Hell yeah! 64GB memory card too!

Hatsune-Miku1748d ago (Edited 1748d ago )

buying the new vita day one in blue and a 64gb card. i wish it had a 6inch screen but hopefully next year.

Kingthrash3601747d ago

same here! sony on a roll....they showing terrania rght now....i wonder whats in store for ps4

Vitalogy1747d ago

The 64Gb got me hooked up I just hope they don't screw the price :s

ZodTheRipper1747d ago

Now a PS4 / Vita bundle might actually happen :D

sincitysir11747d ago

100 bucks for.the 64 if u convert it from yen! Sony on a roll! The.colors are nicethough!

EeJLP-1747d ago

These changes are mostly negligible. A couple ounces lighter? A couple millimeters thinner? A whopping 1GB internal storage?

They needed to add physical L2, R2, L3, and R3 for better remote play with PS4.

HammadTheBeast1747d ago


It's OK, PSV is almost always one spot above Wii U on the charts, meanwhile PS3 is almost always beside the 3DS.

miyamoto1747d ago (Edited 1747d ago )

could be priced at $150 here in America


LED LCD has some advantages over OLED though:
LCD has proper RGB color profiles
LCD screens are more brighter indoors and outdoors under direct sunlight
LCD screens lasts longer lifespan
LCD now has good viewing angles, and deep blacks

I have a Galaxy S3 and new Nexus 7 so I know

GraveLord1747d ago

Improvements in specs will only happen once the Vita is selling well. The switch the the cheaper LCD technology and smaller form factor most likely makes it feel cheap.(Same thing happened with the PSP)

I suggest those interested in the Vita to buy the original as the with each redesign the handheld will only become cheaper and cheaper.

ohiostatesman1747d ago

Pachter said multiple colors won't save the Vita. I have to agree with him. Vita needs better games and a more substantial price drop.

no more OLED though. And that was like the best part of the Vita! ;_______;

GUYwhoPLAYSvideoGAME1748d ago (Edited 1747d ago )

ooooooh...that suuucks, i was all excited, oh well, can still buy the old ones

Thisisjuju1747d ago

I wonder if this is how they increased the battery life? I like this new Vita a lot but not sure if I want to "upgrade" and lose the OLED though.

Soldierone1747d ago

Oh wow, I was jealous till I read that. Keeping mine for sure haha

Thirty3Three1747d ago

to one guy, The current wifi model is being discontinued

to the other dude, it increased one hour, roughly

PrimeGrime1747d ago (Edited 1747d ago )

Calm down everyone. They said it was new LCD tech. Meaning that is very likely to be a super LCD which is almost identical to super amoled plus screens other than the darkness of black.

They aren't using some ancient LCD tech I can promise you that. If so then it would be much cheaper.

It isn't any cheaper really. So its easy to assume its some type of super LCD tech, you could also see the screen well, it was pretty detailed on the conference even from a distance. Which if they were old LCD's they would have looked terrible on video. I can't say which though but S-LCD 3 just came out a couple months ago, would say its good timing and probably ended up in these new Vita's.

To validate my point further the PSP used old LCD's. Do you really think Sony would go back to that exact LCD? Of course not, that is why they talked about the advancements of LCD technology when they spoke about it on the new remodel.

Gonna have to wait for official spec sheet to see exactly what type of new LCD they are using.

miyamoto1747d ago

not really its the new HD LCD we are talking about here

So this is the news we've all been waiting for eh?


did i say something wrong? Smh you all really need to grow up.

Cupid_Viper_31748d ago

Very, very, very dumb of you I must say.

Majin-vegeta1748d ago

*Facepalm*the conference just startes.Refrain from posting dumb comments -_-…

KwietStorm1747d ago

I'm gonna assume you were being facetious.

sincitysir11747d ago

People probably took your eh wrong. Like meh vs.aye.

ProA0071747d ago

Seeing as the conference is now over...I'm with Blaze on this one, this was the news we all been waiting for? smh

Etseix1747d ago

ummm i don't see any news that ( at least me ) was expecting, i mean, i have a ps vita, so, its cool abotu vita, ps3 games, okay, ps4 games, deep down was not necessarily the ultimate thing that i was waiting for ( but looks sick <3 )
but still... i thought they where going to show the last guardian on ps4, <- this, only this <- remark that, it was the only thing i stood awake 2 hours in the morning to see . oh dear, i felt dissapointed when it ended

Vitalogy1748d ago

If I heard correctly it has 1Gb of built in memory and it will cost 19,929 JPY (€151,75). But this lower price must be due to the LCD screen which leaves me thinking, not sure of the quality in comparison with the OLED.

