    I just think the pricing for Vita is over priced and wonder how long it will be and how much Sony will have to loose again before they wake up and see the light and drop the price, seriously, wake up Sony!

    I figured it wouldn't be timed data like Japan because phone and internet providers are all greedy.

    2 GB lol

    There are quite a few 2.5+ GB Vita games on the PSN, Uncharted, Blazeblue, and Dream Club Zero

    Then there is the limit of 20 mb for downloads Sony put on the Vita.

    AT&T messed up badly.

    3G purchasers also get a free Vita game to download off the PSN Store, regardless of if you pay for a contract or not. So you can basically get the 3G Vita and a copy of Uncharted (provided you buy a memory card) off the store for the same price as a WiFi Vita + Uncharted + memory card. Unfortunately most of the Vita games I'm eying are like $40 or $30, Uncharted isn't interesting me as much.

    You're not going to be downloading full games over 3G, I can guarantee that.

    Confirmation please? IGN's saying the opposite on two points. Where did you read that you'll be able to
    1) - Be able to download the free game on a 3G Vita regardless if you subscribe to a data plan?
    2) - Pick from any game on PSN?

    IGN says that you MUST buy one data plan before you can get a free game and that the list of free games is not known yet.
    Unless you have a very reliable source, I think you're entirely wrong.

    $25 for me is kinda okay. I mean you'll pay MUCH more without a data plan.

    Off topic: Singapore announced their official Vita price. It's S$399 for the WiFi only version. I thought Singapore should be cheaper than HK/Taiwan?

    Singapore usually has higher prices when converting to USD. Kind of like Yen ==> USD
