CES: PlayStation Vita news roundup AT&T has finally revealed the price if you want 3G data on your PlayStation Vita.
The carrier says 250MB will run you $15 per month, and $25 will get you 2GB.

This price comes on top of the extra $50 premium the 3G model demands on the base price.

Additionally, Sony later announced that the Vita would be getting Netflix access. A streaming subscription to Netflix costs $7.99 per month.

With a release date in late February for the U.S. and Europe, the Vita will run on an ARM Cortex A9 quad-core processor and be powered by a quad-core PowerVR SGX543MP4+ GPU.

Featuring a 5-inch capacitive multitouch OLED screen (with 16 million colors), the device will be 7.16 by 0.73 by 3.28 inches. Furthermore, the Vita has 512MB memory and 128MB VRAM in its graphics processor.

$25 gets you only 2GB? I guess there is no point in getting it for online play unless you have tons of cash to spend on $10 1GB chunks.

If you have an Android phone and a data plan already, just use the wifi hotspot function and problem solved.

GENERATION 98: The first time you see this, copy it into your sig on any forum and subtract 1 from the generation. Social experiment.

1) Better not use that Netflix much; 2 GB is nothing. That's what, 4-5 streamed movies, tops?
2) Online play is overrated in general.
3) Screw Sony. Never again will I intentionally buy a Sony product.
