As you may have read already the PlayStation Vita has been priced (and reasonably priced at that) and that there will be two models available, the Wi-Fi version and the 3G version (available on the AT&T network). So what will Sony and AT&T be bringing to the table with this exclusive deal? Take a look below for some features heading our way.
The PlayStation Vita system offers a revolutionary combination of rich gaming capabilities and social connectivity that will bring users closer to each other and closer to their gaming experiences wherever they are. Blurring the lines between interactive entertainment and reality, the PlayStation Vita system provides unparalleled portable gaming experiences with dual analog sticks, front and rear cameras, front multi-touch display, multi-touch rear pad, GPS, six-axis motion sensors, and three-axis electronic compass. The speed and coverage of AT&T’s mobile broadband network will ensure that PlayStation Vita users will remain connected to content and each other on the go. PlayStation Vita customers with an AT&T service plan will also have free access at more than 24,000 AT&T Wi-Fi hotspots nationwide.
Here is what Jack Trenton President and CEO of SCEA had to say,
“AT&T’s mobile broadband network excels at delivering data with high speeds nationwide, which is what we need for powering the social and connectivity features built into the PlayStation Vita entertainment system,” said Jack Tretton, president and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment America. “PlayStation Vita will give users the opportunity to engage and connect with one another while delivering the kind of rich and immersive gaming experiences unimaginable on any other portable device on the market today.”
I for one wish it wasn’t exclusive to AT&T, but the Wi-Fi version will do me just fine.
