Following the launch update that hit Europe a few hours ago, the US PlayStation Vita store just got its own barrage of new content to commemorate the global launch. There's a Netflix app alongside the Twitter and Flickr apps that were released in Japan and Europe previously, but for some reason it looks like US users will have to wait for Facebook and Foursquare support. Other free content includes the augmented reality titles Fireworks, Table Soccer and Cliff Diving, some of which we checked out at CES.

There's also various DLC including a $0.99 treasure map for Uncharted: Golden Abyss, and a selection of new Vita titles which you can check out below:

  • Army Corps of Hell ($39.99)
  • Ben 10 Galactic Racing ($29.99)
  • Dynasty Warriors Next ($34.99)
  • Hustle Kings ($9.99)
  • Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus ($34.99)
  • Plants Vs Zombies ($14.99)
  • Shinobido 2: Revenge of Zen ($34.99)
  • Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack ($7.99)
  • Touch My Katamari ($24.99)

With all this potential damage to your wallet, you might well be concerned about damage to your brand new $250-$300 console as well. Thankfully, Sony has kindly provided the option to buy one or two years' extended warranty for $29.99-$39.99, along with an accidental damage plan for $44.99-$69.99.
