"During Tokyo Game Show we announced that PlayStation Plus would be coming to PlayStation Vita in November. We are excited to reveal that PS Plus will be available on November 19th as part of the next PS Vita System Software Update (v2.00).

I teamed up with Ray Bautista, Product Manager of Digital Platforms Strategic Planning to give you a sneak peek at the Instant Game Collection for PS Vita and all of the benefits and features that PS Plus has to offer. Today I'll walk you through some of the other new features you can look forward to with the system software update, including an email app, the ability to transfer content wirelessly between your PS Vita and PC, and enhancements to the web browser.

With the addition of PS Plus, and such a great lineup of exclusive games launching by this holiday, now is the perfect time to purchase a PS Vita.

As Ray mentioned, PS Plus will offer exclusive discounts and bonus features for both PS Vita and PlayStation 3 members. In addition to online storage for game saves, automatic updates and Trophy synching, PS Plus members will get access to the Instant Game Collection, a constantly updated library selection of games, starting when the PlayStation Store updates on Tuesday, November 20th.

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.

Don't forget that PS3 users with an existing PS Plus membership will be able to enjoy PS Plus features and services on both PS3 and PS Vita systems at no additional cost. You will be able to choose between the two subscription options - a three month plan for $17.99 and a one year plan for $49.99.

For more information on System Software Updates, please visit this page, which will provide additional details on v2.00 when the update goes live."

These games are only "free" for as long as you are a Plus member, correct?

Smart move. I'm not too bummed out about buying Uncharted though since I've already played it 4 times, I feel like I've got my money's worth.

Wow, that's quite the deal. PSP games are going to be "free" via Plus too? Damn, maybe I got rid of my system too early.

Holy crap! That's a great selection. I've come close to buying Uncharted and Gravity Rush a few times, and the others look good too.

Posted on Nov 13, 2012 8:34:13 AM PST
Goddamnit, I paid $15 for U:GA 3 weeks ago.
Other than that.., HELL YEAH.

Nice. I dont have a vita, but I think I will que these up just in case I get one sometime soon.

Someone memo MS about how premium memberships are REALLY made.

Chocolette says:
Gravity rush and uncharted make up the $50 plus fee already. And I wanted that 32gb mem card anyway. This is so wonderful.

I already bought half of those (Wipeout, Tales from Space, and FFT), but I'm still super stoked about this because of the other half (Uncharted, JSR, Gravity Rush). Definitely time to pick up a new memory card...

Posted on Nov 13, 2012 8:42:26 AM PST
Well I own Uncharted and Tales from Space but the rest will be a nice addition to the vita lineup. Excited about Gravity Rush!

Posted on Nov 13, 2012 8:45:23 AM PST
This is fantastic news! And the fact that you don't have to pay anything extra to have PS+ on the Vita and PS3 is almost overly generous!

Get those 32 GB cards ready!

Posted on Nov 13, 2012 8:46:50 AM PST
That's a great selection of games. $50 to rent all those for a year is a great value.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 13, 2012 8:47:26 AM PST
Garion, meet me in the bathroom at the Minneapolis airport and bring a 32 GB card. I'll do whatever.

That's a pretty great list. Thanks for the update!

Great news!! The only game I already own on the list is Gravity Rush. This is really an awesome deal. PS+ has become a must have service imo.

That Emu Kid says:
This is a ridiculous value if you have a PS3 and Vita. For $50 it's a total of 18 titles plus all the discounts and whatever new games they switch in for the rest of the year.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 13, 2012 8:51:44 AM PST
That is has. Between the "free" games on PS3 and PS Vita, there's almost no reason to buy games...

Can't wait to see Jason complain/nitpick about it!

Posted on Nov 13, 2012 8:52:40 AM PST
Nice! Gravity Rush is the only one I own as well.

What do you think, Keller? Are you getting a Veetor now?
