Will AT&T Offer Unlimited Data Plan for PlayStation Vita?

When Sony unveiled their exclusive partnership with AT&T towards putting 3G on the PlayStation Vita last week during Sony’s Press Conference at E3, a lot were dismayed. Why? It’s because the provider doesn’t offer an unlimited data plan. (E3, PS Vita, PS3)

My sprint HTC EVO has unlimited data and it can share it with other devices like the PSvita. AT&T can suck it

I had AT&T with my iPhone 3G and the data was unlimited for $30. Is AT&T really going to stiff gamers?

thats the way to go cos AT&T lol yea right

Will it really even need it? You wont game over the 3G and the stuff that is on 24/7 isnt data intensive. Most people will get games off wifi as its easier and faster as well.

They better!

They won't. This is AT&T. You don't have to sign a contract for an iPad but there is a limit for any of the iPad plans they have and there is no unlimited option. I'm sure PSV will be the same way.

Well as long as it is somewhat affordable and no contract I am in. If not, it's wifi all the way.

If they do, expect to pay upwards of $80/month. Otherwise, they will never go back to anything like the $30/month unlimited plan. They got rid of that quickly once the data usage on iPhones and similar smart phones got way more active than they ever thought it would.

Luckily, some of us are still on said plans due to being legacy customers. But, I can only transfer that to a new phone and not a new "device."

Really, 3g, not 4g by the time it releases. My goodness flash sucks on 3g. Anyway it was a bad move partnering w AT&T. It will eventually have to migrate like apple did, if they want a broader base. And AT&T couldn't handle the data traffic from apple. This makes no zense

if you have an unlimited data plan on a jailbroken iphone, u can always tether the Vita's wifi to the iphone for free :)

It just means that AT&T offered them the best deal to promote and sell their product. Really has nothing to do with who is the best. The alternative might have been to go with Verizon or similar, but at a price point that is $50 more than they wanted.

just a fyi they said at e3 there going to announce more carriers also xperia play had only 1 carrier but after it came out lots more carried it rogers in canada is a huge sony carrier. get 2 xperia plays at rogers and get a free ps3

Yeah, I think AT&T is NA only. Definitely varies from region to region.

They'll need too, 2GB would be about the size of most games........... so if you can download them, 1 game a month!
Dark_king  +   1628d ago
2-15 gigs actually.
jaymart  +   1628d ago
I already have a iPhone with Unlimited Data. PSVita 3G model is not that useful for a person like me.

Iphone isn't a gaming portable device..... its a phone ... PS Vita is a dedicated gaming handheld -_-....

........How i hate you..
AdmiralSnake  +   1628d ago
Probably not.... AT&T is a rippoff.... and the only reason why they've gotten away with this is because of the iphone. Sadly once the iphone is gone lets see how far they get away with this crap.

I switched to AT&T for the IPhone about 15 months ago and I'm not planning on getting the 3G version since their 3G is pretty awful. Then again I don't see too many chances that I would use 3G compared to wifi and 3G would drain the battery pretty quickly.
