Vita's 3G Data Cap - Your Mileage May Vary

According to a story doing the rounds, Sony is basically saying that its down to your mobile provider what your cap will be on 3G downloads for PS Vita gaming. So, in Japan the 20Mb limit might be a local limit and western telcos may well offer more, or have a variety of caps depending on how much you want to pay.

It does make sense to limit 3G data downloads with so much WiFi about, and the risk of users getting expensive bills for pulling down masses of data. I'm not in the least bit worried personally and think the stink about the Japanese cap is a kneejerk reaction from tech savvy folk used to big data limits. Non-technical types picking up a Vita will probably be glad they can't run up big bills.
