Motorstorm RC is now going to be free for the Vita (possibly for a limited time). Snag it when it drops tomorrow (March 6th). PS3 version will allow crossplay and will be $10 or $7.50 for Plus members.

I'm really looking forward to this one. Sony just sweetened the pot by giving me some competitors who might not otherwise have paid for it.

Update - Brief description for PS3 version was just posted on the blog: High-speed radio-controlled car racing hits the MotorStorm circuit in MotorStorm RC! With visually stunning renditions of all four MotorStorm worlds (and eight of their vehicle classes,) this RC racing game comes loaded with endless competition that you can share with friends and rivals worldwide — whether that’s on PS3 or PS Vita, or both!

I'm confused- i thought they had previously announced that if you bought either the PS3 or Vita version of this game that you were going to get the other one for free. I was excited because I planned on buying both and was going to save some money. It doesn't make any difference - 2 games, 1 price. I'm just a bit confused by it I guess.

That may eventually be the case, but currently the Vita version is free because of Scion.

Considering it was going to be $9.99 for both at release originally, it's essentially the same deal.

I think they've just changed it so that everyone can get the Vita version at no cost (although I suspect that will be for a limited time only). In essence, Vita version is free, PS3 version is $10/$7.50 if you want it. Crossplay between the two no matter what.

Honestly, I'm such a rabid Stormer that I would have bought it regardless.

I think it only has online leaderboards but I could be wrong.

Nope, I think you're right... my bad. That was stuck in my head from looking up Hustle Kings earlier. I'm pretty sure the Vita version only does scorechasing.

I haven't seen ANYTHING about the PS3 version. It'd be nice if it does some additional kind of matchups or smthng. Guess we'll find out tomorrow.

Still, free is free, not going to complain. It may actually spur me to pick up the PS3 version if there is some sort of multiplayer.

Since they originally said that the Vita version included the PS3 version(and the reverse), I wonder if the free one nets us both copies. I seriously doubt it though, like someone said above it seems they redid the promo. I believe the crossplay just consists of them tracking your progress and track times on the server and allowing you to pick up where you left off when you switch systems.

I didn't even know there was going to be a PS3 version. I thought this game was Vita only. I'll probably pick up the PS3 version too. I can only assume the game will play better on my big HDTV.

Normally not big on corporate shillery, but....thank you Scion! Between giving me a free video game, and releasing the FR-S later this year, you're giving me a reason to start liking Toyota again.

This is an excellent deal. I was going to try out the game before buying it and, for me, this serves as a great way to demo the product. If this turns out to be any fun I'll be buying the PS3 version for sure. If not, I still get a free game out of it for my new Vita. Win-win for everyone :)

It still is, for Europe. If you buy one version it works for both system. However for US only Vita version is free

The original blog post says "for a limited time". I'm pretty sure when the time is up, it'll revert to "buy one, get both". Before then, it's just a bonus for anyone who wasn't already sure they were going to buy it... they get the Vita version free.

For everyone who was going to buy it anyway, we get the extra a car, a Scion.

Just adding this because a lot of peeps seem confused or even vaguely offended by the whole "free" thing (which makes no sense to me at all)...

If you read the Sony replies to the comments on the original blog post about the Vita version being free, the Sony mod stated:

"Rest assured that no matter when you purchase the PS3 version of MotorStorm RC, you will be entitled to the VITA version for free. We will discuss further details when the Scion giveaway ends."

So, you can get the Vita version with Scion bits for free now. If you want the PS3 version, you pay for it. If you pay for the PS3 version, you'll always have the Vita version available, even when the Scion offer is over.

Got it started, along with the PS3 version... taking forever, but I bumped it to the top of my "queue"... A ton of stuff dropped this week that I've been waiting for. My PS3 will be downloading all night. :S

I'm really enjoying this game, I tried to put it down and go to bed but I found myself saying "one more race". I really not good with the controls, and not sure if I like the normal or alternate steering better.

I forced myself to put it down last night after I'd beaten you an Syn on the first track. :P

I'm busy over the next couple days, but I'll get on it.

I fired up the PS3 version this morning to see what sync... You have to redo the tutorial, but otherwise everything is there. The controls are slightly different (R2/L2 instead of right stick for gas and brake). However, the first thing I noticed was that it prompted me for 3D... going to have to check it out at some point, but I can't see it making a big difference since it's kind of a top-down view.
