IGN is reporting that PlayStation Vita 3G models in the US are to receive text messages, something we noticed yesterday while checking out the Vodafone Vita help website.
On the official forums for Vodafone we also noticed the following message, “once you’ve topped up the Vodafone SIM card you’ll receive an SMS to your Playstation Vita containing a redeemable code.
“In the top right hand corner of the Playstation Vita itself you’ll see a small ‘bubble’ which is where you’ll find all notifications that the device has received. This is where you’ll find the SMS with the Wipeout code once it’s been sent to your device.”
This is not only very handy, but perhaps it suggests that in the future you may be able to send texts to others, something which is currently not possible.
