PlayStation Plus Update: Instant Game Collection Comes to PS Vita

Posted by Morgan Haro // Community Manager, PlayStation Digital Platforms -

This is the week we’ve been waiting for as PS Vita officially joins the PlayStation Plus membership with the Instant Game Collection, which now delivers six PS Vita titles in addition to the lineup of 12 PS3 Games. Don’t forget that in addition to the free games that come with your membership, PS Plus also delivers PS Vita benefits such as discounts, online storage for game saves, Automatic Updates, and auto Trophy sync! (Dungeon Defenders, Final Fantasy Tactics, Gravity Rush, Jet Set Radio, PS Vita, PS3, Sonic, Sonic 2, Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Wipeout 2048)

I already have all those games.. so... no ps+ for now!!
Neo Nugget  +   769d ago
PS+ on Vita doesn't *just* give you free games, ya know.
Baylex  +   769d ago
Yeah I now... but if you have or if you're going to get ps+, it's not because of the free games? Yes it is! So I repeat,no ps+ for now until I see that it brings me good stuff.
guitarded77  +   769d ago
Man, if someone doesn't have a Vita, this is the week to get one with the $200 Vita/game bundles and PS+ giving away some awesome games. I almost wish I had waited... but the Vita has saved me so much boredom when I have to wait at meetings, work, school, etc.
FunAndGun  +   769d ago

I'm getting one on black friday for sure.
ABizzel1  +   769d ago

Then download the games and sale your copies. Win-win.


I know, I wish I had waited as well, maybe I can get my money back. Still have the receipt from February :D

Credit to Laticspieman. For all you PS Plus members, I have it on good authority that we’ll be getting Uncharted 3 next month along with Resistance 3, Killzone 3, Limbo, Star Wars Force Unleashed, God of War Origins, BLOPS 1, Journey, Deathspank, Burnout chase, Ghost Recon: Future Soldier , SOCOM 4, RE4, Code Veronica X, and Mortal Kombat some time in the near future!

Check out the short PS Plus montage after 1:25. It clearly shows games that have already been on PS Plus(RDR, Borderlands, Scott Pilgrim, Starhawk etc.). The montage is clearly an indicator of the free games that will eventually make it to the service.

Btw, I highly recommend any PS Plus members to download Payday: The Heist. Awesome AWESOME game!

HammadTheBeast  +   769d ago
IF this is true. Then I almost feel bad for taking this much stuff for only $50 A YEAR!!! Makes it seem like XBL owners are getting robbed blind.
Bowzabub  +   769d ago
Fawking wow!
jrbeerman11  +   769d ago
Im now sold on black friday vita bundle and plus membership.
dkeat  +   768d ago
For U.S.?
Hicken  +   769d ago
Do you have all the discounts, too? And the automatic updates, and the cloud saves.

No, probably not.
xursz  +   769d ago
cloud saves are going to be a blessing for sure.
Shikoro  +   769d ago
Yes, everything is there just like for the PS3. The Vita automatic update is just perfect since I almost always have it on standby so it doesn't even need to turn itself on. Can't wait for the firmware to hit in a few hours. :D
Baylex  +   769d ago
All those disagrees are because you people doesnt have all those games ahah I have so suck it up!!
WetN00dle69  +   769d ago
Aceman18  +   769d ago
i think they r disagreeing because if u have PS+ on ur PS3 you'll automatically have it on the vita, so ur comment was kinda useless in a way.

its great that its coming to vita with all the benefits the PS3 gets.
showtimefolks  +   769d ago
Everyone is starting to realize how much value there is with psn:plus. Next gen ms better have something special otherwise if psn stays free and psn:plus offers great content from day one on ps4 than xblive will get a run for ts money

When I signed up for psn:p,us around e3 I got more than $100 worth of free stuff within first month for a service that costs $5 a month

People who hate on psn:p,us are the same ones who don't mind paying for xblive
for we are many  +   769d ago
Same here, I have all those games, besides, I already have PS3 Plus

