PlayStation Plus: Urban Trial Freestyle Free on Vita for Members

Kristine Steimer's Avatar + Posted by Kristine Steimer on Dec 30, 2013 // Sr. Community Specialist

Let’s face it, you probably have some time to kill before New Year’s Eve. Starting tomorrow Urban Trial Freestyle is free for PlayStation Plus members, so download it on your PS Vita before heading out to celebrate. If you find yourself in a boring conversation, excuse yourself to the restroom and mess around with some bike trials where you’ll attempt to pull off tricks like backflips, ollies and 360s. For those with a more competitive streak, you can challenge other riders with Ghost Mode. As addictive as Urban Trial Freestyle is, try not to spend the entire party in the bathroom. That can give the wrong impression.

You can download Urban Trial Freestyle and take advantage of all these PS Plus discounts after the PlayStation Store updates tomorrow, 12/31.

Urban Trial Freestyle seems very cool, however the discounts aren’t really my cup of tea. I think they should’ve done better discount-wise with the start of the new year and all …

Actually, you’re wrong on all counts. You have tried to insult me, as anyone can plainly see. But otherwise, you have failed the internet. It’s more than just me arguing a point of view. Others have the right to complain; I have the right to address those complaints on their merits or lack thereof. People can address my points and so on.

The only point you came on here to make is that everyone posting is a paying customer. It takes only a valid e-mail address to make an account. Not sure where the payment comes from.

Not everyone is like you and has to go looking things up.

To coin a phrase, get off my nuts.

(Previous comment was @BahumatIsBack)

@Dr-Jones104: There’s a workaround for that issue. Add a few random items to your cart before adding Urban Trials Freestyle for Vita. Go to checkout and remove the unwanted items. Urban Trials should now show up as free. Hope that helps. :)

@ Gamerzlimited you didn’t have to be rude about it. But you are right, I probably misinterpreted the other post as being the 31st maint. I’m sure it will happen on the maint that will be on the 7th?

You completely sidestep the issue that you’re on here waaaaayyyyy too much trying to talk/yell down anybody that doesn’t agree with you which is what you’re trying to do with me. The vast majority on here are paying customers btw. See all those plus symbols next to most people’s names? Well, that takes a subscription fee and at the very least a base purchase of a console so it’s a little more than the entry fee of just an email address. Oh, and I also like how you “coined” that phrase. Maybe you should spend a little more time educating yourself instead of spending it here calling people stupid. Go read a book. You obviously need to

And please, for the love of God, stop acting like you’re so important on a public game console forum. Do we really need to see you post 30 or 40 times a day? It’s always funny how everybody wants to be the big man on the internet, but in reality nothing could be further from the truth.

Listen, if you’re a customer paying for a service (as we are paying for PS+), you have every right to voice your displeasure if you dissatisfied in some way. I don’t understand why those not happy with this month’s selections are getting blasted for being ‘whiners’ and for complaining. If you pay for something, you have every right, as long as you do it in a respectable way.

I personally think that, overall, PS+ is very worth the $50, for PS3 owners. Just January 2014 alone makes the investment worth it. Having said that, I do think Vita owners get overlooked somewhat and seem to be almost afterthoughts some months.

As far as the people complaining that they “already bought the game” at retail or at PS+ discount and two months later, it’s on the IGC list….I have a word of advice: only buy brand new titles. The rest? Wait for IGC releases. I waited on Bioshock Infinite and presto, it’ll be here soon! If there’s a game you positively can’t wait for, by all means…buy it. But if you can wait, don’t waste your money. That’s what PS+ is for!

@rudetoy: Fair enough. You do have every right to complain. But there are those like me who are as tired of the *constant* complainers (not saying you’re one) as some are tired of me. Too bad for all of us, I guess. I’m not shutting up, and I hope you won’t either.

I’ve said many times on this blog that I think Vita owners have more of a point than PS3 owners when they complain.

Besides which, I think we all tend to lump the “other” guys (i.e. those we disagree with) into false categories. I don’t consider all or even most complaints against Sony invalid, and I don’t always agree with my supposed “side.”

And I have an entirely different perspective than many regarding the IGC. It keeps me from ever really being disappointed, though I somewhat understand the disappointments of others.

@ThumbsOfSteel74- Thanks for understanding. Reading a lot of the blog comments, I think there’s a difference between expressing an opinion and just blasting the PSN folks, who I’m sure do the best they can. It seems like they do read our comments, so hopefully they can increase the Vita IGC catalog. I went back and looked at the history of IGC releases and the PS3 list is very impressive. The Vita, not so much. I think there’s a couple of things at play here. A) Not that many high quality Vita titles in general and, B) Far fewer Vita owners than PS3 owners. The Vita has not sold very well so far, though the #’s are increasing. I think Sony doesn’t see Vita owners as a big target audience but I think if they did, they’d see more loyalty from potential customers and more incentive to go out and buy one.

I have a feeling 2014 is going to be a very good year for PS+ but I guess we’ll wait and see. The one thing I don’t understand is PS4 owners blasting PS+ for not having more titles. The console just debuted and there’s only a handful of games! :) Not like they can just put Call of Duty:Ghosts in the IGC list when it just went on sale!

I’m very excited to try this game out. I used to buy and play extreme sports games a lot when I was younger. I have fond memories of unlocking the silver and gold borders on 1080 Snowboarding, of tearing up Tony Hawk 2, and riding my ATV to the edge of the world and being sent flying in free ride on ATV Off-road Fury. I gradually fell away from those types of games as their market became oversaturated, and more focus was put on making the games as arcadey and unrealistic as possible. Anyway, all’s to say I’m happy to get a free ticket back into extreme sports gaming. Thanks guys! Happy New Year!

