Sony Explains Why They Chose LCD Over OLED For New PS Vita


A couple of days ago Sony announced a new PlayStation Vita handheld console which was a slightly upgraded version of the original PS Vita released back in 2012. One of the main changes made to the console was Sony’s shift from an OLED display to that of LCD which we’re sure some of you guys might be wondering why. Speaking in an interview with Nikkei, Sony’s Andrew House was quoted as saying, “The main reason is that the LCD panel can now realize an image as high quality as that of the OLED panel,” adding that by using LCD, it made it easier to slim the console down, which might explain why the new PS Vita is about 20% thinner and 15% lighter than its predecessor.

Some are speculating that perhaps the switch to LCD was also a cheaper option compared to that of OLED, but in any case as long as the end result looks good, does it really matter? However if you’re wondering what’s the difference, you can check out our post here where the OLED and LCD displays are compared, although at this point in time it seems that maybe the OLED display is faring better. So, which display do you prefer?
