    It's like this thing which you sign up and pay for (for a set amt of time. 90 days or 1 year) which grants you access to certain privileges as you mentioned such as DLing some Vita games. And allow you an hour's trial period on selected games. That's pretty much it.

    The games rotate out, right? Like the games you download are only playable for a month until the next set rotates in. That's what I thought.

    I mean either way it's pretty nice though.

    Also not mentioned was you get 1GB of cloud storage for save games and such. Also some early access to digital purchases and discounts on the store.

    If you get a free game from PSN plus think of it as a rental. When you stop you PSN+ subscription you no longer have the game. When you restart the subscription you get those titles back plus whatever else is up for grabs that week/month.

    As said above all discounted games you buy you get to keep, however if you are getting a service discounted off of PSN or for free. Be ready to feel the sting of auto payment if you use it.

    Games rotate in and out, although there's no set amount of time for any given game before it leaves. However, if you download a game (or really, put it in your cart as free and checked out with it), you can play it and redownload it as often as you'd like as long as your a member, even if it's rotated out of the free game collection.

    If you're interested in paying for the PS+ service, I'd recommend thinking about getting a PS3 too. I've had a PS3 for a few years now with PS+ and my game list is pretty big thanks to that. Now that the PSVita will start getting games as well, I'm tempted to get a WiFi model with a large memory card for games. It's not like I'd end up paying more for free games on another console :D

    ps. Are PSP games included also in the packages? I know that PSX games do come for free with PS+. I'd love to use dual analogs on the go for most PSX games!

    For North American users there's one PSP game available on PS+ (Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions) for PSP and Vita use. I don't think PSX games are included in the rotations anymore, although I could be wrong. There's no Minis or PSX games right now, though.
