PlayStation Plus: Urban Trial Freestyle Free on Vita for Members

Kristine Steimer's Avatar Posted by 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.

The holiday sales this year were really terrible. To add insult to injury, two of the games I picked up were DMC and Bioshock Infinite. Come on, guys, get your act together. I’ve been burned so many times like this now I’m getting to the point where I’m just going to refuse to buy anything. There’s no reason for this constant slapping in the face of your plus subscribers.

Don’t put games up for sale, or offer Ultimate version, only to have the game go free within a month or two. It’s so common it feels like this is the general Plus marketing strategy– squeeze every last dollar out of people willing to pay for a game, and then offer it for free once everyone already has it.

Although I love the IGC, I think the Plus team needs to either start communicating what the monthly lineup is a month or two in advance, give warnings during sales, or consider revamping the program. Right now the amazingness of the Plus IGC program is being undermined by these sales tactics making it almost pointless.

You Said:

“take advantage of all these PS Plus discounts after the PlayStation Store updates tomorrow, 12/31.”

So where is the list of all the PS Plus discounts?

Btw where is the boxing day sale? You’re the only game company in the world I know of that hasn’t had one yet.

At least the EU got amazing sales last week, in addition to the 12 days of sales either of which alone beat all our sales combined.

If we’re not getting more sales it sucks, but it’s nothing new.

But don’t post that we’re getting a bunch of Plus Discounts this week and then not post any discounts!!!!!!!!

If there aren’t a bunch of discounts tomorrow, it will be your fault for making plus members expect some.

One question, GRID2 is leaving collection, but it was not a full game only timed trial right?


December 30th, 12:23 pm

I hope you’ll be bringing back the 13 for ’13 promo this coming year. 14 for ’14, on January 14th (a Tuesday!) would be awesome :)

@53 Jay_Jon go to the store online in your pc and you will get them.

Urban Trial Freestyle being free is so awesome that there doesn’t need to be any sales this time

NiederX said:

Still waiting for a red comment on the “No Sale?!?” comment

sic2291 said:

December 30th, 1:49 pm

@55 No, the full game is free. If you haven’t checked out with it yet check the store.

ThumbsOfSteel74 said:

December 30th, 2:11 pm

@GummyCore: No. The Drop lists new titles (or old titles on new platforms), demos, and betas. No DLCs, though.

If anything, your examples prove what TXCScorpion said: The sales for the week are generally listed in the Monday Plus post only if there is an additional Plus discount. Otherwise we won’t see them until the Tuesday PS Store update post.



Add any PS4 content to your cart and check out like always. Items will available once you activate your PS4. :)

In 01/01/2014, I´m going to be drunker, so, i´ll not worried, if I lost something good to buy! Seriously! Many thank you for this horrible discounts for next week. I´ll spend my money in more bottles than games! =D

Well this is a another great addition to PS Vita, the holiday deals were fantastic. Gave me a chance to snag some games that I would of never bothered to get!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

PooPface560 said:

I came here expecting a ton of good new year’s days’s sales and instead get a bunch of FREE games..(January)

I’m madd!! ?s

January is like a year away , what were you guys thinking?

Mando44646 said:

December 30th, 2:54 pm

no New Years’ sale? That sucks. I was hoping for one since the Vita was pretty much ignored in the holiday sales – mostly Indie games on sale and not really into Indies

BigBacon87 said:

December 30th, 2:58 pm

Sweet discounts! JK it’s fine, I am actually really stoked on this weeks freebie.

XxGODxMODExX said:

December 30th, 3:02 pm

I don’t understand why everyone is freaking out about them not posting any/all discounts on Monday’s. They do the same thing every week. Tomorrow will have all the sales, discounts, themes and avatars for the week. They’ll probably even do some New Years sale tomorrow or Wednesday.

vasilisk8 said:

December 30th, 3:41 pm

I am from Cyprus and i cant buy anything from the store. What can i do?

GummyCore said:

December 30th, 3:59 pm

@63, the point is, there is always additional PS plus discount in a sizable sales, unless it’s only a couple of items being offered (eg. Walking Dead season 2 season pass, discounted by the publisher due to delays). So we always get a sneak peek in the PS Plus Update posts.

Of course, if there’s a storewide 50% discount, that wouldn’t need additional PS plus discount and would be too long to list in a blog post :D

boomstickbhg said:

December 30th, 4:04 pm

Well the person who posted this update says in the post there will be PS Plus sales added to the store on Dec 31st.

So if there aren’t any Plus sales we can slam them for false advertising, although they’ll probably shift all the blame to the person who posted this without reading it over/including real information.

I am new to PSN and PS Vita. What does it mean that you can download it early and enjoy the discounts tomorrow (12/31). Do you mean download the demo and it’ll automatically unlock?

I don’t normally say it, but yeah, Not a good line up here.

This week is not a very exciting way to ring in 2014.

I was mildly excited to see Urban Trial Freestyle, but then saw it was for the Vita only.. Meh..

Not a good week for sales, but looking forward to trying Urban Trial though :)

SSj4_Ryuk said:

Trash. I’ll admit Sonic Racing was good, but this month was just driving games…poor Vita. A least put SOMETHING on sale.

Europe dominates again, as usual.

Ge the act together for 2014! January is looking good, just add some sales…

djsaiyan said:

December 30th, 6:29 pm

Wasn’t expecting much with this week’s Plus update, and I’m glad I wasn’t disappointed (no, that isn’t sarcasm). I’m legitimately glad there are no sales. I don’t know about you guys but I’m still all kinds of broke from the holidays, and that’s a situation that isn’t gonna be rectified for another couple weeks lol

Looking forward to Urban Trial Freestyle =D

CraddaPoosta said:

I just checked on the list of games that have been added to the Games with Gold thing from Xbox. It’s absolutely laughable. Beyond laughable. It’s downright tragic.

