Sony Releasing New PlayStation Vita Model In Japan Next Month
Expect a bigger memory card as well.
Sony didn't feel like waiting until next week for the Tokyo Game Show, as it held an online press conference last night in Japan to reveal its latest announcements. Fans of the PlayStation Vita may want to listen up.
The company announced the PS Vita 2000, a newer model of the system that is 20 percent thinner and 15 percent lighter than the current unit. It utilizes a five-inch LCD display and comes with a 1 GB memory card, and will be available in six different colors, ranging from white to yellow to pink. The system will release on October 10th in Japan for 18.980 yen, but there is no word when or if the system will arrive in the U.S. or European markets.
In addition, the company announced its biggest PS Vita memory card to date, clocking in at 64GB - double the size of the current 32GB standard. It's slated to release at a "later date," and hasn't been given a price point.
