What is Playstation Plus?
Playstation Plus is a subscription service available for a whole year (£39.99) or 90 days (£11.99). During your subscription, you will get access to games at exclusive discounts and even games for nothing (Instant Game Collection or IGC). Games you get for nothing will be available for you to play while you're a subscriber while games bought with a discount can be played before or after your subscription expires.
As part of the subscription, you also get access to 1GB of cloud storage and an automated update service so you get the latest patches as they're released (TBC).
How does this work?
Two games are available for an extended period of time while two other games will rotate on a monthly basis.
As of November 2012, the games available for an extended period of time are Uncharted: Golden Abyss and Gravity Rush (Note: US contents will vary).
Hold on, if I have a PS3, does that mean...
Playstation Plus is active on your account for both Vita and PS3 for a single price. You get the full IGC, cloud storage etc for the PS3 as well.
Note on Cloud Storage: You get 1GB for PS3 and 1GB for Vita.
How do I grab the "£0.00" cost games?
Simply add it to your basket and checkout. Once "purchased", the game will be on your download list and can be downloaded/played for as long as you're a member.
Can I grab games that were previously on the IGC?
Only if you "purchased" them beforehand. Otherwise, you won't be able to get them (though a discount may be available later on).
What firmware version do I need to be on?
Firmware Version 2.0 will be required for Playstation Plus.
