Vodafone Recommended For Vita 3G Service

News PS Vita Sony

In the United States, Sony Computer Entertainment America announced that AT&T will be the exclusive provider of 3G in the United States. In Australia, it will be a fight for your dollars, but Sony will recommend that potential buyers should choose Vodafone over the other providers, with a little incentive to persuade the consumers to follow the red brand.

However, Vodafone may not be your choice and Sony will allow you to make that choice. They did, however, add the following statement on using other services other than Vodafone:

“It is possible to use another provider as PS Vita isn’t SIM locked. As we have partnered with Vodafone, we have fully tested PS Vita’s features on their service and therefore can assure a great 3G service right from the off. We haven’t tested with other providers’ services and therefore can’t give the same quality assurances.”

So, what about that incentive? Well, stick with Vodafone and, once your Vita connects to the network, you get a free digital copy of Wipeout 2048. Pretty good incentive, I think. However, just like AT&T, Vodafone has been put under the spotlight for poor service and constant dropouts, which led to a $1 billion investment to upgrade the network.

The origianl deal was actually struck between Sony Computer Entertainment Europe and Vodafone. The following countries are under the deal: Australia, United Kingdom, Ireland, Italy, Germany, Spain, Portugal, New Zealand and The Netherlands.

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!
