Lighter, thinner, more colors


Announced in Japan at a Sony press conference this morning, the new PCH-2000 Vita model comes in six colors -- Black, White, Green/White, Light blue/White, Pink/Black, and Khaki/Black. The sleek new design is 20 percent thinner and 15 percent lighter. A New LCD improves on the quality they've been able to obtain with the tech prior, but it's not that sexy OLED screen from the first Vita.

A 1GB memory card is built in. Battery life has been expanded to go up to six hours of play now, and it can be charged via micro USB.  

Sony says that this new Vita was developed to be more casual and friendly than its predecessor. It has been trimmed down and rounded for ease of holding. There are new power and notification indicators, too. 

This new Vita will be priced at 18,980 yen, set to launch on October 10 in Japan. 

We'll get a better look at this model next week at Tokyo Game Show 2013.

In related news, a new Vita memory card was also announced. It's a 64GB card, and will cost about $100.
