thought this video was pretty good... they pretty much discuss what's going on and what we know... but a lot of points they make are just really spot on.
Here's the video!

lol really? im at work too which is why i post a video instead of bulletting it out... people like a source... i'd rather provide them that than quotes and bullets... if you can't watch it now... just watch it later at home... or bring your vita to work (or if you have a phone) and watch it on your bathroom break?

I watched this earlier and didn't learn anything about cross buy, from their conversation.
Go to about the 9 minute mark to hear what they have to say about cross buy. It's less then a minute.
However, if you don't have time. They basically say, they don't know if any of this is true and we'll have to wait as usually until closer to time of first release.
They say about the hard copy having a code, that they believe you can buy the Vita version and then get the PS3 version free. Which makes no sense if the PS3 version costs more. Not sure how they will handle someone buying a hardcopy, downloading the other version and then the person returning the hardcopy. Person would still have the digital version unless they have some way to shut down your digital version. It'll be interesting to see how they combat this.
That if you buy a digital copy off the PSN, that you can get the other version digitally. This makes the most sense, as you wouldn't be able to try and sell the free version back to the store. Thereby getting whatever copy you have left for free. That and Sony would make money off people having to upgrade their Vita memory cards to make room for more digital copies.
Everything they say is taken from what been said by other media trying to understand. Nothing they said has been confirmed.
Parts in orange above are my opinion. Peace and good gaming.

lol they say a lot more than just a minute... from about 9 - 17mins it's talk on Vita, specifically on cross-buy may only be about 3 mins of it...but the general discussion on vita... especially when they talk about ACIII... i thought was pretty good.

Sorry I was going by the thread title, "Watch this IGN Video on Cross Buy." lol. Yes there is more talk about Vita games and possible bundles.

im going buy the ps3 version of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale with a free VITA code and then return it.
i'll see if the VITA copy work after i return the ps3 hardcopy, but i dont SONY is that stupid to let people get games for free.
