Does anybody know much about how well these features are going to be implemented? I'm particularly interested in continuation play and the idea of taking my save file on Pro Evo wherever I go. I think if these two features could be nailed the Vita could become a must-buy for PS3 owners.
I am definitely looking forward to that game. It'll likely fall under the 'buy once for both consoles' banner, like with Motorstorm. Last I saw it was "launch window", but nothing's been seen since E3... It's no longer called Ruin, but Warrior's Lair
I have PlayStation Plus. You can get some fairly big discounts for the PS Store, all year. There's also free games, DLC, and the online storage for save games is somewhat useful, although not exactly necessary. You get a selection of full retail games to download for a trial period, as well. I got a year's subscription on offer and it didn't seem /that/ expensive for the content/services/savings I was getting out of it. /shrug
Oh, and I'm pretty sure you don't need Plus for cross-play or whatever it is.
