PS Vita 2000 feature

Sony have just announced an updated PS Vita model bringing batter battery life inside a lighter and thinner housing. The new PS Vita with mode number PCH-2000 comes in at 20-percent thinner and 15-percent lighter compared to the original PS Vita. The upgrade also includes a new line of colours from pink, lime green/white, brownish-yellow(khaki0)/black, light-blue/white, white, and black.

Other hardware changes include 1GB of on board internal memory as well as MicroUSB now being the connection for charging and data replacing Sony’s Proprietary connection. Another odd change is the shift from OLED to LCD  for the display, this may be somewhat of a negative consider the obvious quality that OLED offers and the original PS Vita had a fantastic display. The battery life has also been bumped with an additional hour available. Sony are also offering a new 64GB memory card which again has no release other than japan. Release is set currently for October 10th in Japan only with no word on availability for the US or Europe.
