Model is 20% thinner and 15% lighter than previous design.
Sony has revealed a new PlayStation Vita model during its annual Tokyo Game Show keynote.
The revised hardware dubbed the PS Vita 2000, isn’t too different from the existing Vita design, but there are a few major differences. For instance the 2000 model features an LCD display, in comparison to the original model’s OLED screen, and boasts 1GB worth of internal memory. According to Sony the 2000 model is also 20% thinner and 15% lighter than the PS Vita’s original design, but for the moment the new model hasn’t been confirmed for a Western release.
The full spec sheet can be seen below:
Last month Sony slashed the price of the PlayStation Vita from $249.99 to $199.99 to tempt players into parting with their cash even further and we suspect this hardware revision is part of more cost saving measures from the Japanese console manufacturer.
