PlayStation Plus hits Vita next week alongside 2.00 system software update

First four Instant Game Collection games revealed.

PlayStation Plus launches on PlayStation Vita on Wednesday 21st November 2012 in Europe, Sony has announced.

It arrives alongside the 2.00 System Software update.

Plus members get Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Gravity Rush, Chronovolt and Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack as part of the Instant Game Collection. You get four games per month alongside the usual extras.

The Instant Game Collection works across both consoles so you'll have a constant library of 14 games and will get at least five new games a month, what amounts to 65 games a year for both consoles. If you already subscribe on PlayStation 3 Plus will carry over to Vita at no extra cost.

Additionally, game saves and trophies can be set to synchronise automatically. Plus nets you up to 2GB of game saves storage (1GB on PS3 and 1GB on PS Vita). Another feature is that the system will automatically start up and accept updates, so they'll be ready and installed by the time you want to use it again.

A Plus subscription ranges from 11.99 for 90 days to 39.99 for a year.
