Vodafone Australia will be the preferred provider of 3G connectivity for PlayStation Vita (PS Vita) in Australia, Sony Computer Entertainment Australia announced today.
"With social gaming and connectivity at the heart of PlayStation Vita it is important that we partner with a market leading network provider, to ensure users have a high quality 3G experience.” said Jim Ryan, President & CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe. “Partnering with Vodafone will enable PS Vita users in the selected countries to always be connected with their PlayStation life, friends and games, wherever they are.”
The PS Vita 3G/Wi-Fi model, both now available for pre-order, will come with a Vodafone SIM card and can be bought from Vodafone channels, both online and in store.
Purchasing a Vodafone-connected 3G Vita will also score you a PlayStationNetwork voucher for WipEout 2048, which will be available to download from PlayStationStore.
