"Near" is a core PlayStation Vita feature composed of location-based services, that utilize PlayStation Network. Near, developed specifically for this service and the network, will be pre-installed in the system to let users find out what their friends in the vicinity are playing now or what they were playing recently.

Every game title for PlayStation Vita will be provided with a space called "LiveArea" where users can share the fun and excitement with other players. Users will have access to the latest information of games provided from SCE and third party developers and publishers through PlayStation Network. Additionally, Vita users will be able to view "Activity Log" which is constantly updated with accomplishments from users who are playing the same game, which in turn can trigger active real-time communication among users.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great system December 16, 2013
Verified Purchase
I enjoy this system and love the upgrades over the old PSP. I'm not currently using the 3G service but I like to have this model in case I ever change my mind. But for others would be fine to save the extra money and just get the wifi only model.
