Shuhei Yoshida, @yosp, Reveals Some Details About PS Vita 3G Usage

Since the data plans for the 3G PS Vita had been announced, i hadn't been able to find any information about how much the Vita would actually use. So, using my personal twitter account, i asked Shuhei Yoshida, aka @yosp.

"do you know how many MB's the PS Vita uses a month. is not clear if a 250MB data plan is enough, will Near use it all for example?" i Asked.

"Depends on what you do, not much by use of PS Vita features like near, Live Area, text messaging, high scores, item trade." replied Shuhei Yoshida

So it seems that if your only going to use the built in features of the Vita, you should be fine with a 250MB data plan, a month. its if your going to be doing other things like streaming video or multiplayer that you'll need a higher data plan.
