You know what's better than cheap gaming? Free gaming. And we're not talking free-to-play, or free with ads - we're talking full-on, put that wallet away gaming.

With that in mind, PS Vita owners will get a treat later this month when five games are made available for free to download... for PS Plus subscribers. There's always a catch, right?

Grasshopper Manufacture ran a student development program earlier this year, in which nine student teams were given Vita development kits and told to make games. Five of those teams were successful, and those five games will be released on June 21 for free via PSN.

The five games, in case you were wondering, are called Uni Uni Union, Eledive, Octalide, Volt and Mou, Sou Suru Shika Nai!! reports Andriasang. Alas, there is no word yet on whether these games will be available to us in the West, or whether they are staying firming in Japan.

We will, of course, let you know the moment we've had word. Still, it's a definite step in the right direction, and hopefully signals the start of PS Plus offers on the Vita.
