PS Plus & Vita

6 replies 121 views Edited Nov 20, 2012
I'm an Xbox guy so I'm unfamiliar with the premium service. For the Vita, if they are offering the downloadable games, do you own them? When the games change(do they)do you lose the previous round of games? Not quite sure how it all works.

A select number of games are added to the store. Whatever you download (or purchase for free and don't download) is in your account forever. As long as you're subscribed, that content is yours to use and download whenever you want. As soon as your subscription lapses, the games become unplayable until you resubscribe.

To add to what johngie has already said, the free games do change. There will be new ones added, replacing a current free game. As long as you check-out with the free games in your cart (you don't have to immediately download them) they are yours to keep as long as you stay subscribed to Playstation Plus. For $50 a year it's a great deal, the six free games coming in the first Plus update are worth more than that. Also if you ever decided to get a PS3 you would get those Plus benefits also.

Gotcha. Seems like a great deal. How often do the games change?

Usually once every two weeks, or as frequent as every week.

It's usually like one or two a month. It seems like it's been more since the instant game collection came out though.

On the PS3 it has been 3-4 games a month, we've gotten a new game each week for the last few weeks. On the Vita, no one knows yet since it starts with today's update. Hopefully 3-4 a month.
