Sony has announced the PlayStation Vita Slim for the UK following the model's release in Japan last year. This thinner, lighter system will be available in black on February 7 for £180, which is a higher price than some of us were anticipating considering the move away from the original PS Vita's OLED screen to a less-desirable LCD display. And no extra colors? Darn.
There's still no specifics on a launch in the US, but if the pricing is consistent with what's been announced here, I'm not interested. I figured it would be on par with the current line, not more expensive. If anything, this puts pressure on me to get the non-Slim model before those go away.
