While we know that Sony will be launching the PlayStation 4 later this year, it seems that Sony might have plans to introduce a new PS Vita as well. According to The Magic Box, they have reported that based on an article in a Japanese newspaper, apparently Sony will be introducing a PS Vita handheld console in September, possibly during the Tokyo Games Show. The new PS Vita is expected to sport a new design with a larger display that will bump it up to 6.3”, although its resolution will remain at 960×554, so technically its pixel density will be reduced, although how noticeable this is remains to be seen.
The report has also indicated that the RAM in the new PS Vita will also be getting a bump up from 512MB to 1GB and the overall PS Vita design is said to be more in line with the design of the PS4, although we can’t really imagine it at the moment. In any case take it with a grain of salt for now, but what do you guys think? Would you like a slightly larger PS Vita with more RAM and a redesign? Or would you have preferred a more revamped version of the PS Vita? If anything recent reports of a possible PS Vita price cut would certainly suggest that a new model could be introduced, but we guess we’ll just have to wait and find out.
