Nice, nice, nice. I will play Uncharted for free, no doubt. Very good deal.

And the ones below it are the new games for EU PS+ users? That looks like a US image.

Awesome lineup. I've been wanting to re-play Uncharted but already sold the cart, so this is a win for me. Already got Mutant Blobs, Gravity Rush and Wipeout, but looking forward to Jet Set Radio and FFT.

Definitely a pretty solid launch lineup for PS+ on Vita. While I already own UC: Golden Abyss and Mutant Blobs they're still both excellent games. Been on the fence for a while with Gravity Rush and almost picked it up a few weeks ago but held off because I wanted to see what they were doing with PS+. Timing worked perfectly, not to mention I'll be flying out the following day for Thanksgiving holidays so it'll be nice to have some new games to play while killing time at the airport/on the plane.

Yeah I do not have Mutant Blob, Uncharted, or Jet Set Radio myself, so really am digging this.

connect wirelessly to PC



Much more convenient than having to **** about removing that cable from my charging area.

So I grabbed Uncharted, Jet Set Radio, and Mutant Blob, looking forward to checking all 3 out, especially Jet Set Radio.
I also have been thinking about doing a Spotify type subscription for awhile now, so I went ahead and got the Music Unlimited Full Premium 1 Year Subscription since it is only $12 for the year. I figure for a full year of Premium, that is a pretty damn good deal.
Truly already loving this new firmware, everything seems snappier, the browser is definitely much improved, and having + now on the Vita is huge for sure.
I think I am one of the only Vita owners out there who has not a single regret picking one up at launch, and I do truly enjoy it.

Right when I logged in there were 2 + banners, so they should hopefully show up for you soon. I was actually surprised to see them when I did, usually I do not see new stuff until later on at night on a Tuesday.

Definitely not regretting my Vita purchase. It's my go-to system for when I sit on the toilet. :laugh:

So I noticed the option under Settings on my Vita to enable Automatic Downloads since I am a + subscriber.
Will this interfere with that option on my PS3 if I enable it?
Or can both devices have that going?

No, this auto-update is totally independant of the PS3 - just like the new PS+ cloud, 1gb per system...
However, to autoupload gamesaves to the cloud you have to set EACH and every title you wish to transfer automatically in the system's Content Manager.
At the moment, setting this seems to be buggy and the option doesn't save correctly. I guess there will be a new fw coming soon to fix these issues.
Moreover, this autoupdate doesn't work like the PS3 (due to the Vita's portability) - it only checks/updates when you are idle on the LiveArea and the system is NOT set to off. And finally, a notification is added to the log when an autoupdate task is completed.

PS - I too am pleased I bought my Vita 3G at launch especially since I got the preorder pack (EU only, I believe).

Showed up yesterday. Downloaded.

Kind of regret buying Uncharted and Gravity Rush now I just got them for free. I guess I can trade them in.

Nice, thanks for the reply, going to enable it now then.
That is definitely a bit of a pain with the auto saves. Is there an easy way to just say all games?

I never purchased Uncharted, so happy about that, but did purchase Gravity Rush. But honestly I did not expect them to do so many games once + for the Vita was announced, so more happy about the fact they seem to be doing a decent amount of games.

On a totally unrelated note, but not worthy of its own topic (yet at least) I purchase Sine Mora for the Vita last night. Holy hell, it is a brutally hard game. But visually awesome.
