The PlayStation Blog announced today that the PlayStation 3 and Vita versions of Sly Cooper: Thieves In Time will launch at North American retailers and on the PSN on February 5th, 2013.
Sony also revealed that anyone who pre-orders a copy of the game will get the following skins for both the PS3 and Vita; Sanzaru monkey logo and camouflage skins for Sly’s Para Glider, and Murray’s undercover Ultimate outfit.
The announcement also clarified how the Cross-Buy program (which was announced last month at Gamescom) will work. Customers who purchase the PlayStation 3 version of Sly Cooper: Thieves In Time, either through retailers or digitally over PSN, will get a voucher code to download the Vita game from the PlayStation Store.
As suspected, Cross-Buy will not provide customers with a free retail boxed copy of the Vita version. It was not specifically announced, but we expect that this will be case for all future Cross-Buy titles.
Additional details on Sly Cooper: Thieves In Time are expected to be revealed closer to the game’s launch date, we will let you know as soon as they are announced.
