The day many fans that where expecting the latest Sony portable consoles arrived today, Feb. 22, with the launch of PlayStation Vita, the latest from Sony to play wherever we want. The console came out last December in Japan and now the portable gaming debice is launched to the rest of the world. Sony has celebrated it in style. The official store of the company in Nippon, which began selling the console two hours before the date was announced by the company.
Today began officially the launch, but in the last two days some stores have begun to announce to those who had reserved units of both the 3G + WiFi model or the WiFi only model,Â the most sought after. The price of both models is about $300 dollars and $250 dollars respectively, but we can find them in many stores with different types of offers with a price reduction on the console or with the addition of games that have accompanied the PS Vita at launch.
Many consoles are released with a limited catalog of games, but not with the PS Vita, with up to 20 different games from their first day in stores. Ubisoft meanwhile has included titles such as Rayman Origins or Lumines, Koch Media has brought the latest in the Marvel vs. Capcom series and Electronic Arts its flagship football game: FIFA Football. Without doubt the most games to be contributed to a console launch by Sony, with titles like WipEout 2048, ModNation Racers Roadtrip or Uncharted: Golden Abyss
In addition players will not have to go find the games or rely on cartridges to play them as they will have the option to download them via the PlayStation online store, from which one can buy many of the games for the PS Vita at a slight price reduction. Besides the games already have a number of totally free playable demos, such as FIFA Football or Dynasty Warriors Next, among many others.
To access this content and to manage your saved games, you have to save them on a memory card, with capacities ranging between 4 to 16 GB, priced between 20 and 50 dollars, respectively. The price of the games have a similar range as well as one can find games to suit all budgets, starting with downloadable games like MotorStorm RC or Escape Plan by more than ten euros or traditional games, with prices between 30 and 50 dollars.
As for the two models, the main difference is connectivity, since the 3G + WiFi uses SIM cards from phone companies with a data plan so you can connect wherever you want, without having to rely on WiFi wireless connections. The companies that been in charge of welcoming the PS Vita is Vodafone and AT&T, but we can choose any company or data plan available in your country to surf through the portable device without any limitation or difference.
PS Vita Pricing Model Details:
The hardware pricing ($250 for Wi-Fi and $300 for AT&T 3G/Wi-Fi) is steep for the mainstream audience, as is the software (which ranges from $30 for games like ModNation Racers: Road Trip to $50 for games like Uncharted: Golden Abyss). Sonyâ€™s decision to proprietary Vita Cards (the PSPâ€™s UMD is officially dead) adds another $20 (for 4GB) to $100 (for 32GB) to the cost. And those who go the 3G route will end up paying even more ($15 for a 250MB data plan, $30 for a 3GB plan and $50 for a 5GB plan).
