Sony has announced a new design for the PS Vita that is 15% lighter and 20% thinner than the existing model. It will come with 1GB of built-in memory and carry an extra hour of battery life.
The trade off here is that the screen will be a 5 inch LCD instead of the beautiful OLED screen that Vita owners have enjoyed since last year. For my money I would just buy the model with the OLED screen because of how crisp and clear everything looks.
The new Vita will also come in different colors including white, black, light blue, brown, pink and yellow. It will release in Japan on October 10th. No date was given for release in the west.
