Oh my PS Vita owners. I feel your pain. Months have passed and still no real AAA game to call our own. Yes we have a few gems here and there but nothing big to call our own. So with this update like the last update brought significant change. I love the changes in this update.

Another cool addition to this update is the addition of the PSN Plus Membership. Which I may say is about time. Now for those who are loyal PSN fans can now enjoy a free game every month. What games do we get for this joyous occasion?

Uncharted: Golden Abyss (PS Vita)

Free for Plus Members

Uncover the dark secret behind the 400-year-old massacre of a Spanish expedition and follow the murderous trail of an ancient and secret Spanish sect. Undiscovered temple ruins, vast karst caverns of Central America, legendary lost cities, fantastic action sequences, and of course, Mr. Nathan Drake himself bring this complete Uncharted experience to PS Vita.
Gravity Rush (PS Vita)

Free for Plus Members

Gain a new perspective as you take on the role of Kat, a strong-willed girl seeking the means to protect her future in a world that’s crumbling to pieces. Taking gravity into your own hands to deliver devastating attacks, uncover the secrets to your past and explore a mysterious world. One of my personal favorite PS Vita games is yours to play free with PS Plus.
WipEout 2048 (PS Vita)

Free for Plus Members

With PS Vita’s enhanced controls – including front touch, rear touch, and six-axis motion sensors, this entry into the venerable WipEout series is one of the best. Optimized for 23rd century racing, you can compete with up to 8 other players on 10 new tracks. Don’t forget to stay on top of those online leaderboards too!
Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack (PS Vita)

Free for Plus Members

One of the most unique and hilarious PS Vita titles also happens to be one of the best. A side-scrolling puzzle-platformer about an ornery mutant blob that, after being held captive in a lab that can only be described as something out of a retro sci-fi movie from the early ’50′s, escapes into the world and sets out on a path to consume everything. Use touch and the motion sensor functions combined with traditional analog stick controls to defeat the pathetic humans. Eat your way to freedom. It’s that fun.
Jet Set Radio (PS Vita)

Free for Plus Members

Tag, grind, and trick to the beat in SEGA’s hit game Jet Set Radio on PS Vita. Free for PS Plus members the same day it releases; fight for control of Tokyo-to, mark your turf with graffiti, tag walls, billboards, and even rival gang members! Perform tricks and flips on magnetically driven in-line skates, but watch out for the local police force. They’re not nice.
Final Fantasy Tactics (PS Vita, PSP)

Free for Plus Members

Originally released in 1998 on the original PlayStation, this first tactical RPG in the legendary Final Fantasy series, enthralled fans around the world with its unique artistic style and intricate storyline, and it’s certainly one of my top favorites of all time. A sublime strategy experience with an ever engrossing job system, tactical battles, tens of hours of gameplay, and remastered from the original, yours free with Plus.
Pretty awesome stuff I know. Now I know most people won’t rush to the store to buy a PS Vita now but this is a push in the right direction for those who own this little handheld and want to get more out of it.
There is also a new app for the PS Vita. Email. I know most people like me have a smart phone that does that automatically. Using Edge, 3G or 4G makes receiving emails a part of your daily routine. So having it on the Vita was kind of meh… Great feature nonetheless.
I will say that honestly the Email App works fine. Having a Gmail account made things go very smoothly. I had my account synced and ready to go. Also I was really impressed with the Wi-Fi sync. Not having to plug my Vita in my PC to transfer content is a blessing. Music just drag and drop. Download a new demo on the PC. Just sync it with my Vita. No problems. No wires. I hope that as time passes the PS Vita will find its niche. Right now it is just a bastard child looking for someone to love it.
