Pre-ordered the wifi version from Amazon. Can't wait for this BEAST.

But was it a showstopper?

Simple Answer...

captain-obvious2692d ago (Edited 2692d ago )

compared to the infamous 599$
that price tag(299-250) is a blissing to ppl that want this thing

darthv722692d ago

When it was announced that ATT would be the carrier you could hear crickets....then the boo's.

So yeah, it was a show stopper. LOL

showtimefolks2692d ago

and many in the crowd were booing.

but when kaz said 249 the whole crowd roared and clapped together to whee kaz himself started clapping and kind of giving himself the yeh i did good

it was show stopper because everyone in the media was so set on 349 for basic model and 400 for 3g

now its gonna be great competition with psp2 and 3ds same price ho ever has the better software will get the better sales simple as that

I was going to get the wifi (expecting a much steeper price point). But at 299.99US ...I'm now considering the 3g option.. O_o ........(must stop unnecessary upgrade.... must be strong!)

darthv722692d ago

you can buy it without having to sign up for service at the same time. I tried doing that with the iphone and att said i had to buy the data plan at the same time. boooo

The unit has wifi and att has plenty of wifi hot spots around. I would like the option to use 3g when i feel good and ready but alas....this is att we are dealing with now.

I preordered mine to right away Wi-Fi model just tether off of my smart phone don`t need another bill.

About who owned E3 i have mixed feelings tho Sony and Nintendo did very well both of them to me like a tie.

Microsoft i think was way to into kinect some of the stuff like Ghost Recon was really cool. But the show really bored me personally.


Think about it man its $300 but how much is that bill gonna cost u a month? Do you really need to be connected 24/7?

In the end the money stacks up...

dc12692d ago

Thank you killer_pwned89! +Bub to you!

I have a Droid X .. there has to be a for me to tether it..create a hot spot. (Google is my friend).

Again, thanks for pulling me out!

a_bro2692d ago

KillerPwned2692d ago

@DC1 again lol

I to have a droid X i will PM you on how to tether i have it set up on my phone.

metsgaming2692d ago (Edited 2692d ago )

the media in the crowd was expecting the worst, they were ready to hear like $350 and laugh but then it was $250 and they were suprised.

FragGen2692d ago

Preordered 3G+WiFi @ $299 it was a no brainer. I had set aside $350 last year when I heard all the PSP2 rumors, so IMHO, this thing is priced to SELL.

True hardcore gaming on the go? I'm STOKED.

I would get 3G if it wasnt tied to AT&T. What a shame.

clearelite2692d ago (Edited 2692d ago )

Same here, but maybe their exclusivity deal will run out. Also, expect people to look into "unlocking" them as well.

As of right now, I'm probably going to the WiFi version. There is WiFi everywhere now anyway.

MGRogue20172692d ago (Edited 2692d ago )

yeah, it's best to pre-order it from them 'cause you'll most likely receive it a day early before it's UK release date.. well, that's what has happened with almost every game I pre-ordered from 'em.. and they are selling it at the cheapest so far. :)


On topic: I can't wait to get my hands on it. :P

XxZxX2692d ago

why? I rather get a wifi and tether it with LTE. 3G is so last gen man.

MGRogue20172692d ago


The 3G model has both WiFi & 3G.. not just one.

XxZxX2692d ago (Edited 2692d ago )

I know it has both.. of course it has both..
I rather just save the money and tether with LTE instead.

Stick with one data plan, save you lots of money

L6RD7BLU32692d ago

It was nice but RULE, naw.

spektical2692d ago

no i dont think it was a heartstopper. But it was a great demo showing.

Hopefully I can convince myself to buy one.. I havent owned a Portable gaming device since DS (original)

Pixel_Enemy2692d ago

I am sold completely. That is a great price too along with the first party support!

sikbeta2692d ago (Edited 2692d ago )

I'm totally sold, the price was just settled it for me... Day Freaking ONE! :D

silvacrest2692d ago

personally i think vita and its price point have been the saving grace of this years E3 SO FAR (its not over yet)
