Sony giving away more with 3G/WiFi pre-orders

 

Still not sure if you should get the PS Vita on launch day? Sony is hoping that they’ll be able to convince you to take the leap by giving away more goodies if you purchase the 3G/WiFi version on or before launch day. What exactly are they adding, you ask?  Sony will be also giving away a AT&T DataConnect Pass, and a PlayStation Network game. For those of you hoping to get these goodies with just the Wifi version of the PS Vita, you’re out of luck.

Both the AT&T DataConnect Pass and the PlayStation Network game will be provided to you upon 3G activation, with the AT&T DataConnect Pass being good for one free 250 MB session. For those opting not to get the PS Vita First Edition Bundle, the Launch Day bundle ($299) will include the Vita, of course, but will also include an 8 GB memory card.

To be honest, I’m not sure how those who have purchased the PS Vita First Edition Bundle are going to feel given that it only comes with a 4 GB memory card. Despite the fact that the PS Vita First Edition Bundle comes with a case and Little Deviants game, many are already expressing unhappiness around the fact that they would be paying $50 more for bundle with a smaller card.

UPDATED: It’s still unclear as to what game will be included as part of the Launch bundle.

UPDATED 2: In reading the fine print, the free 250 MB session only kicks in if you (a) activate within 90 days of issuance; and (b) purchase at least one 250 MB session first. Most people would be OK with the first requirement, but most others will not realize that you have to make the initial purchase of a 250 MB session to get a second free. Always read the fine print!

    Thanks for educating the consumer, the options can get a bit confusing when it comes to launch day purchase options for the Vita….

    That’s the risk of being an eager early adopter, but hopefully 3rd party memory cards will be available at some point in the future, since the sony ones are pricey.

    And what if i want to use a different carrier?, am i able to do so?

      Unfortunately, the PS Vita in the US is tied to AT&T. The only way you could get around this is by buying a portable wireless device, like the MiFi, from another carrier.
