Yesterday was a big day for Vita gamers as Sony announced all the details for the Vita’s PlayStation Plus which will be available next Monday.. While some may argue that the Vita’s Instant Game Collection offerings are better than that of the PS3, one thing’s for sure, people are happy.
Following yesterday’s announcement, sales for the 32GB Vita memory card have jumped 148%. Amazon also shows that one-year subscriptions for PlayStation Plus have increased by 113% in the last 24 hours. It’s also worth noting that Amazon has discounted the 32GB memory card to $80, which is considerably cheaper than its $100 MSRP.
These sales showcase just how important PlayStation Plus has become to the struggling giant. With PlayStation Plus on its way to the Vita, it’s only a matter of time until we see a bigger memory card introduced into the ecosystem.
