Rogers Communications and Sony Computer Entertainment Canada announced today that Rogers will provide exclusive wireless connectivity for the 3G-enabled PlayStation Vita, launching in Canada this fall.
"PlayStation Vita with a 3G connection will completely transform the way Canadian gamers play on the go, offering new ways to play games and interact with entertainment," said Stephen Turvey, Vice President and General Manager, SCEC. "With access to the Rogers 3G wireless network, PlayStation Vita owners will be able to stay connected with their friends and experience PS Vita's rich social gaming features virtually wherever they are."
Wireless enablement and a seamless payment interface will be built into the PS Vita system through a specialized SIM card powered by the Rogers Control Centre.
Rogers will offer two data packages on a month-to-month basis with no long term contract. Two plans will be available at launch including a 250 MB for $15.00, 30-day data package and 5 GB for $35, 30-day data package. Users can activate a data package directly from their PS Vita system.
The PlayStation Vita 3G/Wi-Fi Launch Bundle will include a download voucher for exclusive PS Vita games Gravity Rush and Unit 13, and will be available at major electronics retailers in Canada on October 2 for $299.99.
