[QUOTE="Ryunosuke, post: 5594066]Not everyone will have that experience, especially not if millions of consumers start to use it for games like that. Another problem is with the carrier(both Verizon and AT&T), they don't seem to want the service to be used for this type of stuff(heavy gaming, large downloads, etc.).
That's assuming the majority of sales are made up of online sales. A great deal of them are purchased/preordered in person at a local store.[/QUOTE]
true, i know amazon isn't the end all but normally if a game or system is in amazons top 100, top 10 it reflects on the gaming market. this has been consistent this era, such examples including mortal kombat, la noire, and more..
i say it has more to due with price than it does 3g being a gimmick but once the price dips down, 3g will be phased out or a newer sku that includes both will be out. The phone market controls the gaming market in terms of connectivity and mobile internet. in a year or two, there will be phones that are much more powerful than the vita and more phones capable of running 4g, some at reasonable prices. With newer tech, the able to tether, and the thought of another monthly mobile charge is detrimental to the 3g model.
