Ruin PS3/Vita to be “packaged together”

Two for the price of one

The PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita versions of Ruin, Idol Minds and SCE San Diego Studios’ E3-announced dungeon crawler, will be come packaged together, Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida revealed.

Speaking to Eurogamer, Yoshida confirmed the game’s bundle release.

“One of the games we’re making, called Ruin, we are developing both the Vita version and the PS3 version of that title,” said Yoshida to the site. “Both games will be packaged together. You can play the game at home on PS3, save your data on our PSN server on the cloud, and you can continue playing the game on PS Vita by downloading the save from the PSN. And you can do vice versa. It’s a continuous experience, playing the same game on PS Vita and PS3.”

Yoshida also confirmed other developers’ interests in the same concept.

“There is lots of interest from publishers and developers to do that. At Konami, Kojima-san announced the concept of Transfarring. The initial product will be between PSP and PS3, but he is also talking about between PS3 and Vita. Actually, it’s easier to create the experience on PS Vita and PS3 because the performance is much similar, and the amount of RAM is pretty similar.”

PlayStation Vita will debut in Japan by the end of the year. A western launch is planned for early 2012.
