- Discounts: Access exclusive discounts on certain PS Vita titles.
- Online Game Save: Upload game save data for compatible games to Online Cloud Storage, offering up to 1GB of space.
- Automatic content downloads and updates: PS Vita will automatically download designated game demos and game updates, and also download system software updates.
- Automatic Trophy sync: PS Vita will automatically start up at a designated time to sync Trophy information across PlayStation Network servers.
