The PS Vita will be getting an update to version 2.00 of the system software very soon, Sony have said to TheSixthAxis today. And with it, PlayStation Plus – the service that’s already seen an impressive array of discounts, additional features and free games on the PlayStation 3.
Plus for Vita goes live on the 21st of November in the UK, and will be available to existing PS3 subscribers at no additional cost. It’ll come with its own Instant Game Collection, which will include the likes of Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Gravity Rush and Chronovolt, the latter of which is a brand new title which is great news for Vita owners.
Four games per month will be featured, Sony tell us, along with free play, exclusive discounts and online storage. Sony are promising 14 games and at least five new games a month, which means over 65 games a year for PS3 and PS Vita.
We’re also assuming that Trophy updates will be automatic, like they are with the PS3, but we’ll need to check and confirm that.
