You basically get the 3G version for only $20 more than the wifi after you sell the card. and then you get a free PSN game and 250mb free on top of that.
correct but if you looked at the target sale I posted the wifi only is the one that comes with the 20 dollar gift card which is then going to be used to take 20 bucks off of a memory card and 8 GB may in fact be enough memory so in total I'd only end up paying $260 (minus 5% + tax) for an 8GB card and wifi only vita. Sure I'm missing out on the free game and "250 MB" of data and the 3G capability but in all honest that isn't worth the extra 40 dollars, especially since my budget is pretty tight right now!
Memory was an issue for me with the original psp. The 32mb that came with it wasn't very much so I eventually bought a 1gb card down the road which was still pretty pricey but plenty of space at the time, however after 1 data install from the new dissidia (or monster hunter i forgot) but it was full so I had to go out yet again and buy a 4gb stick! I I think I'm just gonna buy a 16 GB now and see if that will last the life of the system because I foresee more required data installs!