LOLOLLOLLOLLOLOL on the disagrees Baylex got, he merely said HE will not get Plus FOR NOW, because he already HAVE those games, and some of you disagree-rs may not have Vita or PS3 Plus in the first place. Damn, those people just WORSHIP Sony !!
violents  +   769d ago
If you have plus on yur ps3 already than you have it on the vita too. Your premium membership is connected to your login not the device.
for we are many  +   769d ago
@ Violents: I know this, and I didn't say that Plus is a bad service espicially if you do NOT have a vast game collection already purchased, I was just expressing my amusement over the counter-common-sense disagrees Baylex got and how it reflects the rabid responses from Sony fanboys which plague this website.
IRetrouk  +   769d ago
You think its only sony fanboys on this site? How long have you used n4g for? I didnt hit disagree but i do disagree because ps plus is a brill service thats worth every penny. If you have the games sell them and then download them. Simple really
violents  +   768d ago
I wasn't disagreeing i was just adding my two cents. PS plus is awsome My vita games just doubled!
Blastoise  +   769d ago
Dungeon defenders is a pretty cool game, hopefully this will mean more people are online
sashimi  +   769d ago
I have most of those games but music unlimited and sorcery seems like deals i should pick up. Hopefully ppl are willing to take the plunge with psn plus & Ps vita combo.
LOGICWINS  +   769d ago
Sorcery will most likely be free on PS Plus a couple months down the line. Even at $12, I wouldn't get Music Unlimited personally. If I wanna listen to music I'll just use my free Pandora/Youtube apps.
Peppy la Moca  +   769d ago
Newegg has Sorcery for $10
sashimi  +   769d ago
^^thanks for the heads up, i just got Sorcery off newegg. Hopefully it'll arrive b4 thanksgiving so me and my friends can chill and have fun with it.

Also i know i could always listen to music on youtube or Pandora but i like its offline feature and depending on its Asian catalog i might just pick it up.
LOGICWINS  +   769d ago
Yeah, for offline, Music Unlimited just might be for you :)
1Victor  +   769d ago
link please.
we plus members are been spoiled compared to other services
GTAallday  +   769d ago
Jet Set Radio.
blusoops  +   769d ago
$12 for music unlimited seems like a steal.
I'll definitely try it. Plus u can store songs on the vita for playback while not on a network. Too good to pass up...
abzdine  +   769d ago
very annoying no WipEout in Europe !!!
dark-hollow  +   769d ago
Am so glad I didn't buy gravity rush yet.
MasterCornholio  +   769d ago
I cant wait for it but it sucks that europe isn´t getting wipeout or jet set radio for free with plus.
Acquiesc3  +   769d ago
More people should get in on this. It's a fantastic deal.

MultiConsoleGamer  +   769d ago
Amazing deal! But you better get a bigger memory card.
violents  +   769d ago
I know, they are so expensive too. Frowny face.
Pillsbury1  +   769d ago
Or if you have a ps3 you can manage downloads and hold whatever game you want to play on the memory card and then transfer them out. I have a very small memory card so I'm just gonna put one game at a time from ps plus.
violents  +   768d ago
Oh yeah for sure. I still just have the original memory card so I'm pretty limited on space myself. I'm prob gunna buy a bigger one soon(hoping for holiday deals)though.
stage88  +   769d ago
And Sony hits it out of the park again!

Love Playstation plus, best service around.
Zeixama  +   769d ago
Actually this PSN+ is maturing into some sort of stealthy "play many video games that you can devour with a fair monthly membership fee" and plus Steam. Only missing in this pack is Modding Layer for hardcore gamers who like messing up with their lovely video games. Like Steam Workshop, Elder Scrolls mods.
rainslacker  +   769d ago
I've been pretty impressed with PS+ myself. It's an unbelievable value IMO. It really makes me wonder if they're mentally preparing us for whatever they plan on doing with Gaikai. Realistically they could offer half of what they do and people would still think it's a great value. But I believe they are getting people ready to go all digital, or be used to playing online for streaming purposes.
Ryo-Hazuki  +   769d ago
PS Plus added to Vita pushed me over the edge to buy the Vita today. Gravity rush was always a game I wanted to play
chrisarsenalsavart  +   769d ago
Enjoy your vita!
rainslacker  +   769d ago
Never regretted buying mine the first week. It's a great system with lots of great games to play.

Have fun.:)
AusRogo  +   769d ago
Yep, when I go down to Melbourne this weekend im picking up the AC3 Liberation bundle. Now this, perfect time to pick up a vita, definatly!
insomnium2  +   769d ago
I just got a Vita too and it seems this offer is too good to pass up so I'm singining up as a plus member. I have only SSD Delta and Everybody's golf for my vita and I played and liked the demos for Gravity rush and Uncharted. This is way too good to pass up.

