    Default Same player twice in online races?

    Same name and takes 2 slots on the grid, with different ships! This must have been already explained somewhere, somehow, but i dont get it. How can this be? Is it related to the Xplay with the Vita?

    It's obviously Crossplay.

    Ok, fine. Pardon my ignorance, but how can such function allows someone to be active twice in the same game? How come Sony didnt proceed with something that forbids this?

    1 player on PSVita and 1 on the PS3... I don't see the problem!

    You'd require crazy multitasking skills there!
    Or perhaps a neural connection to link your brain to the ship(s)

    once upon a time ...
    there was a bug within the game, that showed 2 players with the exactly same PSN-ID. i experienced it myself when i was in a room with 2 'problemsolver' guys.
    this time it's related to the xplay feature, or the bug's back

    Yeah I've seen that bug before Jan, and apparently I was showing up twice in a lobby one time. Kyonshi, if one of the players has a flag and the other doesn't you can be pretty certain they're using cross play. The one with no flag is the Vita player.

    Its not a big problem, no. But i dont get it how it is useful to have one ship you can control and let the other one go pin-ball bouncing on the track. I just dont see the point.

    I can't imagine anybody would want to do that. It's more a case of one person using the PS3 and their friend using the Vita, so they can race each other online whilst in the same room.
