Report – Sony to announce Plus revamp with Vita integration at E3

Tuesday, 29th May 2012 19:43 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Sources close to Eurogamer has said Sony is planning to announce a revamp of PS Plus during its E3 press conference on Monday, along with “proper integration,” of the service on PS Vita.

According to multiple sources, the firm plans to offer top tier games for free through PS3 while Vita exclusive titles, DLC and cloud services on the handheld will allow for on the go saves and downloads.

A SCEE spokesperson declined to comment, but PlayStation Plus content manager Ross McGrath indicated on Twitter that “now is the time,” to become a Plus member if you weren’t already.

Earlier this month, an online survey suggested Sony was feeling the waters on offering new tiers to its premium service. Options included how often games are updated to the catalog, number of new games per year, quality of games and more with pricing indicative of the tier’s size.

    ^ Yeah, they should have included Vita in Plus long before Vita was actually out or even announced.

    On a side note, does Sony have ANYTHING NEW left for E3? They seem to be most leaky before E3. If they show something new at E3, I would be surprised.

    @3, Quantic Dream new game probably is going to be something special i think.

    @3 Well let’s face it, at the end of the day E3 is all about getting to see new gameplay footage and there’ll be plenty of that coming from Sony with games like The Last of Us and GOW:A. Having said that, I do believe Sony still has some secret stuff planned, maybe something tied with GTA5 or a new IP no one saw coming. We’ll see…

    @2 Exactly. Store on Vita is actually garbage overall. I buy stuff for my Vita via PS3. Which speaks volumes of how usable Vita store is.

    Vita integration for Plus Is a bit of no-brainer. Interested to see what more they’ll be offering.
