    The real concern for Vita....AT&T

    So I know everyone has their cheap panties in a bunch over the cost of memory cards, BUT this should be the main concern..At&T was just ranked the worst in customer satisfaction by Consumer Reports for the SECOND YEAR in a row. Now I am personally getting my Vita with 3G functionality and it really concerns me that I am going to get subpar service from AT&T....I'll be spending all this money just to have this garbage outside carrier munging up my performance.....BOOOO

    It's annual satisfaction survey time for Consumer Reports, and the magazine has a few results to share in anticipation of next month's issue. It appears that regional provider Consumer Cellular topped the charts -- the survey rated scores from 66,000 online subscribers -- though Verizon was ranked the highest out of the four major players for the second year in a row, followed closely by Sprint and T-Mobile. According to the survey, the latter company was still "significantly better" than last-place AT&T. The full results will be published in the January 2012 issue. Your own personal experience with each provider may vary depending on your locale, of course, but 66,000 people have certainly made their voice heard.

    Personally, I just want to find out how much it will cost per month for the 3G, that will be my deciding factor.

    I don't plan on even getting a Vita, but when I found out about the AT&T version I was surprised. Why in the hell would they offer just an AT&T version? There should be a universal or different versions for different carriers. I personally hate AT&T with a passion, even back when it was Cingular Wireless. If I were to buy a Vita it would be the non-3G version, in protest of AT&T.

    The question is whether they will or not.

    Well it definitely is, I know for sure because in my local mall there's a phone kiosk with AT&T available for a carrier. Also AT&T Global Services, Canada| AT&T Global Services Canada| AT&T

    Thank you Davey!

    I've been saying this since they announced that the 3G version was exclusive to AT&T. That exclusivity deal better be worth some serious bank because that deal is going to cost Sony ALOT OF CASH.

    I know that pairing is why I'm getting the Wifi and not the 3G version.

    Whats worse is, my opinion aside, Sony has been burned by this very deal before. AT&T fucked over Sony's Ericsson brand the earlier part of last decade because of that exclusivity. Sony still hasn't completely recovered from that. Why go back?
    Gauss's Piracy Uncertainty Principle: When you pirate a game, that act inherently changes the results of what is to come after your pirating. You can't make any statement with any certainty regarding what would have happened had you not pirated the game.


    Gauss's Rating Rationale:
    0-1: A game whose very existence is abhorrent to all things creative and intelligent.
    2-4: A just plain bad game.
    5-6: A game that has alot of mistakes, but is atleast playable and has some enjoyable sections. Good for a rent.
    7: An average game, should be played at some point
    8: A good game, should buy at some point
    9: A great game, day-one purchase
    10: A game that goes above and beyond the generation, its transcendent.
