AT&T to offer two tiers of monthly service

CES 2012: PlayStation Vita 3G Pricing Announced
 
 

AT&T has just revealed how much it will cost to access data service on your PlayStation Vita.

For $15, users will have access to 250 MB of data per month, while $25 will net them a 2 GB monthly allowance. The latter should be more than enough to cover the pint-sized downloadable games and non-data-intensive online multiplayer features.

AT&T was announced as the exclusive mobile data provider for the 3G version of the Vita last year during the annual E3 trade show.

When Sony spokesman Kaz Hirai revealed that 3G service on the PS Vita would only be available through AT&T, there was a remarkable negative reaction of groans and boos from the audience. Even Mr. Hirai seemed to acknowledge the universal hatred toward AT&T, but had to remain faithful to the company.

No doubt AT&T provided Sony with some sort of financial incentive to be the exclusive 3G service provider.

For those who would prefer to use Wi-Fi only, there will also be cheaper versions of the PS Vita that have no 3G radios. The handheld, which goes on sale on February 22, ranges in price from $250 to $300 depending on the model.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
