January 9, 2012Written by Nick Michetti

Update: IGN reports that not only will 3G Vita owners be able to activate their data plans from their Vitas, but that with activation of a plan, users will “be eligible to a select a free download from a list of select games available on the PlayStation Store.” No further details were available.

Original Story: At E3 2011, Sony announced that AT&T would be the exclusive 3G provider for the PlayStation Vita. Since that announcement, gamers interested in Vita have wondered exactly how much data plans would cost for Sony’s next generation handheld. Today, at CES, the details have finally been revealed.

Kotaku reports that AT&T representatives said at CES during a presentation that there will be two PlayStation Vita 3G data plans: $15 for 250MB or $25 for 2GB. The report says there are no contracts for the 3G Vita data plans, reinforced by an image at the top of the article — appearing to be from press or publicity materials of some kind — which reads “No Term Contracts.”

AT&T’s announcement confirms an earlier alleged report about their 3G data plans for Sony’s handheld.

The Wi-Fi + 3G Vita will retail for $299.99 on February 22nd. However, the First Edition bundle — which releases a week earlier — will retail for $349.99 and includes a Wi-Fi + 3G Vita, a 4GB Memory Card, a case, and a copy of Little Deviants.