Knushwood Butt1747d ago

Yeah, 1GB built in.

Micro USB type 2 (?) is now the connection interface.

dredgewalker1747d ago

I'll still be sticking with my old Vita. The oled is just too good to give up. Though 64gig i truly dig. I'm curious how much will the new Vita cost, probably a less than the original since the revisions made are to lower costs.

Otoshigamisama1747d ago (Edited 1747d ago )

I believe they said its roughly 190 bucks
considering the price,a Ps4 bundle is possible in the near future maybe at TGS?

dredgewalker1747d ago

Let's hope they can bundle the new vita and the ps4 for $550, that would be sweet deal $500 is a steal if Sony can pull it off.

Otoshigamisama1747d ago

We can only guess at the moment but it is a possibility, Just like you I'm sticking with my OLED screen Luna :)

3-4-51747d ago

Glad I waited. That is a lot of color options.

Upgraded Vita for the same price $200 = awesome.


Upgraded? I don't think so... Or at least I'm not personally interested in switching from OLED screen to LCD, even if it get 1 extra hour from battery.

OverdosedWitDopeness1747d ago

whats weird is the OLED is more energy efficient, probably not near as cost efficient as the LCD though. But hopefully we'll see its comeback in a 3rd gen vita.

miyamoto1747d ago

could be $150 here in NA

TomShoe1747d ago

Sony, I would kiss you if you weren't a multinational corporation.

TBONEJF1747d ago

That does it I'm moving to Japan.

Impossible! All the disagrees I got for saying this would happen LMAO. So many people are eating crow right now!

Just cancelled my Walking Dead bundle from Amazon. Glad I didn't jump the gun right after Gamescom like so many others!

EDIT: For all those concerned, Amazon just cancelled my order. It only took em a couple minutes. THANK GAWD FOR USTREAM!

Vitalogy1747d ago

Why would we be concerned with your preorder and/or cancelations!?

LOGICWINS1747d ago

Obvs you're concerned. Why take the time to comment about something your not concerned about?

Vitalogy1747d ago (Edited 1747d ago )

I just commentd that nobody cares about what you do, I don't see there a concern about your choices. Oh well...

CaptainPunch1747d ago (Edited 1747d ago )

Because he's allowed to express his opinions & thoughts...why do you leave comments here?

Congrats man, you get kudos for calling it.

PrimeGrime1747d ago (Edited 1747d ago )

Doesn't matter because many still prefer the OLED. Although I am sure they are using new super LCD's so it won't be a noticeable difference anyway but some are making it out to be one.

Tons of people have called this, revisions of sony's portable have always happened within a two year span and seeing the Vita is almost two years old now. Is it that surprising?

Months ago I would have disagreed also because months ago people kept saying at every conference or event there would be a remodel but I knew it would be a little longer.

Looks like that time has come. I predicted it would be around this time, it probably won't release in the U.S. till 2014 or very late in 2013 anyway which is a good two years.

Hopefully its earlier than that, still deciding if I want to switch mine out. I do like the design a lot better now, the 1GB memory and the longer batter life is kind hard to pass up.. Just for truer blacks on an OLED because if I am right in that they are using new super LCD's that is the only difference you will see, is black may not be as black as it is on super AMOLED plus screens.

I also am wondering because new super LCD's usually have higher pixel density (ppi) than OLED's. It may actually be sharper than the super AMOLED.

ErcsYou1748d ago

Hope it releases in the US this October, i NEED one.

friedricr1748d ago

anyone know if these are coming stateside!?

LOGICWINS1748d ago

Of course it is, Sony I'd be crazy not to now that everyone around the globe will be holding out for the revision.

Vitalogy1747d ago

What makes you so certain, did the other ps vita colors (besides white) came to EU or US? No, they didn't.

LOGICWINS1747d ago

The revision will come stateside for sure! Neutral colors like white, gray, and black are a shoe in as well. Thats all I care about.

Obvs colors like pink and yellow won't make it since there isn't enough appeal for them in the U.S.

M-M1748d ago (Edited 1747d ago )

Can't wait to get a Vita, but if isn't an OLED screen then I'll pass and get the original.
