Since the Vita launched, my favourite thing in the whole world has been games which you buy once and can use on Vita and PS3. That’s my favourite thing in the whole world. I love it. It’s better than puppies chasing laser pointers on a fluffy carpet – my previous favourite thing.
Anyway, Sony has seen fit to show off another of these cross-play beauties, realeasing on April 10th. The Pinball Arcade is going to let you play smooth, 60fps pinball using your Vita’s front and rear touch surfaces or your PS3’s lovely old DualShock 3 controller if you would rather see it on a boring old TV screen.
It starts off with four tables for $9.99, although DLC is assured with two tables initially available for around $4.99. FarSight are well respected virtual pinball developers with a good pedigree so you can be sure that they’ll get the physics and feel of pinball nailed down for this.
Also, if you’re a trophy hunter, it’ll have two silvers and a bronze for each table – and you will be able to earn them twice – once on the Vita and once on the PS3.
