Riding in next month

PlayStation Plus is coming to the PlayStation Vita, Sony announced during its GamesCom 2012 press conference earlier today.

While Sony was coy about the specifics of the service's implementation, Vita owners can look forward to the prospect of discounts and freebies in the not-so-distant future.

It was also announced that Rockstar San Diego's Red Dead Redemption will be receiving the PlayStation Plus treatment, becoming a free download for European subscribers in September.
