Sony offers free games after Ratchet & Clank: QForce Vita delay

MotorStorm RC and Ratchet: Gladiator for owners of PS3 version.

Sony will offer two free games to PlayStation 3 owners of Ratchet & Clank: QForce in response to the ongoing delay of the game's PlayStation Vita version.

QForce, known as Full Frontal Assault outside of Europe, is a cross-buy title. Those who own it on PS3 have a free entitlement to the Vita version.

The game launched on PS3 last November, when it was announced the Vita version had been pushed back until January. It was then delayed a second time, and currently holds a vague "spring" release date.

Ratchet & Clank: QForce owners will be emailed over the next week with a download code for racer MotorStorm RC. A free digital copy of PS2 platformer Ratchet: Gladiator will follow upon its upcoming PSN Store release.

"As announced, the PS Vita version of the game is now due in Spring 2013," explained Sony's European product manager Ross Alexander, via the EU PlayStation blog. "The reason for this delay is to give the developer time to create the best portable Ratchet & Clank experience possible.

"We really appreciate your patience and are aiming to announce a specific release date for R&C: QForce on PS Vita as soon as possible."
