What's the best version of the PS Vita?

9 replies 1080 views Edited Dec 7, 2012

Is it the Assassin's Creed 3: Liberation white bundle, the COD Black Ops bundle, or the recently released PS Plus Unit 13 bundle.

 

I think they're all great but I choose the Unit 13 one because it has 3G, PS Plus and a memory card for $299.

 

What are your thoughts?

The 3G/PS+ bundle is a good buy, if you are looking to get the 3G version anyway. Otherwise you are still paying the same amount of money for the AC3 & CoD bundles, after adding a year of PS+ separately...

I have a 3g version. Short of having gps in it, I've not found much use. 3g is ATT only, which has extremely poor service in this area, and the data plans are more expensive than the data plans on a mobile hotspot from verizon.

Aside from that, it depends on whether you want AC3, CoD, or Unit 13/ps+. Some people won't use ps+, some people don't like shooters. I got the lego batman bundles for 199. I like the white vita though. It's pretty.

PS3 20gb with 120gb hd *** PS3 40gb *** PS3 80gb *** Ps Vita 3g *** 2x Ps Vita wifi *** 2x White PSP-Go

3G has limitations. if you are fine with paying the monthly fee and knowing you cannot download games on the go, only update near, twitter, facebook, friends chat, basically... basic things + gps and turn-based multiplayer games go for the 3G model. so you cannot say...play a full on mmo on 3G (PSO2 when its out *wink*)

 

If you know you wont be using 3G like that then you can make the choice pretty simple, do you prefer black or white? Also do you prefer a matte backing versus a smoother backside?, as the white model has a smoother back body.

You guys all have good points, and what i'm hearing and seeing on the PS Blogs is that 3G is terrible from At&t. I thought about trading my white Vita for an upscaled white/crystal one with all the hookups, but until one comes I think i'll stick with my white one

If your going to want 3G, your going to wanna buy the Hong Kong model... which isnt bundled, but is completely unlocked. Thats the ups and downs.

 

White vita forever!

 You are only paying for the a premium for the 3G/Wifi vs. Wifi difference at 249 vs. 299. BOPS and AC3 are new, while U13 is...pretty lame-o so the PSN+ for 1 year is a bonus in that bundle.
