Sony Announces New Smaller, Lighter PlayStation Vita

Posted on September 9, 2013 AT 03:56am

Sony has announced a smaller, lighter PlayStation Vita re-design will be released in Japan on October 10.

The new model will be 15mm deep–20 percent thinner than the existing model–and 219g in weight–making it 15 percent lighter. The re-design also includes 1 GB of onboard memory, meaning that you won’t need a memory card for game saves and small downloads.

“Thanks to the rapid progress of LCD technology in recent years, the new display provides users with the highest-level image quality, perfect for deep and immersive gaming experience that is at the core of PS Vita,” Sony said.

The platform holder is yet to announce if this new Vita will make its way to North America and Europe. You can check out the handheld’s full specs below:
