PlayStation Plus, Sony's premium online service for the PlayStation 3, is finally coming to the Vita on November 19th along with the handheld's version 2.00 firmware update. Just like the PS3, PlayStation Plus subscribers will have access to discounted games on the Vita, cloud storage capabilities, automatic trophy syncing, and the ability to schedule game and system updates.

The Instant Game Collection will also be added on November 20th, allowing subscribers to download games from a monthly-rotating selection for no additional charge. The initial Instant Game titles include Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Jet Set Radio HD, WipEout 2048, Gravity Rush, and Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack!, as well as the PlayStation Portable game Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions. Fortunately, Sony only requires one PlayStation Plus subscription for both platforms, which costs $17.99 for three months or $49.99 for a whole year.
