Motorstorm RC free to US Vita owners

Monday, 5th March 2012 22:58 GMT By Brenna Hillier

The Vita version of Motorstorm RC will be free from the US PlayStation Store for a limited time.

The racer launches in the US from March 6 and will be be free to all takers for an unspecified period.

The promotion comes courtesy of Scion; the manufacturer’s iQ is exclusive to the Vita version.

The PlayStation 3 version also launches tomorrow, for $9.99 or $7.49 if you’re a PS Plus subscriber. In Europe, purchasing one version gives you a free copy of the other, but that’s not the case in the US – you certainly won’t get the PS3 version as a reward for downloading the Vita release while it’s free.

Motorstorm RC was developed by the core Motorstorm franchise team, Evolution, and has a Micro Machines-esque vibe. it’s lots of fun and ridiculously cheap.

    To #1 and #2.

    Sorry. Won’t work. Unlike PS3, Vita ties games to memory card and user account. I’ve tried already. While I can play the Motorstorm PS3 UK demo on my US PS3…..I cannot play the Motorstorm Vita UK demo on my US Vita.

    This previous comment by absolutezero may well work around it …
