Foosball 2012 coming to PS3, PS Vita to feature cross-platform play

Jakub Miyska, CEO of Grip Games, has released a video complimenting the cross-platform play for the upcoming PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita title Foosball 2012.
Grip Games looks to be complimenting the advertised cross-platform playability that the PS Vita has, in a few very good ways. Buying the game for either version grants the other version for free, so the game only has to be purchased one time in order to play it on both consoles. This policy will also apply to any downloadable content as well, so each piece of DLC will only have to be purchased once and will be accessible on both consoles.
Foosball 2012 will also feature an automatically-syncing save system. When the game saves, it will upload to the game servers, which will also piggyback multiplayer statistics and trophies with it, and be accessible automatically on the other console. So, players don't need to play through the same things to get the trophies for both versions.
Now, the true pinnacle of cross-platform play: players on the PS3 can play against players on the PS Vita online. It's great to see a development company truly integrating all of the functionality that the relationship between the PS3 and the PS Vita can have. Check out what Miyska has to say in this trailer!