Ever since it was announced for the Vita, having a PS+ subscription seemed like something I would NEED, not just want. It took a few months for the library to really build up steam for me, but, comparatively speaking?

I think I’ll not complain anymore. No other gaming company has ever offered anything close to the value that you get from a paid PS+ subscription that you’ve kept for more than a year.

hazelcabug said:

December 30th, 7:01 pm

Very bad 2014 start for Vita subscribers only. Terrible psp/vita january instant game collection and most of all there is no descent sales on AAA/indie games.

I was watching a ign vedio on coming soon ps4 games guys if you haven’t got a ps4 I sugest you get 1 because after 1 yr ps3 will stop making ps3 and as of 2014 all the big tittles you love on ps3 will be ownly on ps4 like lttle big planet uncharted in famus ranch and clanch ect I can not post vedio link because I might get in trobble but trust me it will be alsome plus ps home is coming to ps4

hazelcabug said:

December 30th, 9:01 pm

@punkmusic don’t spread your B.S. here. there is no way they will stop making games for ps3 after 1 year… there are millions of active ps3 users, it’s game company’s loss if they will stop making ps3 games.

Welmosca said:

December 30th, 10:22 pm

Very good…been waiting to try out Urban Trials freestyle…Plus is something from heavens….so many games that I want for free…this is too good.

duke301 said:

December 30th, 10:33 pm

@52, I know exactly what you are saying. That is the only aspect of Plus! that I don’t like. For example, I bought Diablo III on Black Friday for $40, and last week they turned around and had it for $5 cheaper. Not that $5 breaks the bank, mind you, but that is $5 extra that you could spend on something else. However, there have been plenty of games that I bought, and they had them for free not long afterwards. For that reason, I rarely, if ever, buy games when they are first released anymore. Sooner or later, everything will either be on sale dirt cheap or free on Plus.

@84, If you ever want to be taken seriously, try learning how to spell, not to mention proper English grammar and punctuation.

If I have to choose what is more stinky, this update or Pain of Sarrow’s face. I choose his face because it stinks even more than this update. If LY0D reads this, his face stinks of these two combined.

@FranklynStreet And who’s fault is that? It’s you, blame yourself for buying Bioshock and DmC because of the temptation. Be a smart kid and don’t buy the mainstream games digitally. Learn to buy your games on disc. And if it’s other way around, wouldn’t you say the same thing? Don’t you want something forever than wanting it for a limited time? The only slap in the face is because of your stupidity. But then again, you are probably just trolling because maybe you got both of those games on the Steam sale going on right now.

December 30th, 11:33 pm

@82: 360 got waaaaay better deals this year. I got so many games. Heck, I even got the season pass of “The Wolf Among Us” for 10 bucks. Sony didn’t really have good deals for new games this year. My 360 was there, not being touch, but the sales this year got me into it again.

carlpain said:

December 30th, 11:34 pm

@82: and the best part is that I didn’t need Live to get 85% on games. It’s different with Sony, you only get like a 40% off if you don’t have Plus.

LMAO at “Last Chance” for Contrast you couldn’t pay me to play that garbage of a title.

@duke301: Good post. :)

But Re: punkmusic2009’s post, he does make a great point: There will never be another ranch & clanch game for PS3. ;)

@FranklynStreet: The only thing I disagree with is the sales being terrible. If they were really so bad, you wouldn’t have bought anything. On the other hand, you will own those games even if you quit Plus. That’s worth something. I think some people, 6 months from now, will wish they had bought those games at holiday prices instead of downloading them free via the IGC.

Which is why I try to post deals I see for the most requested games: Far Cry 3, Metal Gear Rising, etc. have all been $15 in the last month at retail. For a game I truly care about, I’d much rather have a disc copy for cheap than a digital one for nothing.

Plus none of the people getting these games on the IGC will ever be able to buy them on PSN. Well, unless they wanna call support and hope for the best. I don’t like having to call support, much less over an issue of this type.

@boomstickbhg: I’m sure you’ll have a perfectly valid lawsuit on your hands, perhaps even a class action since it affects everyone who reads this blog. Fight the power!

Uh…meanwhile, it seems they goofed. Either they didn’t mean to leave out the sales, or they didn’t mean to say there would be any. In any case, we’ll find out later today. Either way, I don’t see what all the fuss is about.

cool! still happy with tearaway being on that great sale. def will download this freebie.

December 31st, 7:38 am

a) don’t they usually put up sales on tuesday people?
b) if not, save your dosh money and buy some glob darned sparkling champagne.
c) if you’re that desperate for amazing sales/to spend your freaking damwn money, take your booty over to steam like the rest of us and buy more games the can physically be played at prices so cheap you can’t afford not to

b1tters said:

December 31st, 7:44 am

#Carlpain that’s interesting, because as i recall the walked dead season pass was under 10 dollars not even a few months ago. and there were some deals that were the same price on both services. i do however recall attempting to purchase dead or alive ultimate 5 and ultimate marvel vs capcom 3 on live for multiple days, via paypal and my bank account, on browser and on xbox to no avail. i even contacted the customer support and they were no help. even after i went and paid for a month of live i was not able to purchase either of the games, one of which was eventually delisted.

so maybe i just screwed up, but they made little to no effort to help me out of a sticky situation which is saying something when i’m a) a paying customer who is b) trying to give you more money.

theXsilentXchild said:

December 31st, 7:48 am

The only thing I picked up from all the sales was spelunking after all the good reviews I found it to be a let down. Hoping for some new years deals of some decent titles. Happy new year everyone.
