Sony have announced their decision to release the new slimline edition of the PS Vita in the UK. The slimline is already available in Japan and is now making it’s way over to the West where it will replace the old model as, apparently, stock has now run dry. The PS Vita Slim is due to come to the UK on February 7th.
The new version features a new 5 inch LCD screen that replaces the old OLED screen and will apparently extend the life of the battery by an hour or so. The slimline will be 20% lighter and comes with Wi-Fi and a 1GB internal memory card.
The most important question of course, is how much will it cost? Well there is no final answer so far but is currently suggested to retail at £180. A price drop of any kind will of course help the sales of the Vita, but especially after the massive launch of the PS4 and it’s remote play feature, Sony are now keen to get players more interested in their hand-held.
