Recently, ASCII magazine spoke to an annoymous Sony representative about a couple concerns that potential consumers had with the Playstation Vita. One of the big concerns that they had was over the downloading via Vita’s optional 3G connection, there good news and some bad news with this unfortunately. The good being that a 3G version of the Vita is still set to release with the other versions.
Now for the bad news, 3G file downloading will be limited to 20MB or under which is similar to most mobile devices. I guess so you don’t get a surprise bill at the end of the month when you have eaten up all your data cap and then some. So, you will only be able to download system updates and maybe a couple trailers or small demos just not full retail games unfortunately unless your close to an open wi-fi network on your travels. The representative is hopeful that this will change in the future but there are no immediate plans.
The rep also addressed the odd proprietary memory card. As of now, there are currently no plans to use the format in any other devices. It sounds like Sony’s not trying to push a new media format like it did the Blu-Ray — this is really about making you buy one more memory card.
