MotorStorm RC free on Vita tomorrow

Tomorrow, the PS Vita version of MotorStorm RC will be completely free for all PlayStation Network members (not just Plus!).


Gamers have every reason to be fearful of a free sponsored game. Adver-gaming has created monstrosities like Yaris, after all. However, a new promotion for the Scion iQ should be less scarring.

Tomorrow, the PS Vita version of MotorStorm RC will be completely free for all PlayStation Network members (not just Plus!). The PS3 version, which was originally going to be bundled with the PS Vita version, will be available to purchase separately for $9.99 ($7.49 for Plus members).

The Vita version of MotorStorm RC features a custom RC version of the Scion iQ--its inclusion a small price to pay to receive the game for free.

MotorStorm RC features a number of cross-platform bells and whistles. For example, leaderboards are unified between PS3 and Vita users. If you own both versions of the game, you'll be able to freely transfer your save file between the console and the handheld.

        i guess we will see tomorrow. what competitive multiplayer is out there right now? i'm surprised that Unit 13 has no competitive play. that would have been a must buy for anyone with the system if it did.

          I just found a review of it and it doesnt have multiplayer. As far as what games out now that do, Wipeout 2048. I have that one and its actually pretty good over wifi.
          Other things like MVC3 and i think ModNation racers have wifi multiplayer too

            ModNation doesn't. Only local play I think.

              wtf is going on with competitive MP on this device? were these titles rushed out, is this a priority at all, wtf is the point of the 3g model?

              CoD better come with competitive MP.

                Yeah I'm not sure either. ModNation would've been an instant buy if it had competitive multiplayer. I'm glad Wipeout and Hot Shots does because those games wouldn't be as awesome if they didn't.

                  I'm having a blast with Hot Shots even though I haven't done any of the comp multiplayer.. I don't even know how lol. Is it VS like the challenge mode? or is it like 3 or 4 of your friends in a lobby playing golf?

                    It's kind of weird how they did it, when you want to play competitive multiplayer you basically go into a lobby. Not like a lobby where all you see is people's names and a picture, but like a physical lobby where you can walk around and type anything you want. Kind of like second life or playstation home in a way. From there you pull up a menu which will bring up a list of games to join. These games are created by the players where they can specify the settings and so on. Once you join a game (I think up to 8 people) you're still waiting in that lobby for a few minutes until the game starts. Then when it starts you pick your golfer/gear and start playing.

                    Once playing, you're basically on a timer for the entire hole. It's not that restrictive (though I think the host can change the length), so you're not rushed at all. Once you completed your taken to the scoreboard where you can chat with others and see everyone's score. Unfortunately, you have to wait for the timer to get to 0 even if everyone already finished. This kind of adds some unecessary playing time, since everyone usually finishes like 10-15 seconds before the timer ends.

                    I haven't tried playing with a friend, so I don't know if that process is any different. Still, it's really fun even though there is some added time compared to just playing by yourself.
