Back in September last year we heard that Sony were releasing a slimmer version of the PS Vita. Initially the PS Vita Slim was released in Japan but, the slimmer handheld console is now set to release in the UK come February 7th. While available in several colours in Japan, the UK will only have the option of the black model.

Just a few weeks ago, Sony announced a price drop for their Sony PS Vita handheld gaming system and now we know why. Today Sony have announced a new PS Vita. For the most part it’s pretty much the same as the original PS Vita but, Sony have made it thinner and lighter. The new Sony PS Vita is 20 percent thinner and 15 percent lighter than the previous model. The battery now lasts an hour longer as well. Most likely in part to the screen change. The newest PS Vita, PCH-2000 features an LCD display rather than an OLED display. Other changes include 1GB of inbuilt memory so you don’t need a PS Vita memory card straight away – although still highly recommended, especially if you’re a PS Plus subscriber. The best change they’ve made though, in my opinion is the Vita now no longer requires a propitiatory charger. Instead the latest Vita features a microUSB charging port.
Although it may not have been the most popular tablet in terms of sales after its release, the Sony P series is certainly one of the more ‘different’ varieties of tablet to be released. Despite the poor reception at its full price however, surely the latest deal from Currys in the UK will boost sales of the device further, as who can resist a deal for a 4GB tablet with 3G capability for just under £130?
Sony have revamped their Walkman range and the new models are the E470 Series. They feature a similar design to their previous Walkmans and come in a variety of colors including red, blue, green, pink and bronze. The new Walkman range however is their thinnest today measuring 7mm thick. The E470 features a 2 inch display and Karaoke mode, along with a few games, such as Sudoku and Tetrist.

Sony Pictures Entertainment have recently officially announced that the latest in the series of James Bond movies will be the first in the history of the franchise to appear in widescreen in IMAX theatres.
Entitled ‘SkyFall’, the movie will be the 23rd movie outing for James Bond and Sony believe that now is the time to take full advantage of the IMAX technology which boasts over 350 square meters of projected image for the ultimate movie going experience.
President of Worldwide Distribution for Sony Pictures Rory Bruer has announced the release of the move on IMAX as:
“Skyfall will be the cool, must-see event release of the fall, and releasing the film in IMAX only reinforces that,”
Which was echoed by fellow ‘announcee’ Greg Foster who is the Chairman and President of IMAX:
“It is an honor and a privilege to be a part of this legendary franchise, whose iconic characters and electrifying action will only be amplified in the IMAX format.”
James Bond Skyfall, is directed by Sam Mendes (who also directed American Beauty) and will star James Bond stalwart actor Daniel Craig in his third movie in the James Bond series (Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace being his first two outings as 007).
Skyfall will be premiered on the official 50th anniversary of the release of the first ever 007 Movie – Dr.No, on the 26th of October worldwide except for in the US where it will hit the movie theatres on the 9th of November.
