PlayStation Plus, the subscription service package on the PlayStation Network, is set to be available for PS Vita this November.
By purchasing a PlayStation Plus membership on the PlayStation Store, PS Vita owners will be able to play free games, receive discounts for selected titles, and enjoy other benefits exclusive to the service. PS3 owners with existing PlayStation Plus memberships, along with first time members through PS Vita, will get to enjoy PlayStation Plus features and services on both PS3 and PS Vita systems at no extra cost.
Members can upload (both automatically and manually) game save data files for compatible games to Online Game Save Storage with 1GB of space on the PlayStation Network. Also, PS Vita will automatically download designated game demos and game updates, entering standby mode after the download has completed. It has the ability to automatically start up at a designated time to sync Trophy information with PlayStation Network servers.
A variety of convenient PlayStation Plus subscription options will be available in each country and region, including a 30 day plan (Japan: JPY$500, Asia: HK$38), a 90 day plan (North America: US$17.99, Europe: EUR$14.99) and a 365 day plan (Japan: JPY$5,000, Asia: HK$233, North America: US$49.99, Europe: EUR$49.99).
