You need to own a copy for each system. Most games will require you to buy each copy separately. But there are a couple titles that give you both versions with a single purchase (Hussle Kings for example)

CrossPlay isnt just one thing. It just indicates that there is some form of interaction between a PS3 version of the game and a Vita version.

To be labled as cross play the game must have ONE of the following features but is not required to have them all:

  • Ability to play multiplayer games across the 2 platforms (Vita players Vs PS3 players)
  • Ability to share save file between Vita and PS3 version of the game
  • Ability to use same DLC between Vita version and PS3 Version of a game

Hope this helps

you dont need to own both versions for example if you get Wipeout 2048 you can play against Wipeout HD ps3 players without owning the ps3 version, i think the same could be said about Hustle Kings, you dont need to own the ps3 version in order to play against ps3 players

Maybe he should have said each person playing can own either version of the game, either for the PS3 or for the PSVita.

Motorstorm I believe allows shared saves, ghost laps and leaderboard information between the PS3 and PSVita version. I do not know about Unit13, I did not think it had cross play mode as there is not a PS3 version.

For your last question, each person playing needs a version for their respective console. If you have both a PS3 and a PSvita then you will need two copies, if you have a PSVita and want to crossplay with someone who has a PS3 then you will need a PSVita version and they will need a PS3 version. The game is only coded to running on one machine or the other, but they have data exchange compatibilty.

If you want to share save data between your PS3 game and a Vita then yes you do have to own both versions of the game.

and if someone wanted to play on their PS3 and their Vita they would have to own both copies.
