Pretty expensive and requires a contract though.

But then again, this is Japan. So who knows what we get?

U.S. probably isn't getting an unlimited data plan. I just don't see most people exceeding 1GB to 2GB in cellular data usage in a month on a regular basis. Especially not on a device like the Vita. It's not going to let you download large purchases thru the store over 3G.

You'd be surprised, I have a 2GB data plan and typically go over 1GB a month (videos, downloading apps, etc).

It probably wont' be "cards", but it's still prepaid. It'll most likely be like the iPad 3G (or any other tablet's 3G plan).

I do think it being prepaid plan is a good way to go, but if it does not roll over its not worth it.

(only roll over plans in the prepaid market i know of are Net10 and Tracphone. let me rephrase that no roll over plains that are not full of hidden fee's ,and contracts.)

No, data never rolls over. The reason Net10 and Tracfone do is because data is the same as minutes.

So yeah, data never rolls over. You either use it or you don't (and get charged extra for going over).
