PlayStation Plus on PS Vita Gets Timing, Instant Game Collection
PlayStation Network Director of Marketing Brandon Stander announced today that PlayStation Plus on PS Vita gets timing and is set to launch with Instant Game Collection.
To quote: We announced back at Gamescom that PlayStation Plus would be coming to PlayStation Vita (PS Vita), and today we're pleased to announce that our premium game membership will make its debut on PS Vita in November, providing an Instant Game Collection to PS Vita owners along with the same features that many of you already enjoy for PlayStataion 3 (PS3).
If you're already a PlayStation Plus member on PS3, you're in luck- you will automatically be able to also enjoy all the PlayStation Plus features for your PS Vita at no extra cost.
PlayStation Plus features for PS Vita available in November will include:
• 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.
If you don't yet own a PS Vita, there has never been a better time to invest in the most powerful portable entertainment system.
In addition to the Instant Game Collection you will be able to tap into through PlayStation Plus, PS Vita also has an arsenal of great and innovative games, like the recent hit Sound Shapes, not to mention some of the hottest upcoming titles like Assassin's Creed III: Liberation, Call of Duty: Black Ops: Declassified and LittleBigPlanet PS Vita.
So tell us-What PlayStation Plus feature are you most looking forward to taking advantage of on your PS Vita?

To me this is more of a push to prove the console is Sonys not yours. I prefer to do things when I want to NOT when Sony force me to.
And the savings with Plus are pathetic. Maybe $1 off the normal price of games. I still prefer to buy my games from the shop which is cheaper and you get that chance to sell it whenever you like.
I've always said PS+ is a FU to gamers and now Sony are opening their fingers to say FU to Vita owners now.
just need to know what are the instant game collection
If it's like the Instant Game Collection for PS3, then we should get 12 free games. But are there even 12 games for Vita?
In all seriousness though, this could be good if they give a decent number of Vita games and not just PS1 games. I don't subscribe to Plus, but if we're talking 12 games for PS3 and another 12 for Vita, I might be enticed.
