PlayStation Plus Adds Up To Vita

PlayStation Plus members have something good to celebrate today; Sony has announced when the Vita will be getting in on the program.

The program offers the same benefits on the Vita as it does the PlayStation 3. Sony describes:

  • Instant Game Collection: Unlimited access to a regularly refreshed selection of the full versions of games as long as your membership is active.
  • Discounts: Take advantage of exclusive discounts on games and DLC for your PS Vita.
  • Online Game Storage: An additional 1GB of online storage for game saves for PS Vita games and downloaded content.
  • Automatic Updates: PS Vita will automatically start up at a designated time to download and install select game demos and game updates as well as system software updates and start standby mode upon completion.
  • Automatic Trophy sync: Trophy information will be synched to PSN servers automatically via the PS Vita.

With the Vita’s relatively short lifespan and limited catalog, it remins to be seen what will be included in the Instant Game Collection. Still, for current subscribers, it’s a great bonus.

Me? I’d have signed up if they offered everything that everyone has been able to access, instead of just what’s available since joining. It never made sense to me to block off older content; Netflix doesn’t limit you to stuff that’s been released since you joined, after all.
