Sony shook hands with Vodafone today, naming the network its "preferred provider" of 3G for the PlayStation Vita in Europe.

PS Vita WipEout

The 3G version of PS Vita - which launches in the UK on 22 February next year - will come with a Vodafone SIM card and a PSN voucher for a free copy of WipEout 2048.

While Vodafone is yet to announce exact data plans and pricing, the 3G Vita will touch down for £279.

Sony Playstation IEM Headphones

Last week, Sony revealed a few bonuses for those who pre-order the console. These include, blue in-ear headphones, discount on games and various PSN avatar goodies. For more information on Vita pre-order bonuses, visit the official PlayStation blog.
