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).
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?
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.
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.
