PlayStation Plus now on PS Vita

Sony Computer Entertainment America is bringing PlayStation Plus, the premium membership from the PlayStation Network (PSN), to the PS Vita as part of the PS Vita System Software Update (version 2.00) today.

The company is expanding the Instant Game Collection to include support for the handheld console. PS Plus members will receive six free titles for the PS Vita in addition to the 12 games currently available for the PlayStation 3.

[adsense250itp]PS Plus membership is available at a cost of $17.99 for three months and $49.99 for one year. PS3 owners with an existing PS Plus membership will get access to PS Plus features and services on the PS Vita system at no additional cost. Any PS Plus subscription purchased now allows users to access the benefits of the program for both PS Vita and PS3.

The biggest feature of PS Plus is the Instant Game Collection, which includes unlimited access to a selection of downloadable games that changes each month. Starting Tuesday, PS Plus members will be able to download PS Vita games including Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Jet Set Radio, WipEout 2048, Gravity Rush, and Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack! as well as the PSP hit Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions.

In addition, PS Plus members will get exclusive discounts on games and downloadable content, early access to betas, and automatic updates for games and the latest system software. PS Plus also gives users access to cloud storage of up to 2 GB for game saves, with  1 GB available for PS3 and 1 GB for use on the PS Vita.

The PS Vita System Software Update will also add new features and enhancements to the handheld device in addition to PS Plus. PS Vita users will be able to check and send email from their Gmail or Yahoo! account directly from the PS Vita. An enhanced web browser adds better performance and improved support for HTML 5 and JavaScript. Social networkers will love the new ability to Tweet web pages directly from the device.

A new content management system lets users wirelessly transfer content between the PS Vita and PC. Folders from the PS3 and PC can be viewed on and copied to the PS Vita.

Settings for PSone classics have also been improved. Select games have support for button mapping. Gamers can now assign controller buttons to the touchscreen and rear touch pad as well as the regular buttons. Flexible screen size options are also now available for players to adjust screen mode options.
