PlayStation Vita owners will get access this November to the promised PlayStation Plus program, previously exclusive to Sony’s PlayStation 3 console. Like on PS3, Vita PS Plus subscribers will get “free games, receive discounts for select titles, and enjoy other benefits unique to the service.” Sony detailed some of those unique benefits on its US blog, including “Instant Game Collection” (free games), “Discounts” (um … discounts), “Online Game Storage” (1GB of cloud storage for game saves and DLC), “Automatic Updates” (auto-start and download/install of game demos and updates), and “Automatic Trophy sync” (which syncs your earned Trophies to PSN).
