It's not like it really matters - you're not tied to AT&T in any way, the Vita comes Sim Unlocked, you can jam in just about any card from any provider. I'm not entirely sure why people put so much focus on AT&T - fair play they are official partners, but there are alternatives.
Sweet, too bad 3g wont be compatible with my country though.
From $25 for 2GB to $30 for 3GB? That's an improvement no matter how you look at it.
Anyways this isn't only for the Vita, its for any ATT smartphone too.
But it's also a trap set by AT&T because for $15 you only get 250MB.
people are going to buy the 3g version? lol
seriosously, why would you pay 50$ more for the system + a monthly fee for not only old 3g tech, but download caps that make it so you cant even download full games on the go?
So I can update my trophies on the go like a fucking boss.
It's like the difference between a heart attack and a stroke.
I mean $360/ year for internet access outside my home (and a token free download)? You could buy a new Vita every year plus a game for that money.
And don't get me started on the 250MB plan, $180/ year to basically check email. Even light surfing would be almost impossible with that data limit. Lol.
Didn't say they couldn't do better, because they obviously could.
To surf the interwebz. And update the mybooks and facespaces and tweetums and whatnot.
and everyone can already do all of that from their phone...so....
I actually ate one of those today, damn it was delicious.
But I don't see the 3G as entirely useful on the Vita. If they advertised "online gaming anywhere" with like 4G or something then I'd be impressed. But the 3G is rather limited to basically just browsing the web (slowly), small downloads, and basic functions of the PSN (messaging, updating trophies, etc).
IMHO, those are all things that would be better done on a smartphone. Of course, that is an extra expense, but you could probably get a $30 a month contract with a free phone (I don't live in the US, so I don't know how much contracts and such are, but someone mentioned these data plans apply to phones too - I guess by the time you factor in calls and texts if you need both, or one or the other, you could probably get a plan with a bit less data for the same sort of price), making it no more than going for the 3G Vita. Plus if you get a decent phone, you could tether a WiFi Vita to it anyway.
It doesnt require a contract, so does that mean you can pay for it through PSN? That'd be the only way i'd consider buying it at all (Seeing as i always end up with abundance in PSN credit)
Are you certain about that? I thought otherwise, and I know for a fact it's locked in Japan to w/e carrier they're using over there.
Unless on average you would use between 160MB-2GB of data. Obviously the lower plan won't cover your general usage and the 3gb one is overkill and costs $5 more - $60 a year per person who falls under this category goes to filthy rich greedy people.
And yet people still buy 3G tablets. So.
There are no 4G networks yet.
I beg to differ, 4G is available where I live from numerous providers already (Well, LTE is. The "definite" 4G standard isn't set yet).
Oh yeah, you seem to be right. I was thinking about European Vita's.
I assume that a Sim Unlock will be available sooner or later, in fact, I've read that Sony may be preparing one via a system update come the end of the contracts.
