Rogers to cash in on 3G PS Vita owners, all three of them
In fit of denial or tenacity, Sony is pushing ahead with its 3G PS Vita, which comes to Canada this fall for more money plus one of two data plans.

In Canada, Sony and Rogers just announced a partnership whereby the wireless carrier gets to sell data packages to the new iteration of the under-performing PS Vita handheld game system exclusively.

Of the three or so people that care, those that might actually buy a 3G PlayStation Vita in Canada this fall will be able to access turn-based, asynchronous multiplayer gameplay, instantly updated rankings and leaderboards, immediate access to the latest downloadable add-on content, and real-time community news. In other words, do stuff on the PS Vita they can already to for free with built-in Wi-Fi, but now in spots where Wi-Fi isn't available, like Nahanni National Park.

For this added feature, Canadian consumers can spend $300 on a 3G version of the PS Vita - about $50 more than the current Wi-Fi PS Vita that nobody is buying - plus another $15 - $35 per month for a dataplan with Rogers.
