53 great PS4 games with Cross-Buy on PlayStation Vita that you might not remember

Several years have passed since Sony got out of the PS Vita car, although there are many studies indies that they continue to take it into account in the face of conversions in their most recent work. For many it’s true he’s dead, but that doesn’t mean he’s not « alive » for another sector that loves notebooks.

There is actually one facet that is always forgotten: Cross-purchase with PS4. A feature where, for the payment of a product, we are given the possibility (free) of being able to play it on another console of the PlayStation family. Usually with PS Vita, although the PS3 has also benefited a lot. Today we will review many PS4 games that you can play in portable mode with your PS Vita, if you keep it still … Because the console is discontinued.

New graphic adventures and other classics

Being a touchscreen console, Graphical Adventures is one of the genres best suited to the PS Vita. And over there Double Fine Productions is the most contributing studio, saving three classics from LucasArts and one of their classics released in 2015.

We discussed the Grim Fandango, Day of the Tentacle, and Full Throttle updates as well as the KickStarter, Broken Age twist. Unfortunately, Revolution Software did not do the same with Broken Sword 5: The Serpent’s Curse, by not having Cross-Buy. But this is one of the few exceptions. For example, eschatology Demetrios: THE GREAT Cynical Adventureyes you have it.

Sometimes these were late conversions, such as remake of the mythical Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee, renamed Oddworld: New ‘N’ Tasty, two years behind the original PS4 version. A platform adventure to hit the coconut and save Abe’s companions. And f**t. A lot.

We cannot forget a video game considered to be art (one of the first to appear in the exhibition at the prestigious MoMA), Another World.

On the PlayStation Store …

Metroidvanias, roguelikes and action platforms

A genre that is experiencing its second youth today is that of metroidvania, with more exhibitors than ever and with a variety worthy of note, with more crazy and refreshing proposals. And there are several that luckily also came out on PS Vita with Cross-Buy between PS4. Here, yes, like the rest of the games we list, it should be noted that Cross-Buy only applies to digital purchases. The physical purchases are not worth it.

The case is that we electrify Teslagrad at retro-metroid Axiom Verge, going through the TimeSpinner temporal paradoxes, with other notables like Chasm, Iconoclasts or, more importantly, SteamWorld Dig 2. Because this sequel left layers behind what was seen in the first SteamWorld Dig. And what about the hilarious Unepic, the great adventure of Francisco Tellez de Meneses?

If we expand into more action and platform variants, with a few titles with notes of roguelike, we have one of the best games ever (besides the best remake possible), most of Spelunky. Or that Rogue Legacy whose legacy continues to grow. Even that Souls in 2D called Salt & Sanctuary, with additional mention for Killed: back from h**l, who was polite.

In the purest part of the platform there are more jewels Inde timeless, like Super Meat Boy, Knight’s shovel or Fez. And in its party style, almost no game can beat TowerFall Ascension. Without ignoring this tribute to the history of consoles which bears the name of Super Life of Pixel (very informative, if we are patient) or how addicting it is to immerse yourself without stopping Downwell.

Even with a ’90s spirit and bombproof difficulty, we have the very demanding (but aesthetically ugly to rage) Volgarr le Viking and this little pixelated wonder that responds to the name of Mercenary kings.

Matamarcianos, shooters, fight them and beat them

The PlayStation Vita surprised us by adapting (with some performance limitations, of course) Hits PS4, like the best game it had when it debuted in late 2013: Resogun. A great housemarque matamarcianos that ended up doing honor by seeing the content expanded with DLC.

The s*x of the mantamarcianos It had a really good representation on this laptop and with Cross-Buy, like this Locomalito wonder that takes us back to our childhood (Super Hydorah) or the very original PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate. And with the touch of color brought by the likable Aqua Kitty: Milk Mine Defender DX, an exceptional student of the legendary Defender by Eugene Jarvis from 1981.

If we go to shooters From another angle and with this desire to release adrenaline without asking questions, both Miami Hotline like Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number, they take the cake when it comes to immediacy. And with Nuclear Throne as one of the absolute references of roguelikes that leave Gauntlet in layers.

We cannot ignore, even if we didn’t love her as much as Magicka, that Arrowhead Game Studios’ Helldivers and his destructive four-group friendships, while for the fight lovers there is the seer Skullgirls 2nd Againon the one hand and the Beat them brazilian retro fit 99Vies on another side.

Adventures, RPGs and other very diverse genres

To top it off, we could include genres as disparate as role-playing games with Sandbox, extreme sports and endless runner musical comedies. Where do we start? For example, inside the RPG is the gem Darkest Dungeon, the Japanese veteran Origine Ys or that atypical Inde that revolutionized the industry, Undertale.

In adventures we can go from the intimate Alone with you even the evocative Bastion, with the touch of Boss rush by Titan Souls. Or directly say goodbye to our social life with the Stardew Valley simulator. As if we were going straight Sandbox with 8 and 16-bit spirit, like Retro City Rampage DX and its spiritual successor, Shakedown: Hawaii, riddled with winks everywhere.

What do we prefer rarities? There is the histrionic and pulperil Octodad: Dadliest Catch, ou le fantastic Light spear, where to test our goal with the spear. Otherwise, we can choose the turn-based strategy of Steamworld heist.

What if we want something more alive? Or we opt for the skate arcade d’OlliOlli and OlliOlli 2: Welcome to Olliwood; or by the musical rhythm of BIT.TRIP présente… Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien o NecroDancer crypt.

Are there more Cross-Buy games between PS4 and Vita?

Despite Sony not giving it the hype it should and in PlayStation Store, the list released in Spain doesn’t even reach a quarter of what actually exists (over 200 games with Cross-Buy), we left out a lot to focus on the most recommended ones, Hateful boyfriend have your audience. We have the winner Thomas was alone, for example.

Currently the editor Ratalaika Games is the one that brings out, by far, more games with Cross-Buy for PS Vita. In fact, rare is the month where no one comes out and with twice as many Platinum Trophies (one for PS4 and one for Vita), being, to top it off, one of the easiest to obtain. But at least some games are popular, like Super Destronaut DX. And their prices don’t exceed 5 eurosgo

As with other studies, we have seen more recent and visually valuable titles, such as the follow-up to Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken, to others from generations past, such as Cel Damage HD, what would be the (unofficial) game of Crazy cars. The list is huge, but What other video games would you name?
