Final box art shared, pre-order bonuses announced.

Sly Cooper: Thieves In Time, the fourth entry in Sony’s hit Sly Cooper platforming series, will launch for PlayStation 3 and PS Vita in North America on February 5, 2013 and in Europe in March (date not announced).

Consumers who purchase the PlayStation 3 version of Thieves In Time, through either a retail store or PlayStation Network, will get the PS Vita version free of charge via Sony’s cross-buy program.

Pre-order bonuses for the game were announced as additional skins for Sly and Murray. You’ll get Sly’s Para Glider Sanzaru monkey logo and camouflage skins, and Murray’s undercover Ultimate outfit.

View the game’s final box art, as well as renders of the pre-order skins, at the gallery.

Thanks, PlayStation Blog.

          Sony said that they want to give you a console experience on a handheld, so what better than to have a PS3 game on the Vita? But Sony knows that it would not be enough to get people to buy the game for the handheld, so they created things like Cross-Buy, Cross-Play, etc. If it wasn’t for the Vita, then these features would be utterly useless.

      You can get both for the price of one.

      Being that wrong but being that confident about it is truly an art form.

      so…what’s your point? ’cause you’ll receive the VITA version for free!

    hopefully in the future most if not ALL HD release of handheld games(well at least 1st party Sony games) will have Cross Buy bonuses!!!!!!!

    we had a games event yesterday in my town and i tried this games on both ps3 and vita and they look identical but i liked the game more on vita because of the touch functionality.

  • Acidicsam

    This for my PS3 and Vita for seemingly one price?

    You know deals like that make it really hard not to be at least a bit excited.
