AT&T is discontinuing U-verse, its streaming TV service, on Xbox 360 starting December 31, the company announced. AT&T will issue a $ 99 credit to Xbox 360 U-verse customers to cover the cost of a year’s Xbox Live Gold, which was required for the service, and then some. The refund should show up within two billing cycles, AT&T said.
Activating a 3G-enabled PlayStation Vita under a new DataConnect plan with AT&T will get you two free games and three months of PlayStation Plus membership.
The promotion is similar to one Sony ran in February 2012, especially because one of the games in question is the same: Super Stardust Delta. The other freebie in the deal is Smart As, a brain-training game developed by XDEV.
The Vita received a permanent price drop to $ 199 last week, alongside cost reductions for the system’s tiny but pricey memory cards.
It seems that GameStop plans on offering AT&T data plans for mobile devices under a service called GameStop Mobile, according to information posted on their website. The information has since been pulled, but not before our friends at Engadget reported on it.
So, as long as GameStop Mobile continues to not be a reality, we will continue reporting the information we’ve yet to learn about the service. Hypothetically-speaking, GameStop Mobile would require AT&T-compatible or unlocked devices. The service would probably include pay-as-you-go five dollar plans and $ 55 monthly plans, which would include unlimited voice and text and 500MB of data, or 1GB of data for data-only device users.
The someday-news of GameStop Mobile would make more sense out of the company’s recent addition of Android devices to their trade-in lists.
