Crossbuy is not what i thought it was..

13 replies 362 views Edited Feb 23, 2013

So i finnaly tried to use my crossbuy with this game today because my friend got a Vita and i wanted to give him the game so we could play with each other.. but after downloaded the vita stuff, and trying to copy it to his Vita, it gives us a message saying the stuff belongs to another PSN account...

 

So basically crossbuy is only meant for you only, if you own a vita then you can get the game for free, but no one else... cause we cant even log my account into his vita, it only lets his PSN logged into his vita... You guys probably knew this from day 1 though haha. I just thought it was kinda dumb.

That's how it was meant to be. Not "Buy a game and give it to your friends at no extra cost" although you can sign into his PSN id on your PS3 to possibly copy it over. I'm not sure about that last bit though.

You would have been able to do this if you hadn't set the disk benefits to your account. If you had set it to your friends account, he'd have been able to download the game and you'd still be able to play the PS3 version. Unfortunately I don't think you can undo the process, so your friend will just have to pay for the game now.

But then the online pass and DLC would be linked to his friend's account

Actually, it gives you the Vitas online pass aswell as the game, on the account you redeem the disc benefits, so basically you can give the Vita version of the game away aslong as you redeem the disc benefits on the friends account.

It amazes me just how dumb some people can be. Of course they don't want people to get an extra game for free. >__>

I got R&C FFA and I knew we'd be getting Ratchet Deadlocked, but this is the first I'm hearing about Motorstorm
