Vita owners are rejoicing in unison as Sony finalized plans to include Playstation Vita titles in the Playstation Plus ”Instant Game Collection.“ The company intends to roll out firmware update 2.00 for the Vita next week to accompany the additional games, which will include key feature updates like automatic trophy synching and cloud storage for the portable system.
The main attraction for Playstation Plus continues to be the Instant Game Collection, boasting a robust starting line-up with Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Gravity Rush, Wipeout 2048, Jet Set Radio HD, Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack and Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lion. Playstation 3 owners will also receive a new game as Dungeon Defenders joins the queue.
Sony's support of the Vita through the instant game collection is welcome news, particularly for those who are planning to pick up a discounted portable system on Black Friday. Playstation Plus is a subscription-based service priced at approximately $49.99 per year, but is also available as a three-month subscription for $17.99.
Will the addition of Vita games be enough to entice you to subscribe or are you already a long-term subscriber?
