Vita gamers getting free downloads to tempt them

Clearly, someone is learning from the mobile drive in gaming. Rather than just bleating about how "mobile is stealing its industry" Konami is offering a chunk of its AR Combat tank game for free. Five of the 40 stages can be downloaded for nothing, and if you like those, then you can pay to download two DLC packs.

Perhaps if Namco had gone the same way with Ridge Racer, there wouldn't have been all this fuss about its own brand of DLC offering.
