PS3/ps4/vita cross play games psn

Found 2nd Jan 2015
I am new to the psn world, today I bought my son terraria on his vita, in the overview it said cross play for PS3, so I thought that meant if I bought it on there I wouldn't have to buy it again on his PS3? Yet it is asking me to pay a further £11.99 for download onto PS3. Any help would be great thanks

Are you signed in on the same PSN account on both consoles?

Yes. Everything is the same for both

on the page for the game is the psn store "bag " blue or red, usually next to the price info.
if it's red that means you can just hit the download button without being charged.

Thanks. I'll check, sorry got repeat comment, didn't realise refresh on my phone would do that.

It's blue :-(

does it take you to the payment page If you continue with the process. ?

also something in my brain is telling me that there is a section where you choose what console it's on if that helps !
I'm just so used to clicking away without a second thought that I've never stopped to actually think about the process.

ahh, i see the problem now.
Cross Play means you can transfer your save file between the systems.
Like you i mistook your Q for Cross Buy which let's you own it across all platform's or whatever the developer chooses.

So you can only hope for it to appear in the 2nd part of the psn same next Wednesday.

I see. Thank you very much. I wasn't sure how it worked as I bought putty squad also on the vita, but it then allowed me to download on theps3 and ps4 for free. Oh well, they can stick to minecraft on ps4. Thanks for your help :-)

no problem, happy to help.
