The PS Vita 3G version of the new Sony console is the best you can get. If you are looking for a good deal or the best price on one then continue reading further.
The PS Vita 3G/Wi-Fi handheld console has everything you need to play online whether you are at home or on the go. The 3G model is great for continuing your online experience when there is no Wi-Fi connection available. Other than playing games you will be able to browse the internet and read your emails, see which PSN friends are online, make the use of multiplayer and voice chat facilities. You can get this 3G model with a free 8GB memory card. An 8 GB card will cost around 30 dollars to buy separately, so this can make up for some of the price difference between the Wi-Fi only model.
The successor to the Sony PSP, the Vita is very desirable and is a stunning piece of equipment. It is about a centimetre taller than the PSP and considerably lighter. It is tough and compact and looks like it is capable of taking a few knocks.
3G Data Plans
To utilise the 3G capabilities you are going to need a PS Vita 3G data plan. There is a 250MB and a 3GB plan. In North America the service will be provided by AT&T and their plans are run month to month with no long term contract. AT&T will also provide free Wi-Fi hotspot access in the USA. The price will vary depending on which one you require.
The PlayStation 3G Main Specs
The PlayStation Vita is equipped with a quad core 32-bit processor and a quad core graphics processing unit. It also comes with 512MB of RAM and 128MB of VRAM. These things make the Vita a very powerful handheld device which can do stuff very fast. It has a 5-inch OLED display with a 16:9 resolution. This is a nice multi-touch screen and while it is not true HD, on a small screen, it’s hard to notice the difference. The device comes with 2 cameras, with one situated on the back and one on the front. These cameras have a resolution of 0.3 megapixels.
PS Vita 3G Gaming
The PS Vita games are pretty amazing for a handheld console. Uncharted: Golden Abyss is a brand new adventure and probably the pick of the launch titles available. This game is close to matching the PlayStation 3 Uncharted titles and is a shining example of what the new handheld can do.
BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend may not be an obvious game choice but is one of the best fighting games available. This game has beautiful hand-drawn visuals and is as slick and brilliantly animated as the PS3 version. If you like playing a beat-‘em-up then this is definitely for you.
Wipeout 2048 is the newest instalment of the PlayStation’s long running futuristic racing combat game. This game looks great and is really fast and very playable. There are also a lot of other great games for PS Vita that are available and, to look forward to.
Vita 3G Summary
The PS Vita is a great device. It has a beautiful screen, great controls and is well built. On the downside, it is expensive even for the cheapest model, the games are highly priced and the memory cards are specific to the console. However, this is a first-class piece of hardware at a premium price. If you can afford one then I would pay the little extra and go for the PS Vita 3G version.
