Which version of PS Vita should I get, Wifi or Wifi/3G? I heard the 3G model have more issues than Wifi, I read online, and some people say the software, hardware, and games crash more often than regular Wifi, is that true? Other than having 3G, and other apps for 3G, are there major differences between these 2 models?

I honestly don't really see a reason to go 3G....I either use it on Wifi or not at all...I vote Wifi

Just wifi version, you can live without 3g

Haven't heard of issues between the two. Probably false information.

Just get the WiFi version. You really don't need a 3G one. If it had more support I would be inclined to say otherwise, but there really isn't a reason to use the 3G yet.

Use the money you save from buying a 3G version to purchase PS+.

Just buy whichever you can find a better deal on. The 3G is pretty useless but the Vita is no worse than the Wifi only model. No reason not to get 3G if its the same price or cheaper than the Wifi model somewhere.

Can also get the upcoming walking dead bundle for $249 which is the same price as the normal wifi only one. Is the one i am going for next month http://www.gamestop.com/ps-vita/consoles/playstation-vita-wifi-3g-walking-dead-bundle/110479

Thanks a lot. If the price for both models are the same, which one should I get?

Wifi-Only. 3G can;t download files that are more than 50 MB. So I fail to see the point unless you wanna have it on all the time to use Facebook or Netflix or something.

Let me clarify some things before too much misinformation is spread.

The 3G model has everything the Wifi model has with the addition of 3G connection via AT&T and also a built in GPS. If you don't plan on using 3G then all you have to do is go to settings and uncheck the option for enable mobile network. It won't drain any more battery than the wifi model does if you do this. The GPS is useable even if you don't use the 3G. At this time the only thing that uses it that I know of is the Near app, so it's not much of an advantage at all, but who knows what the future holds. Some game in the future may use location services in a cool way and the GPS can make it more accurate than other means. Also, there are no performance issues with the Vita because its 3G or not 3G. It's all the same beside what I mentioned above.
