Last week, Sanzaru Games, the maker of Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time said the game would also release on the PlayStation Vita at the same time it arrives for the PS3. This video from the PlayStation Blog sheds more light on what that will mean.
For starters, Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time will have cross-platform compatible gamesaves. But it'll also take advantage of the touch-screen and back touch-pad controls, and the device's accelerometer for doing things like guiding an arrow in midflight or scanning the room with the binocucom.
Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time doesn't have a release date yet, but it'll be out in late fall or by the end of the year.