@BahumatIsBack Huh. Guess my reputation here hasn’t spread completely (Been getting a lot of friend invites from the PS blog recently), but I see what you mean. Thanks for the friendly advice, I may have seen you before but I probably don’t remember. That what I would have said if you were directing your comment to me.

@ariaandkia Yeah, your right. My bad, that was pretty unnecessary. Sometimes it’s hard for me to tell whether your a paying customer or a whiner. Turns out your just a paying customer and I would have probably said something different to you.

So…no update on the not so weekly deals? c’mon guys, december was a total bust, saying that the deals were poor is a huge understatement, I was really hoping for a boxing day sale (didn’t happen), a big end of the year sale (nowhere to be seen), announcement of a new years sale (like psn eu got…nope).

Gotta love the people over at psn eu whining that psn us has better deals and better “free” games..crazy folks, they should see what the current deals are around here, .25c off on Blimp: The no one cares adventures of whatever, or half off on zombie I wouldn’t take the time to download it even if it was free driver hd.

You guys really need to step up, “take advantage of all these PS Plus discounts after the PlayStation Store updates tomorrow, 12/31″ …misinformed? or just incompetent? not all of us plus subscribers are in it solely for the “free” games every month, alot of us including me want to spend our money on some discounted games and such.

Anyways..terrible way to end the year and start anew , I never would have imagined Xbox Live to have better deals than psn.

PS: thanks for the upcoming bioshock infinte, I bet the people that spent 13 bucks on it a few weeks ago are just ecstatic to get it.

Hey Sony guys,

I just added Urban Trial Freestyle PS Vita to my cart along with other free stuff and when I click “confirm purchase”, the “Urban Trial Freestyle PS Vita” was US$9,99. So it used the value from my wallet. Can you please help me and check this problem for other people also?

Thanks

Looks like a GREAT WEEK ……

to show up way late, that is.

No Sales, and Already own BOTH Vita IGN’s.
(Like Urban Trial and Worms are one of HOW MANY titles that could have been added)

Good choices though, maybe your future customers/followers will have more money to spend on more important things or ……..at least better games.

Your Customer Service AND the Vita,
will not allow the purchase of games, which kept me from adding GOW Ascension :(
And I Just Missed the flash sale for Tearaway.

Hope you guys get your service together.
And instead of hoping to rake in Christmas cash, you should have put the sales up now to allow customers to get more enjoyment with what could be one of the very few times that they get the chance to actually buy anything.

But commercialism rules(Bah Humbug).

(As for me) Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
My youngest boys have enjoyed Strangers Wrath, and I have platinum’d Lego Batman so they can play All the Characters (their fav. so far).
Downloading Sega Allstars and Ratchet and Clank now.

Wow all this time and comments and not even a hint of a word from anyone at the Blog/Sony.

I sure hope that the Blog staff isn’t paid for what they do. On the best weeks they do terrible work, inaccurate posts and ignore most important questions.

If Sony pays these people they should be fired. Start the New Year with something good for once.

Even if a blog staff member booked this week off work for some reason, there should still be someone there to fill in for them, like every other business in north America (basically).

Once again Sony shows that no matter how many advantages they might get/make for themselves, when it comes to customer service they fall far far far behind all other companies.

Thanks for posting lies and then never following up to correct or address the problem.

@PrimeroIncognito I’m talking about the part where you said Cradda needs a calendar. Pretty sure we all know what he meant. To keep it short, I’m just saying there’s no reason to say something like that to him. That’s all.

@boomstickbhg I don’t think you could do a better job. In fact, I think you would do even worst than them. If they are the “Worst Employees in the World,” then they would be greedy and make us pay for the PS+ games and cloud storage in addition to the subscription itself. You sir, are just plain stupid.

I also believe that the “sticky” games for the Vita need to be changed.

I feel like Persona 4 Golden, Lumines: ES, Spelunky, and Velocity: Ultra have all been out long enough to be one of the new stickies, and would all be good candidates.

Depending on how well it has been selling, I might even say to include Tearaway in there. It was on sale for a nice $20 recently but I feel like most people aren’t fully understanding how great this game is until they buy it, which is a shame.

@ Gamerzlimited

Really… if you had been paying more attention, you’d know that Mr. Poostains deserves to be given a hard time over any little flub he makes. Did you forget how long he’s been trolling this blog? If he dishes it out, there’s no reason he shouldn’t be able to take it too. Do you remember reading someone say that “IGC = Indie Garbage Can” every week? Well, that was him. And most importantly, when I attempted to have a civil discussion with him about it (no insults), he responded by talking down to me, calling me “little boy”, and all the other ridiculous crap he does to anyone who questions him. He did nothing but post disrespectful garbage on this blog for months on end. Then he says I’m obsessed… please, the only one obsessed with him is himself. Dude rides his own jock like he’s only got a few months left to live. All respect is out the window with him. I owe him nothing.

I don’t need to be told that I’ve crossed the line. I’m well aware of where the line is, and if I do ever cross it, I’m doing it knowingly, and only to someone who is deserving of it.

@PrimeroIncognito I wasn’t aware of the fights you had with Cradda because they’re usually a few days away after the blog is posted and I never read them. I do remember the time when he called indie games garbage like you said. I think I said something to him that indie games aren’t garbage and that he played the bad ones, but he probably just ignored me because he’s too focused on saying crap to you. I have no beef with that guy, but I’ll agree what you said about him. You’re right about him being the obsessed one if he downright ignored me like that. Technically he’s your problem, not mine since he doesn’t say that to me. Another guy that also posts disrespectful garbage on this blog that have a problem with is that Poo of Sarrow jerk.
