FuturLab and Curve Digital have announced Velocity Ultra will be released on PlayStation 3 in full HD later this year, but without Cross-Buy or Cross-Save options.

The game will retain all the features included in the Vita version and will share its trophies and leaderboards with handheld version but will not support Cross-Buy or Cross-Save.

“We would have loved to have done both Cross Buy and Cross Save – we’re doing it for Velocity 2X – however there are good reasons why we can’t do it,” said James Marsden, managing director at FuturLab on the PS Blog.

“Cross Buy: Since we FuturLab self published on PS Vita, and Curve Studios are publishing on PS3, it wouldn’t make any financial sense for Curve to publish if it were cross buy because so many people got the PS Vita version for free on PlayStation Plus. We thought it was better to have the game on PS3 without cross buy than not at all. Hope you can understand this.

“Cross Save: Because the game is being published by different companies which are both small with limited budgets to make this stuff happen, it would have been too much work to do cross save as it is a complicated process.

“The game does however share trophies, as that is a painless process that both companies had enough time and resources to support. Sorry if you’re disappointed by this, but again it’s the only options we had available.”
