PS Plus on Vita? Yes, Please

PlayStation Blog:

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.

Having Golden Abyss and Gravity Rush available for free with Plus just basically made the $50 I spent on Plus this year worth it.

I’ve been critical of Sony’s online strategy in the past—and still am, but what they are doing with PS Plus and (specifically) downloadables is a great bargain.
