On the fence about the PlayStation Vita? The 3G version's $300 sticker tag does seem rather steep. However, Sony's making it a bit more enticing by offering a "launch day bundle" for early adopters. Included for free with the 3G system is a bonus "worth $55": an 8GB Vita memory card (a $30 value), one month of 3G access (a $15 value), and a free PlayStation Network game.

"This SKU is part of a promotional offer and will sell out immediately so we strongly recommend that you purchase your PS Vita early to make sure you get the extra value," Sony's John Koller wrote on the PlayStation.Blog.

The bonus only applies to the vanilla 3G system. The wi-fi only system and the "First Edition" bundle are not eligible for the offer. The PlayStation Vita will be available on February 22nd.

      And suddenly Sony releases that the Vita doesn't have the same promise that they had given it at E3 last year...

      If you look at gamestop's listing for this it says that the free month of data comes with the first edition as well and the free psn game is with the activation of the 3G

      I'm not against spending a little extra to get the 3G version, but what advantage does it give? If I can't play online or can't download games what's the point.. I don't care about leaderboards or near (which can be used when connecting to wifi access points without 3G) so give me some reason why 3G is a cool feature I need. Otherwise I'm not going to bother.

        There isn't besides saving $50 on getting that memory card and a PSN game. 3G is going to be phased out within the console's lifecycle so buying the 3G model is a waste.

          3G access will always be around (at least for another decade or so). There are too many devices that rely on it.

      Is an 8 GB card even worth getting?

      Is it possible to cancel the subscription on the 3G models?

        or use the same data plan if I already have one?
