Tomorrow (March 6) North American Vita users are in for a treat -- MotorStorm RC will be available completely free of charge, courtesy of Toyota Scion. There's even a custom RC version of the Scion iQ, exclusive to the Vita version!

MotorStorm RC features 16 unique tracks spread across four extreme environments, including the dusty desert mesas of Monument Valley, the dangerous jungles of a Pacific Island, the icy tundra at the Arctic Edge, and the apocalyptic ruins of a destroyed urban city. Players can conquer these environments in powerful radio-controlled vehicles, with hundreds of uniquely customized models to collect in 8 distinct categories: Buggies, Superminis, Rally Cars, Muscle Cars, Racing Trucks, Supercars, Big Rigs and Monster Trucks.

MotorStorm RC will be available free for Vita for a limited time beginning with tomorrow's PlayStation Store update. The PS3 version will cost $9.99 (or $7.49 for PlayStation+ members).

The European Toyota Aygo made it to NA? wow... but seriously, a game for free, nice! Plus a custom RC Scion with a very nice acceleration!

You can get this in any region by creating an account on PSN for that region and switching to it on your Vita.
Here is a guide to doing that:

It works as I do it for JPN demos, not sure it'll work for full games as I believe they are signed to the individual account when purchased wheras demos are not.

never been a fan of racing games, but with vitas screen it cant hurt to have a free racing game on it. Just hope it's not huge I still havent found a decent 32gig card for my vita, they need to make a microsd adapter like the duo ones

It isn't really that good of a game, I was expecting something like Drift Mania for the Wii (which I really loved) but got something that doesn't feel like a racing game at all, most tracks are against not cars but arrows on the track for time trials. It's probably unfair to compare this to Drift Mania but Drift had a funny side to it too, the CPU would constantly do funny shit like failing, going to wrong way, getting knocked to the other side of the track, etc. while Motorstorm RC... hasn't.


God I want Drift Mania for Vita.

No reason to complain when it's for free though. :tpi:

Unless it's really "poo bad", as in "poo is for free too, but you don't go around picking it up and playing with it" bad.

The game is so bad, Sony have to give it away!
There's the other angle to look at it.

"The new Toyota is so bad it needs to buy people games to convince them that the car won't fall apart in the first nanosecond of use".

Alternatively, angle number three:

"They're both so good/so bad that they just go together well".

Pick yer poison. :tpi:

The game is free because in Europe you buy it on either PS3 or Vita and get it free on the other system. This didn't happen in US so now they offer it free on one system so you buy it on the other to match Europe. Only you don't have to buy the other one which sucks a bit.
