PlayStation Plus will launch for PS Vita on November 21, priced £39.99 a year, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe has announced.

The good news is that existing PS Plus members on PS3 can enjoy the benefits of PS Plus on Vita at no extra cost.

On Vita PS Plus provides 1GB of online storage – in addition to the 1GB currently offered on PS3 – and automatic updating. These features will be implemented as part of the v2.00 update.

Sony is really delivering on the free games front, offering four titles at no cost during the launch period. The headliners are Uncharted: Golden Abyss and Gravity Rush, which will be joined by Chronovolt and Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack. As on PS3 these titles will be updated on a regular basis, with Sony stating that PS Plus members will always have access to a minimum of 14 games a month across PS3 and Vita.

As an added launch bonus, Sony is offering a 20 per cent discount on a range of PS Vita games for the first week following the launch of PS Plus Vita.

Titles to be included are:

  • Escape Plan
  • Unit 13
  • Hustle Kings
  • MotorStorm RC
  • Super Stardust Delta and Advanced Star Fighter Pack Bundle
  • Top Darts
  • Little Deviants
  • Modnation Racers: Road Trip
  • Reality Fighters

I had £140 put back for it and a pre-order as soon as they were available, but the £140 went on the Tab 2 7.0, so I'm starting again from scratch.

I always price match in GAME against CEX and HMV. Uncharted GA is £13 in CEX at the moment.

Thats rubbish Game are so harsh on there trade in offers i bet thats about £7 cash value. I bet CEX would offer a fair bit more so get the proof and go back to Game and there supposed to beat it with there "beat any trade in" policy.

I would suggest using the price checker still as I just checked the prices for Saints 3 and Max Payne 3 with both being a fiver each just in credit!

When I have seen them both go for way more still on eBay.

Right, Uncharted GA is going in to GAME tomorrow to re-start my Wii U fund.

Dammit! Paid full price for Gravity Rush and barely touched it... Oh well, not much room to download stuff anyway, so good thing I've got the card! Uncharted will be good to have a go though. Yay!

This is bloody brilliant i only have mutant blob out of all them. Now i'm gonna get some top games for free! how could that ever be a bad thing in fact it could be Vita's saviour.
Sony's main aim at this point is to make the vita look as attractive as possible and encourage new consumers and i'm sure this will turn some heads. Good move Sony and thank you for offering such great value for my very small subs.

Yeah it's clearly solely about getting those who wouldn't touch it buy it. Uncharted and Gravity Rush for free (as it's part of my sub anyway) is very tempting!

Esspecially with Game's 230 quid pre order offer

Bundle contents:
Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified bundle, includes:
PlayStation Vita WiFi console (with CoD Black Ops Declassified logo on rear touchpad)
Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified (download voucher code)

FIFA 13 Vita game
Need for Speed Most Wanted Vita game
The Amazing Spider-Man film
4GB Vita Memory Card
Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified carry pouch

Not sure if this is a good or bad thing. It's great for the consumers, because they are getting a couple of the best games on vita for free. But from a business stand point, giving away a couple of the best game from a platform that has few games could be be a bad move. I guess their playing by the idea that the majority of the people who own a vita will own these games anyway.
