    I wish I could actually use the music unlimited service, keeps saying the server is down.

    Music Unlimited really is awesome. Bye bye Spotify- Sony is the boss. 12 for a year is too good!

    So Music Unlimited is DEFINITELY awesome. That for 12 quid is probably the best deal I've ever got from Sony on anything.

    PS+ question. I found in settings / psn the area where you set up auto uploading saves, but where do you set what time you want the vita to turn on and do the downloads or does it not work like the PS3? Also, how do you pick which games saves you want uploaded?

    Glad so many folk are enjoying Music Unlimited - felt like I'd been enjoying the best kept secret in streaming music all by myself for the past year!

    DSMX - I get that warning quite often when I'm at work. Sometimes I'll have to close and restart the app a bunch of times. I think it's local network issues of some sort.

    I'm no expert, but I have a funny feeling that folk listening to Spotify on the same network can cause problems - perhaps they share the same port. I had hella trouble recently, but on Monday our CTO asked everyone to stop using Spotify due to the networking slowdown it was causing and Music Unlimited has been running fine for me since then. (Hey, he said to stop using Spotify specifically - I'm in the clear!)

    @Gregolution I assume there isn't a need for one because the network activates at certain times when the Vita is asleep...

    that said, it looks like none of my saves have been uploaded yet (since the original push)...

    I am currently in China with a Wifi only Vita. There are no free Wifi hotspots near my hotel and I have not paid for the China Mobile ones that it can see. Yet every few days it tells me there are updates available. How can it know this?

    @HiddenAway @Gregolution You need to go into Content Manager where there is now a PS+ option that let's you upload saves and stuff. You can choose what you want to cloud save here too I believe. I couldn't find anywhere that allows you to select a time for auto updates to occur, but my Vita appears to have been busy overnight and I've got a load of notifications suggesting PS+ has been doing its thing...

    When will they cycle the free games available? Start of December?

    What's the betting if I buy Everybody's Golf today it'll be free on Plus in 3 days...

    EXACTLY! I just noticed it had near discoveries in Soho. I was there the other night having dinner, don't have 3G and there were no wifi hotspots.

    When you say updates avaliable do you mean near stuff or patches? Just curious.

    I have the 3G model so always online anyway so can't comment.

    I assume it works by storing info about the Wifi spots you pass through the day (it should be able to read some info from them, even if it doesn't fully connect) and then looking up that info online once it does have a proper connection. (http://www.skyhookwireless.com/location-technology/coverage.php) Although how it's doing that look-up if you never connect to Wifi at all I have no idea.

    When in the US, my Vita seemed to gain lots of Near stuff, despite it not being online during the day (as it's only Wi-fi and doesn't connect without my permission).

    Very bizarre.

    Doesn't PS+ normally refresh on the second Wednesday of each month? Given that Vita updated later in November, I'm guessing the new games'll update just before Christmas...?

    Mortal Kombat, huh? Interesting. They certainly aren't going with games I would have expected. And I don't own this one, so that's a bonus. :p

    I love Plus, but this is stopping me buying some of the older Vita games. I had Mortal Kombat in the basket for 14 from Shopto but luckily couldn't use my accumulated reward points for back orders. Now it's gonna be free, that;s even better.

    What happens when a game is no longer part of the plus deal? Are you no longer able to play it, or can you continue to play it for as long as it's installed on your handheld?

    @Chopsen For as long as it's installed AND as long as you're a subscriber.

    Heck, you just need to add it to your download list and you can grab it whenever (again, as long as you're still a member at the time) :p

    Am I right in thinking that Uncharted and Gravity Rush will now permanently be available for Plus, and the other two titles will be recycled every month? Will MK be the only new game available next month?

    Blimey, that is quite a good deal. I've got Gravity Rush downloaded, and was thinking I'd have to play it in a rush (HA!) before some sort of DRM decided I wasn't allowed to play it anymore. So I can leave it there till I've got some time to play it properly? Cool.

    This does all seem remarkably magnanimous of sony.

    @Kay Uncharted and Gravity Rush will be available for a while (I assume a year but we haven't reached a year of this current style of PSN+). The other 2 will be cycled. Vita owners have 3 next month (Kyntt Underground, Mortal Kombat and Big Sky Infinity)

    Cheers, for some reason I overlooked those two unknown titles! I'm guessing each month will have at least one "big" game, alongside smaller ones.

    Still waiting for my 30-day trial code, but are there any good offers for a 90-day sub around? Or even a year, if it's cheap-ish.

    Sony have reduced a 1 year sub to 32.99 for the last couple of years in the Christmas sale so maybe worth waiting until then.
