During gamescom, Sony announced plans to bring its PlayStation Plus service to the Vita handheld. Well, we can now expect to see the paid membership arrive on handheld in November.
If you already pay for PlayStation Plus on PS3, don't worry. Your membership should automatically transfer over to the Vita, if you also happen to own Sony's touch-happy handheld.
Here's a rundown of what Plus for the Vita entails, which pretty much covers what the Plus on PS3 already has:
Instant Game Collection: Unlimited access to a regularly refreshed selection of the full versions of games as long as your membership is active.
Discounts: Take advantage of exclusive discounts on games and DLC for your PS Vita.
Online Game Storage: An additional 1GB of online storage for game saves for PS Vita games and downloaded content.
Automatic Updates: PS Vita will automatically start up at a designated time to download and install select game demos and game updates as well as system software updates and start standby mode upon completion.
Automatic Trophy sync: Trophy information will be synched to PSN servers automatically via the PS Vita.

I got my Vita a few weeks ago and will probably wait until PS+ is released to buy anything

Im all for game cards so this does not really impress me. But it's still a great move from Sony for digital download buyers =D.

PS Plus is one of the few brilliant things Sony did this gen. It shits all over Xbox Live in terms of goodies and I won't talk about lag since Axe is the posterboy of how useless XBL is when it comes to doing...well anything that requires and internet connection.

Digital downloads are just gimmick...90% of gamers buy physical copies for Vita!

PS Plus is really shaping up into something worthwhile. Should be a great value for anyone with both, makes sense after all thats been Sony's target from the get go.
Now if only memory card prices were more reasonable to take advantage of all the downloads.
