Monday, November 19th, Vita Firmware 2.00 will go live and show PlayStation Plus functionality – along with allowing Vitas to check Gmail and Yahoo email, wirelessly communicate with PCs, tweak PSone game settings, and use the web browser more effectively. Then, when the PlayStation Store updates on Tuesday, November 20th, the first round of free-to-PlayStation Plus subscriber Vita games will be available.
PlayStation Vita’s PlayStation Plus 11/20 Lineup
- Uncharted: Golden Abyss
- WipEout 2048
- Gravity Rush
- Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack
- Jet Set Radio
- And the PSP title Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions
All of these details are specific to North America. Folks in Europe get a slightly less enticing (but still rather good) deal with just Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Gravity Rush, Chronovolt and Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack thrown in, with full details of EU's offer found on the PlayStation Blog here. A similar deal for AU is expected to be announced soon.
PlayStation Plus cost $49.99 for a year or $17.99 for three months. Do you think the service is worth it? Let us know in the comments below.
