If you don’t Rush you’ll be WipEd Out.
As well as the 2.00 firmware next week, we have finally been told details of the PlayStation Plus service which is now also will now be available on the Vita.
As broken to us on the European PS Blog, PlayStation Plus will be making its way to us next week. For a yearly cost of £39.99 (or a quarterly one of £11.99) you will get access to many games as part of your subscription, under the Instant Games Collection banner and starts with Uncharted: Golden Abyss and Gravity Rush! For as long as your subscription is active you can access and play these great titles as much as you want. That’s not all though, included in this price you will get 1GB of cloud storage for your gamesaves, and will feature trophy syncing as standard and automatic updating. Even better, those of you that already have PlayStation Plus as part of your PS3 experience can benefit from this under your existing subscription with no added charge. Both platforms for one price!
Also included in the games list are Chronovolt, which is a brand new 3D puzzle platformer game and Tales from Space: Mutand Blobs Attack.
As an added bonus, in the EU we will also get a 20% discount of the following titles if we are plus subscribers for the first week.
- 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
Over the other side of the Atlantic you won’t be getting Chronovolt, but instead you will get WipEout 2048, Jet Set Radio which finally launches next week and the PSP title Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions as part of the collection as revealed on the US PS Blog and comes on the 19th. The price in the US for PS Plus is $49.99 for the year or $17.99 for three months.
What do you make of this news? The PS Plus subscription has proved very popular on the PS3 and serves as a great way to enhance your game library for a very reasonable price, and this could serve as a nice bonus entry point to the Vita game library, and could be another draw to those that had been sitting on the fence.
