According to reports online, it looks like Sony will be placing limits on the size of files that can be downloaded with the PlayStation Vita over 3G: a 20MB limit. This means that users won’t be able to download games from the PlayStation store when they’re not connected to WiFi (well, triple A titles at least – I’m sure none of them will be that small). Downloads over 3G will probably be restricted to downloading Minis, system updates and probably the occasional casual game.
Well for those of you with unlimited 3G data plans and crying foul over the cap – this limit could be increased or removed in the future, but know that the 20MB limit will be in place during the Vita’s launch. Seeing how expensive most data plans are in the States, I doubt people will be using their 3G connection to download games anyway. What do you think of the cap for downloading files over 3G, does it bother you? Or were you planning on getting the WiFi-only Vita in the first place?
