PlayStation Vita will be irresistible to many customers, even at $249.99. Of course, that’s the Wi-Fi only system. If players want 3G, they’ll need to shell out $299.99 for the handheld, plus a monthly subscription fee to AT&T. Factor in memory cards and the undisclosed cost of games, and we have to wonder if the 3G Vita will be worth the cash.
Let’s face it, you don’t have to look far to locate a Wi-Fi connection. What’s more, it remains to be seen whether Vita’s 3G features will be worthwhile long term.
