Current PlayStation Plus subscribers won't need to pay a penny to access the service on Vita, Sony has announced. The handheld iteration of the popular service will launch in November – and will come with all of the perks members have come to expect.

Players can anticipate complimentary access to Vita games, discounts on a range of digital titles, and an additional 1GB of online cloud save storage. Subscribers will also be given the option to switch on an automatic update feature, which will prompt the handheld to download software updates and sync Trophies while the system is not in use.

More details about the Vita version of PlayStation Plus are expected in the lead up to launch. In the meantime, let us know which titles you'd like to see given away in the comments section below.

This is so awesome. I was certain it would cost extra for existing subscribers. If you own a PS3 and Vita, there's really no reason not to join Plus now.

I totally agree! I cannot wait but the only issue is that I will soon run out of space!

I didn't know what to expect when they said plus was coming to Vita, but the fact that they are calling it an instant game collection is very exciting. I'm sure they'll give away some games I already have, but here's what I would like them to give away:

Escape Plan
Pinball Arcade
Plants vs Zombies
Dungeon Hunter Alliance
Hot Shots Golf
Super Stardust
Mortal Kombat
Some Zen Pinball tables

@get2sammyb: Really? I never seriously entertained that notion...I think Sony's been quite clear about maximizing value for PS3/Vita gamers. When they're willing to run Cross Buy, it's crazy to think they'd charge a little more for cross PS Plus.

What I'm really looking forward to is finally having a way to back up save data...sounds like we'll be able to do so without copying the entire game, otherwise a gig would be worthless...that fix has been needed since Vita launch, and anybody with a Vita who DOESN'T get PS Plus for that alone is insane.
