PS Vita gets action RPG 'Ruin'

Cross compatibility with PS3

Sony has revealed a new action RPG for the now named PlayStation Vita portable.

It looks like a top-down dungeon crawler, with multiple character classes, loot, deep character progression and a brutal fighting system.

More interestingly though, a PS3 version will also be released, and players will be able to save their game to a cloud server, allowing them to resume their progress on either console.

Sony demonstrated the system on stage at its press conference today, playing though a small section of the game before saving and quickly resuming its game on the big screen via a PS3.
