PlayStation Plus Comes To Vita In November – Includes Trophy Syncing

Sony have announced that PlayStation Plus will be coming to PlayStation Vita in November.

The service, which sees lots of free games and early access to demos and beta granted for a minimal monthly (or annual) fee, will be rolling out to Vita (it’s currently only really available on PS3) for no extra charge – if you’re a subscriber, it’s automatically on Vita too.

Details on what the Vita version will include are:

  • 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.

  1. Excellent news! If you own both a PS3 and a Vita, there is surely no excuse for passing up on plus now.

  2. Well thats me happy then amazing ive been a plus member for 2yrs now and this makes it more worth while cheers sony

  3. The cloud save thing is surely the biggie here? Current system of save files being attavhed to game means if u delete a game, you lose the save. With cloud saving you can delete a game, reinstall later and just download your save file.
    Wonder what the instant game collection will include? Hopefully not mainly minis and PSP classics.

  4. My PS+ subscription lasts until Jan I think, gives me enought time to see if including Vita in the same price (for now) detracts from PS3 content

  5. Cloud saves and some discounts is all I need. I can’t quite see the instant game collection right now for the Vita, too soon no?

  6. Excellent

  7. Depending on what next months freebies are i’ll get a 3 month sub. If next months freebies are pants (or I already have them) (or i don’t want them) i’ll sub in November. With very little time to spend on gaming these days, I can’t justify PS+ when none of the content gets played.

  8. that’s great, i hope i’ll be able to add them to my download list, for when i do get a Vita, maybe i’ll get myself one for christmas. ^_^
    because i doubt anybody else will buy me one. :(

  9. Let’s see what they will offer. I have quite a few games on my Vita and haven’t even played all of them so chances are they will give us games that I already own.

  10. Tis a shame the Vita’s going on ebay, but I just don’t use it.
