Vodafone Australia Reveals Vita Plans

News PS Vita Sony

Vodafone Australia have revealed their plans for the Wi-Fi/3G Playstation Vita. Potential customers can grab a monthly data plan with no upfront cost for the Vita or you grab it pre-paid for $419, which is roughly the price elsewhere. For those who do buy it outside of Vodafone, a Vodafone Sim will be included in the box on launch day.

Postpaid plans will start at $55 per month on a 12 month contract. With the basic plan, owners will get the Playstation Vita and 1.5GB of data per month over 12 months (minimal cost is $660). If that is too small, there will be other data plans available, up to 18GB for $95 per month (minimal cost is $1,140). For those who just want to pay it all on launch day, the $419 prepaid pack includes 200MB of data on a 30-day expiry.

As a special offer, if you pre-order the Playstation Vita through Vodafone’s online store by March 31st (which you can do right now), then customers will be given a necessary gift: a 4GB Memory Stick. The Memory Stick is essential for the Playstation Vita due to a lack of internal memory for save data. This does apply to both postpaid and prepaid deals. This is in addition to a free digital copy of WipEout 2048 when you activate your Vodafone sim, which you can now play since you will have the Memory Stick.

Ross Parker, General Manager of Devices at Vodafone had this to say on the Vodafone partnership with SCE Australia:

“Our partnership with Sony Computer Entertainment Australia presents us with a unique opportunity to make the move into the exciting world of mobile gaming. Our new network is built for smart devices like PlayStation Vita. Our customers have told us they can’t wait to get their hands on this device, and we echo their enthusiasm and look forward to the arrival of PlayStation Vita in Australia later this month.”

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
