The time-traveling fourth installment of the Sly Cooper series has slipped into 2013, Sony has secretly revealed. Thieves in Time for PS3 and Vita may have slipped into the early part of next year, but at least one purchase will unlock both versions of the game.
In addition to cross buy, Thieves in Time will support cross-play and cross-save features. You'll be able to start the game on one system and continue it on the other thanks to cloud save support. In addition, Vita can be used as an additional radar with the PS3 version of the game, letting you find secret treasures.
