Sony unveil new PS Vita

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.
