I think the Speed Points only cross between the PS3 and Vita versions if I recall correctly. The article might have been wrong though.
Right, now I'm seriously pissed off... They're going to swap back the game access to an Origin ID I've never used before, which will mean I have no cross-platform access to the Speed Points between Vita and Xbox 360.
Hopefully they'll be able to actually get me online but, at the moment, it seems some magical corruption has occurred on EA's servers and I may not have any online access at all.
Went to fire it up and the Vita needs charging. /sigh
