I don't own a PS3 and have never bought a Crossbuy game either, so I don't have any knowledge about this.
Would this work? Could I give him the disk to play on his PS3 and I just use the PSVita code (I think it's a code) to download directly from the PSN store?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Like Doppel said, the Vita version is added to your account permanently through a one-time process that is done via the PS3.
Potentially though, you could do what you're saying. You would need to sign into your account on your friends PS3, and redeem the Disc Benefits. Then the Vita version would be on your account, and your friend could use the PS3 disc as he wishes.
Hmm. I guess that doesn't seem too hard.
Darn Amazon for having the PS3 version of Sly Cooper on sale at almost the same price as the PSVita version!
Sort of wanting the Vita-only version though since I want the box (seriously, I want the box).
