MotorStorm RC to be free on US PlayStation store for Vita for limited time
By: Jeff Rivera
MotorStorm RC, which releases tomorrow for the PlayStation 3 and PS Vita, will be available for free on the US PlayStation store for a limited time. Thanks to a partnership with Scion, the PS Vita version will be offered at no cost, and the game will also receive an exclusive Scion-branded car.
The full details were posted at the PlayStation Blog this morning. You can read the full post here: http://blog.us.playstation.com/2012/03/05/motorstorm-rc-driving-to-ps-vita-for-free-courtesy-of-scion/
Personally I think this is a great idea. Even after receiving strong reviews and great positive initial impressions from the European release, Sony found a way to leverage a sponshorship contract to get this game out for free to Vita owners. It's not going to make systems fly off shelves, but knowing that Sony is willing to do these sort of deals has to make potential Vita buyers feel all the more inclined.
Check back later this week for our full review on the game.
