PS-Vita-PCH-2000-White

The lighter and slimmer PlayStation Vita was released in Japan at the end of last year, and a few days ago it was also launched in the UK, now Sony have confirmed that the new hardware will be heading to the US as part of a $200 combo that will include the Vita version of Borderlands 2 or God of War 1 and 2.

The Wi-Fi-only version of the PS Vita Slim features a quad-core ARM Cortex A9 Core processor, SGX543MP4+ GPU, 512MB of RAM, 128MB of VRAM, and a resolution of 960 x 540. It measures 183.6 x 85.1 x 15mm and weighs 219g, 5 per cent lighter and 20 per cent slimmer than the original Vita.

One of the biggest changes in the Vita slim is that Sony have dropped the expensive OLED display in favour of LCD, this goes a long way to improving battery life on the hand held, something that will prove useful on those long journeys when you’re away from a plug socket.
