MotorStorm RC Races on to PSN and Vita Next Spring

Cross platform play supported.

It’s hard to believe, but the PlayStation Vita’s launch date is a mere three months away as of today.  For a while we didn’t hear much about what games are going to be available at launch, but lately it seems the announcements and stories just keep pouring in.  Today’s new game announcement comes courtesy of Paul Rustchynsky, Game Director at Evolution Studios, who proclaimed via the Official PlayStation Blog that MotorStorm RC will be making its way to the Vita and the PSN.

This rendition of the popular off-road racing franchise puts you in control of a variety of radio-controlled vehicles such as buggies, superminis, rally cars, muscle cars and more.  The game world is divided into four distinct locations from previous MotorStorm games, each with four tracks, bringing the total to 16 unique races.

 

One of the more unique features is that the game spans both the PSN and Vita, meaning that if you purchase the game on one platform you also get it on the other free of charge.  Details haven’t been given as to how exactly this will work, but it will likely use the same methodology as shown off by Ruin at this year’s E3 – the game is saved online on one device and then retrieved by the other so that you can continue your progress on the go.

MotorStorm RC will be available next spring.  Stay tuned to PixlBit for more details as they become available.

I'm excited about the possibility between transferring your game from one device to another. Being able to play a game on the run and then simply transferring it to your home device to play it on the big screen is fantastic. It's like the Wii U's second screen but more portable and more expensive (in theory).

Intelligent Qube Review Rewind

The original PlayStation console opened new doors of innovation in game development. Its hardware capabilities gave designers greater freedom to present fresh experiences from well-established genres. And in some cases, it would attract outsiders that previously had no background in game development at all. Such was the case with Masahiko Sato- known for his brilliant TV commercials produced in Japan (and a bevy of other talents). Though not a game designer by trade, he created Intelligent Qube- a new type of block puzzle game to challenge curious minds.