Let me just check that once I've purchased the free + games I have them forever available in my DL list as long as my PSN+ account is paid for right?

Godchild1020  +   769d ago
As long as you are a member of Playstation Plus, you will always have access to them. Even if do delete them, they will stay in your DL list and be able to play when you're ready to DL them again. Again as long as you are a Plus Member.
Hanso  +   769d ago
you will love Gravity Rush

i know i do xD
Y_5150  +   769d ago
Holy crap! I think I'll buy a Vita and PS plus year subscription then I'll be set!
(Probably a memory card as well.)
phatfreddy1978  +   769d ago
Nice I can't wait for Gravity Rush,Wipeout and FF tactics throwback Jetset I'm Happy Happy.
chrisarsenalsavart  +   769d ago
Just bought my second vita.( the white assaszin creed special edition for only £199.00
love that machine so much.
need for speed and assassin creed are my two favourite games so far and regardless what the sales figures says, vita will prove people wrong.
strigoi814  +   769d ago
Ps+ has cloud saving in the future for vita...so why do some of you guys still raging about the memory card?
boybato  +   769d ago
Maybe because of the free games? i know you could click download and umm.. download it later but it's a hassle.

I guess every Vita owner would agree that the memory card is overpriced. right?
rainslacker  +   769d ago
I agree. It's the only bad thing about the Vita I think. I understand why they do it for piracy reasons, still seems unwarranted to be that expensive though. If they were half the price I think it would be OK though.
aquamala  +   768d ago
Uncharted is 3.3GB, Gravity Rush, Wipeout are 1GB+, so if you only have a 4GB card you already can't fit these initial "free" games on one card, and barely fits with a 8GB card.
sdozzo  +   769d ago
Playstation is doing itself right with this PS+
Pillsbury1  +   769d ago
Yes! Finally! Time to give my vita even more love! Ps plus is awesome!
Silly gameAr  +   769d ago
I hope they kind up with the non-gaming related perks like Music Unlimited. Some movies would kick as%.
Gaming_Guru  +   769d ago
I love the PlayStation Plus Sony has come up with, it reminds me of Netflix but for gaming. Unlike Netflix rotating movies per month, the games are available throughout the subscription. The the special offers is just icing on the cake, I just hope Black Ops 2 has a PlayStation Plus special with DLC.
Arctura  +   769d ago
When I can change my PSN ID, I'll gladly update to PS+
WeAreLegion  +   769d ago
It's not Sony's fault you suck at choosing an ID.
violents  +   768d ago
you could just start a new account all together and just make sure you choose wisely this time.
Heavenly King  +   769d ago
For me PS+ is worth it just because of the Cloud storage. Everything else for me is Plus XD
Gamer1982  +   769d ago
Me too I buy purely for cloud storage as nothing worse than losing your saves. Hope the Music deal comes to EU this month though I fancy a new unlimited service now spotifys ran out.
SAE  +   769d ago
im using ps vita browzer , its sooo fast now ^^
finally they do something right , now they need to let us play videos in the browser and change the picture of the app because its ugly
Sugreev2001  +   768d ago
Wow ! I'm so glad to be a plus member.Definitely downloading the Tales from Space,Gravity Rush and Jet Set Radio.I already own Uncharted:GA.
paddystan  +   768d ago
Microsoft and Xbox LIVE can kiss my ass, cancelled Gold some weeks ago, never regretet it.

Sony values and cares about their customers. It's not always I feel that Im robbing a company because their subsciption is so good.
tubers  +   768d ago
If I have PS Plus for the VITA.. would that apply to my PS3 too?

How many games am I allowed at a time? Can I download and play all those games at the same time?
Stephen5543  +   768d ago
Plus is a service. So now that PS Plus is supporting the Vita, members of Plus will have access to all the offers that Plus is currently doing at the moment provided you have the systems (which you do).

You are able to download and play all free games that are currently available. You can play those games as much as you want, but with free games, once your PS Plus service runs out, you will not be able to play them anymore. However, if your subscription expires, and you later renew your account, you will be able to play those games again.

Themes, Avatars, and anything you pay for with a discount, you will be able to use even after your membership has expired.
Gaikai will be the icing on the cake. ps4 games on the go on vita?
