Sony have unveiled the PlayStation Vita 2000, a new SKU for the handheld, that promises to be 20% thinner and 15% lighter than the original, existing model.
The OLED screen is gone, with an LCD one in to replace it, and Sony are stating that the battery will last an extra hour too. The new odel will also come with 1GB of built-in memory for save files and will charge via a micro-USB port.
Breaking the news at TGS, Sony also reiterated that the price for memory cards will be dropping, announcing a 40% price slash on the 10th of September in Japan, which will also coincide with the release of a 64GB memory card on the same day.
The Vita 2000 has been dated for a October 10th release in Japan and will come in at 18980 yen (roughly $190). It'll also come bundled with a 90 day subscription to Playstation Plus.
