Have Sony confirmed how Cross Play is going to work at all? Reason I ask is that I've got All Stars and Ratchet and Clank Q Force (both Cross Buy) on Pre-Order on PS3 but am going to be out of the country for a month between mid November and Xmas so will miss the retail release dates of both titles.|
I'd love to download and play them on the Vita in absence of my PS3 so my question is does the PS3 box come with a download code for the Vita on say a physical sheet of paper in the box (one which my partner could read to me over the phone), or would you have to put the PS3 disk into a PS3 to authenticate and download it via your PSN account to the Vita from there (something most likely too complex for her to grasp)?

Short answer: I don't think anyone will know for sure until Battle Royale comes out in 2 weeks (Obviously buying on PSN should net you both versions but you'll get the full force of the RRP)
A download code would possibly be more likely as that means 2nd-hand buyers don't get the free game. If Sony really wants people to get into the whole cross-buy thing, they'd have to have some way of redeeming the cross-buy version in the software - but that just fuels the 2nd hand market when Sony/publishers are trying to fight it.
