Motorstorm RC Vita unlocks PS3 version?

3 replies 380 views Edited Apr 9, 2012

This article seems to indicate that as the case, at least:

http://www.joystiq.com/2012/03/05/motorstorm-rc-free-for-a-limited-time-on-vita-in-the-us-thanks/

"And while the game is also launching on the PlayStation 3 this week for the not-so-free price of $9.99, the Vita version unlocks the PS3 version (also for free)"ually

I pre-downloaded Motorstorm RC for Vita on my PS3 before I actually got the system, and I have recently uploaded it to the Vita and played it for a bit.  I've gone online with it and synced my trophies with the server.  I was thinking perhaps the PS3 version would show up for download in my download list, but so far no dice.  Can anyone tell me how I can go about unlocking the PS3 version?  Or is the information in this link simply incorrect?

That is the first I have heard of it. Have you tried to go to the PS3 PSN store to see if the "buy it" button has turned to a "download" button?

I can confirm that the 'free' Vita version of Motorstorm RC does NOT unlock the PS3 version.  That is, the PS3 version still has a 'Buy' button.  I'm not sure how it will work when the Vita version promo ends.  I imagine each version will be a separate purchase.

I think EU has a promo that if you buy the PS3 version, it includes the Vita version for free.

Either way, you do only need to buy the DLC once for both versions.
