Similar to other mobile devices, Sony will be placing size limits on PlayStation Vita downloads through a 3G connection(damn, can’t download so many stuff anymore!). In an interview at ASCII, a Sony Computer Entertainment representative said that the 3G downloads will be limited to 20 megabyte file sizes initially. The representative also added that the limited 20 megabyte may be changed in the future(I guess wanting it to go higher means we’ll need more luck!).
The ASCII interview also covered a few number of other topics related to the PlayStation Vita’s wireless support.
The Sony representative assured that download size limits aside, both Wi-Fi and 3G users will be able to access the PlayStation Store(my, how convenient..) to make purchases.
In response to a question about 3G’s 128Kpbs download and 64Kbps upload speeds possibly being too slow for some games, such as fighting games. The rep said that Sony will be providing software makers with support to ensure titles that don’t give the feeling of technical limitations are developed.
In Japan, Sony has partnered with NTT DoCoMo for the 3G service. DoCoMo will sell prepaid cards costing 980 yen for 20 hours and 4980 yen for 100 hours of 128/64Kbps transfer. For the 100 hour card, it will include a bonus three hours of high speed 14 Mbps download and 5.7 Mbps upload.
