Sony Plans to Join PS3 and PS Vita as one

During Sony’s press conference at this year’s E3, they made a strong push towards bundling the PS3 and Vita, more specifically the ability to play a PS3 game and then carry on the PS Vita.
Ruin is one of the games that will enable this function meaning that this rumour can be made true
Shuhei Yoshida, head of Sony Worldwide Studios confirmed this by quoting:
One of the games we’re making, called Ruin, we are developing both the Vita version and the PS3 version of that title. 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 carried on and said that other developers including Kojima are excited at the prospect of interconnectivity between PlayStation devices.
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.
