Before, we reported about AT&T’s incredibly stupid plan for 250MB/$14.99 and 2GB/$25. The only good thing about it was that it was monthly, no contract required. Don’t forget that the 3G model costs $299.99 with a $50 premium, the Wi-Fi-only model only at $249.99.
Now, 1up is saying that AT&T provided some insight as to the new Vita plans for the United States, as they are much different then their Japanese counterpart.
- 20 hours of monthly usage [$12.75]
- 100 hours bi-annual usage [$64.80]
- Unlimited monthly usage [$71.56]
Sadly, AT&T failed to mention overage costs or download caps, but if it’s the same as in Japan, you 20MB over 3G and anything larger must be done over Wi-Fi. Like most normal Wi-Fi compatible devices, the Vita allows access to over 29,000 hotspots across the country, hopefully keeping your 3G downloads to a minimum.
To take off how much you will be paying for this device, you’ll get a free game from the PlayStation Store, but as we all assume, it’ll be a game no one cares to ever play. Some of the games that have been confirmed to have 3G functionality are Super Stardust Delta, Wipeout 2048, LittleBigPlanet, ModNation Racers: Road Trip, and Hot Shots Golf. Pick up your Vita on February 22, and if anything happens, we’ll have it here.
