PlayStation Plus Shows Up On Vita At Last

Well, PS+ comes in November, but that's pretty soon!

We been quietly lamenting the lack of PS+ on the Vita around the office for months now. Every once in a while Sam will emerge from his office, shuffling his feet and mumbling about cloud saves and automatic syncing of his precious trophies. Scott will shake his head and silently mouth the words "pipe dream" to Vin as Sam heads back in.

Sammy had the last laugh today though, as news broke at the Tokyo Game Show that the highly lauded PlayStation Plus service (keeping gamers in free games for over a year now) would now have a Vita counterpart.

How much would you expect to pay for this new service, which will feature all the same befits of its PS3 iteration like cloud saving (now up to 1GB!), automatic updates and trophy syncing, discounts of games and, yes, 100% free full games? Well, if you already have PS+ for your PS3, then you've already got it for your Vita too, at no extra charge!

If you don't already have the service, the price remains the same as it has been, $17.99 for 3 months or $49.99 for the year. Sony recently promised to rededicate themselves to the service, and they've done just that with dozens of free games like Just Cause 2, Borderlands, and Pac-Man Championship Edition DX among many others. You get to keep those games as long as you keep the service, so don't go thinking these games will come and go.

If you're a PS3 and Vita owner, you should probably sign up for the service some point between now and November, when it will go live on the Vita. Heck, even if you only have one of the systems, you should go for the service. It's one of the best deals going!
