Sony was already planning to make MotorStorm RC a buy-one-get-it-on-both-platforms title, but once tomorrow’s PSN Store update drops and the game is officially released in North America PS Vita users are going to be able to download and play it completely free of charge, whether they purchase the $9.99 PS3 version or not.
A partnership with Scion has made this limited time offer possible, and an RC version of Scion’s iQ will be featured as a playable ride exclusively on PS Vita. The PS Vita version won’t feature the local four-player competitive racing found on PS3, but other than that the game is the same on both platforms and the two versions share progress, should you download the pair.
Features aren’t being cut out to make the Vita version free either; it’ll have 16 tracks, eight customizable RC vehicle classes, competitive multiplayer of the ghost time attack and leaderboard type, and more.
Here’s a look at how the two platforms work together to create a competitive social networking experience.
