Official, PlayStation Plus comes to Vita

Here's the release: Its kind of annoying for existing owners as most good gamers will already have the lead two titles. I'd have thought Resistance or Unit 13 might have been a better bet?

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) announced that as part of the version 2.00 System Software Update for PlayStation®Vita (PS Vita), they will be bringing PlayStation®Plus (PS Plus), a subscription service package from PlayStation®Network, to PS Vita. Allowing fans to get even more from the world’s most powerful portable system the subscription service will be available on PS Vita from the 21st November and it will be available to existing PlayStation®3 (PS3)subscribers for no additional cost. PS Plus offers subscribers even more with the release of PS Plus on PS Vita.

NOTE: The U.S. gets a far better deal (again): Once you update your PS Vita to v2.00 and PS Store publishes next Tuesday, PS Plus members will be able to download the Instant Game Collection, which includes PS Vita games Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Jet Set Radio HD, WipEout 2048, Gravity Rush and Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack!, as well as (PSP) PlayStation Portable hit Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions.

Europe gets, as part of the Instant Game Collection, PS Vita titles including Uncharted: Golden Abyss™, Gravity Rush and Chronovolt with Mutant Blobs Attack. Members will have access to four games per month, as well as to a multitude of other perks such as free play, exclusive discounts and online storage. PS3 fans can rest assured, if they’re already a PS3 owner with an existing PS Plus membership, they will be able to enjoy PS Plus features and services on both PS3 and PS Vita - at no extra cost.

There will also be a 20% off sale for the following games:

Escape Plan
Unit 13
Hustle Kings
MotorStorm RC
Super Stardust Delta and Advanced Star Fighter Pack Bundle
Top Darts
Little Deviants
Modnation Racers: Road Trip Reality Fighters

The Instant Game Collection across both platforms means players will have a constant library of 14 games and at least five new games a month, which means over 65 games a year for PS3 and PS Vita. Gamers will also receive automatic updates with the service to ensure they are on top of the latest PS3 and PS Vita game and software updates.

Other cross platform benefits mean players can set their trophies and game saves to synchronise automatically, and access to online storage like never before will give fans up to 2GB of game saves online (1GB on PS3 and 1GB on PS Vita). Commitment to PS Plus is also convenient with subscriptions ranging from 90 days for £11.99 / €14.99 and 365 days for £39.99 / €49.99. An annual subscription available for just €49.99 will give users access to 65 games and equates to a very reasonable €4 a month.
