Motherfucking FINALLY. After months of pissing off consumers who bought a brand-new system that’s specifically prefaced by “PlayStation,” yet doesn’t get any attention as far as PlayStation Plus goes, Sony is now seemingly considering bringing their amazingly valuable subscription program to the portable powerhouse.
Sources close to Eurogamer claim a revamp is in store during this E3 for PS+, and one that PS Vita users can benefit from. Supposedly, “Triple-A’ games will be free for subscribers on the PS3, and the Vita users will get exclusive games, DLC, cloud saving, and more. I’d be willing to pay to not rely on my PC or PS3 to backup games and saves.
It’s supposedly supposed to be a big “surprise” for Sony’s E3, but I’d call it a goddamned long wait for something that should have been there within the launch window. Not day one, mind you, but something should have reassured early adopters… Especially ones whose promised PS+ Minis don’t work on their Vitas.
Let’s just hope Sony isn’t planning on including PS1 support on Vita as a Plus exclusive, or make us re-buy our games we already paid for.
