Getting a vita in a few weeks...Can I get it through my PS3 and redownload it on my Vita??? That's great news!!


Yes that works. You don't even need to redownload it though, "purchase" it and download it on your PS3. Just leave it in the "install bubble" until you get your Vita, connect over usb and use the content manager to transfer it to your Vita.

Probably a stupid question, but I currently have neither a PS3 nor Vita. Is there any way for me to "buy" this game for a future Vita? I.e. like on Xbox you can buy things on the web? PSN newb, here.


The only way (if you already have a PSN account) I can think of would be to "purchase" it with Media Go software on your Windows PC. Then when you get your Vita tie it to the same PSN account and it should show up in your transaction history and you could download it then.




Joystiq is stating that the free Vita version still unlocks the PS3 version.

Everyone's favorite Toyota spinoff car line, the Scion, is hooking you up. Actually, Scion's hooking all of us North Americans up (for a limited time, at least) with free copies of MotorStorm RC on the PlayStation Vita. And while the game is also launching on the PlayStation 3 this week for the not-so-free price of $9.99, the Vita version unlocks the PS3 version (also for free). That's your reward for dropping upwards of $250 on a Vita, we suppose.

Pretty sure Joystiq is incorrect.

That's cool. I wonder how the unlock for the PS3 will work...Do we just download the thing for the PSV using our PS3 and then get the PS3 version via the PS store or must we install it on the PSV for the system will recognize our PSV "purchase".

I would not count on being able to get the PS3 version free with this. It's stated in the offer BUY 1 get the other free, and the vita version is free if you don't choose to buy one. To me this means you will have to buy the PS3 version if you really want it.

PS I did see on Joystick where they are saying it is so, I guess we will see tomorrow. I hope so.

Anyone know if this has trophies or not? I do so love getting trophies during downtime at work.

I really hope you can download this on the PS3 now and transfer to Vita later - don't have a Vita yet but I'll definitely get one hopefully soon.


I second that!! Im getting a Vita next month.
I seriously hope that I can purchase free vita version tomorrow via PS3 for next month...

If this is like the FL0W promotion last year, then the game will not stay on your download history for future downloads. Only time will tell.

Also, I hope that I can score both the PS3 and Vita version :-D

Awesome! Too bad I purchased a $20 PSN card today just for this. Guess I'll just use it for something else.

So if I don't have a Vita yet, but plan on getting one within a year, is it possible to download it to my PS3 like a PSP game and save it until I can transfer it to a Vita?

DL GTPSP well worth it, much better on bigger screen, I bought $20 psn card on launch day first game I DLd.

This MS RC game reminds me of REVOLT, I loved that game.

Don't have a Vita, but I'm happy for all those that will be able to DL this for free. I'll still be buying the PS3 version with the ps plus discount though, unless someone finds out the ps3 version can be had for free as well.

It's killing me how they use the ambiguous term "afternoon (Pacific Time)"; I can't wait to grab this. I hadn't really looked into this game, but I watched the little trailer and it looks fun, and for FREE it looks freakin' awesome!

I don't trust any company that says something is free. This is a blatant ad induced app just like 'free' iOS games.

Wonder if this game will have trophies to go along with it. Also eager to see how Dust 514 turns out considering the free to play direction with micro transactions.

It's already been answered that it has trophies. You can check out the guide on ps3trophies.org

Dude didn't you hear? Dust 514 is only coming out with a "companion app" for the Vita. Whether or not they bring the actual game over is in the air, but when it launches it won't be for much other than load outs and planning strategies.

Me too.

PSN should at least include a place keeper ad for games with release dates. Like a pre-order page or something. Another missed opportunity.

No flame, I dig this hardware, just want more to play on it.
