fix.

Here's a video of the problem: The screen keeps flashing and blinking, which is super annoying. Has anyone else had this problem? If so, how do I fix it?
