PS Vita 3G Data Plans Announced In USPlatforms: Sony PS Vita
Excited by the PS Vita? We are at The Digital Fix. The decision to get one as soon as humanly possible (whilst realising the Japanese language is not our strong point and therefore not wise to import) has already been made. This leaves the choices about what exactly to get on launch day. Games, memory cards and the like are all important but WiFi Vs. WiFi & 3G is an interesting one.
How much freedom do people want to use the Vita to its fullest when out and about? Will you be tweeting on it? Can you not cope without some lunchtime run and gun with Nathan Drake against real people?
If you want that extra mobile network freedom you’ll need to pay the extra on the hardware - £229.99 compared with £279.99 and then find some sim card deals.
AT&T in the US has just announced their PS Vita 3G packages:
AT&T plans to offer two data plans, a $14.99 plan featuring 250MB and a $25 plan with 2GB. Both plans will be month-to-month and will not require a long-term contract.
If the usual 1:1 exchange rate (taking into account VAT and stuff) takes effect could we expect one of the big networks in the UK to come out and offer similar packages? Hopefully whatever is happening we’ll find out well before we have to make a choice on which unit to buy…personally the WiFi one will do me just fine.
