66w ago - Sony Manager James Gallagher has made available a video today which dives inside PlayStation Vita, demonstrating PS Vita cross play with the PS3 entertainment system.
To quote: One of the standout aspects of PlayStation Vita is the way it interacts with your PS3, whether that's PS Vita and PS3 players competing on the same track in WipEout 2048, or starting a game of MotorStorm RC at home and then picking up where you left off on the bus to work.

67w ago - Game Director Paul Rustchynsky has posted up a video run-through on the competitive online play in MotorStorm RC for both PS3 and PS Vita today.
To quote: MotorStorm RC is a few short weeks away and already the competitive online cross-play at its heart is igniting intense rivalries.
