MotorStorm RC Free for a Limited Time on Vita

The title is launching tomorrow on both the Vita and PlayStation 3, but thanks to Toyota owners of the new handheld will be getting it for free.

Current owners of a shiny new PlayStation Vita will be excited to learn that they'll be able to augment their game library tomorrow without the need to drop any cash. Thanks to Toyota, MotorStorm RC will be totally free in the US starting tomorrow exclusively on the PlayStation Vita. This limited time promotion will also include a Vita exclusive RC version of the Scion iQ - this comes alongside a wide assortment of other downloadable content for the miniaturized racer.

European Vita owners aren't as fortunate as to get the game for free, but they will be able to purchase just one of the versions and receive access to both. It's not clear from the PlayStation Blog entry how long this promotion will last, so be sure to grab your copy once it goes live tomorrow afternoon on the PlayStation Store. Also be sure to check back for our review coverage on the title.

Correction: US Vita owners will only be getting the Vita version for free - European Vita owners will get both, but only after purchase of one or ther other. The original article has been updated to reflect this.

Nick, with the North American version the PS Vita version is free but you pay for the PS3 version, so for North American owners if you get the PS Vita version, you do not automatically get access to the PS3 version.

The European version is if you buy one version you get both. This came from comments of Sony employees in the blog.

"Scion have sponsored the free download for a limited time in the US Store.

In Europe you can get both the PS3 and PSVita versions for £4.79/€5.99 as per the “pay once get both” offer."

"You’ll get the Vita version for free; The PS3 version is $9.99 ($7.49 with your Plus discount)."

Thanks for the heads up, I must've misread that. The article has been updated to reflect the proper information.
