Which games? The PS Blog says LBP2 is the first game to utilize this feature.

Cross Play = Play against PS3 gamers on the Vita or vice versa.
Cross Buy = Get a digital copy of the Vita version with PS3 version purchase.
Cross Controller = 2 screen gameplay similar to Wii U gamepad.

I think your getting it mixed up with Cross Play. Cross Controller was just recently announced.

Edit: I also forgot Cross Save which allows you use the same save file on both systems stored in the cloud.

He's wrong, there isn't a single PS3/Vita game currently out that makes use of both screens for gameplay at the same time.

Up until today, there were only two games that I knew of that were going to support cross-controller and they were Guacamelee and the new Sly Cooper. So this LBP2 news is a pleasant surprise.

This is actually the first time I've ever heard of cross-controller support, so knowing that there are a few games ready to support it is pretty cool!

I think he's referring to remote play and games like God of War where you can play the PS3 game via the Vita. Now that I see these options, Sony really does have quite a few irons in the fire with Vita and PS3 cross-compatibility. Let's hope they can convince 3rd parties to utilize it and not make it an afterthought.

booo on them though for charging $5 for it instead of using it as a free marketing tool for the Vita second screen experience. I'm sure they're sick to death of giving stuff away, but if everyone thinks the next gen fight will be partially based on the second screen better to start now than too late.

If it's like all of the other big DLC for LBP games, you don't need to pay for the DLC to play the community levels using the new stuff. You do get the Media Molecule-made levels and the tools to make levels with the new features yourself, but it doesn't cost anything to check them out with what the users have made with it. That's how it's worked with all of the other DLC that has added big new things to the way levels are made (paint gun, water, Move controls, and probably Vita support).

That's sort of what this is saying, but it's not worded very well at all.

I'm currently building a Wiki Thread for the PS3 forum where we can document retail save compatability with PSN versions of those games, which is a lot more involving than I thought at first since there could be more SKUs than just the normal release that could all be different versions as far as saves are concerned. I'll post a link when it's ready, but this will be an interesting list to see how it evolves over time.

Why not?

I always find these comments especially interesting when they come from someone who doesn't have many trophies.

I agree.

I rather the game not have pointless tasks or filling a list to give a platinum.

so admiralvic is one of 7 people who has platted lost planet 2. and one of 4 people with 100% on spelunker hd. respect him even more


guys, you are talking to admiralvic about trophy acquisition, he is the exception.

With the prices of memory cards, I'm going physical for the foreseeable future. It also allows the chance for re-sale.

I'm interested in what the price of Lumines might be and I wonder if the price drop on Doctor Who includes the Vita version.

I hate that. I don't think I have a single platinum yet. I just get frustrated with tacked on objectives that only seem to be there so I spend another 200 hours playing a game I've already beat. That's just not going to happen....

I'm definitely on the other side of this. I really like trophies (I have over 2,000 plus another 4,000 Xbox Achievements) but I'm definitely not a completionist (only 8 plats, completion rate in the 40% range). As such, I prefer when a game has a platinum and a full trophy list. Even if I only 50% a game with a full trophy list, I'll end up with like 20 bronze and a couple silver, whereas a game like Lumines I'd probably only end up with 5-7 trophies from. For a $40 game, that's really a low amount of trophies to take away from it.

    Never enough RPG's!!

  • CAGiversary!

Posted 14 December 2012 - 06:14 AM

I would have more platinum's, but tend to try to filter through my backlog and get multiplayer stuff done on them. So I have quite a few I just have single player stuff to finish. Games having a platinum or the usual 12-14 trophies on PSN games have never bothered me. Developers decide what they want to put on there game. I just enjoy the challenges, but will never succumb to playing games just to boost my trophy count or PSN level. Every game I have bought have been ones I have wanted to play.

Everyone has there own reasons to like or dislike trophies. I just mind my own business, play the games, and enjoy the hobby.

My trophy card should show that I absolutely love trophies and I try to be a completionist, I just don't see how that should affect the price of the game.

But then again, I guess it helps that I don't really care about overall number of trophies and give more precedence to platinums and hard trophies. A 100% in Lumines is worth more to me than say a Sly 2 platinum (which I'm currently working on).

I think this has to do with perceived value, since it implies it has more content. Many people hear no platinum (for a retail title, which is rare) and assume that the game doesn't have a whole lot to see / do, thus they believe it is worth less.

^ thats what I believe, though like I already said, I rather they keep it simple and not make a ton of overly easy or incredibly complex tasks to justify the platinum.
