Here are the first official HQ shots of the new Vita in 6 different colours.
huh wait theres no red one? i guess i have to wait even longer again
Could always get this. http://media.officialplayst...
I love upgrades and redesigns this redesign reminds me of this PSOne http://www.ladydragon.com/p...
Sony is really taking the bull by the horns. The remote play feature of the Vita and the release of Killzone Mercernary will sell more units. I may even pick one up too, for the remote PS4 play feature.
I like the pink/black one.
Just sold my Vita and my 360 to pay off a PS4 with an extra controller and Killzone. Looks like I made the right decision, because I'll definitely pick up a Vita again when PSO2 comes out.
felt the same way, was looking foward to seeing a red , but this is japans conference,maybe us one will have different colors.
It will launch in Japan on October 10th. It is not clear if it will release anywhere else at this stage. Ca Mon you can't do this what about the Rest of the world.
Theres red,pink and yellow and grey.Red was not shown in the pics but at the conference there was a red one.
That Grey/Bronze/tan one looks really nice.
I'm a bit disappointed that it will be a step down from the standard vita. Wish it wasn't an LCD instead of OLED. I wouldn't mind replacing the one i've got for something lighter/better battery. Guess i'll just hold onto the one i've got. Someone needs to do a comparison video on youtube asap.
me want the HOT YELLOW PSVITA glad i waited for this to come out very hot
no joke, the white one reminds me soooooo much of a WiiU controller!!!
It's pink :(
What if I told you there are ladies who play video games.
What if i told you not all girls prefer the color pink.
↑↑↑ Mind blown !!
I want one. I want one now.
Meh. I'll wait till they give it the Xperia treatment. I want a waterproof Vita (Play Everywhere, much?) with an HD, HDR shooter and battery stamina that's slightly better than a horny Mayfly.
OMG, Sony just announced the Playstation Vita TV!
Already have a vita but was thinking of picking up the new one....that is untill ps vita tv showed up!
So does the old ps vita have a better screen? Since its OLED instead of LCD
I think OLED is the better screen but lcd is cheaper. Another price drop maybe? I got lots of questions but its a special Day for Japan and im sure we will get answers sooner or later. Japan is going to have a awesome PS4 launch in Feb.
Have to wait till we see a comparison but it is very likely the older PS Vita model has the better screen.
Thanks, I figured it was something like this but still and am looking forward for the psvita tv :-)
They should improve brightness in light conditions because on my Vita it's awful in the sun :( Especially with Dark backgrounds. The Lumia 925 I have is a killer in the sun, and in Malta it tends to be sunny all year round.
OLED is much better than LCD. It's also much newer. Seems like they went back to using old LCD technology which costs a lot less.
It isn't that much better than newer super LCD screens used these days. So it may not be that big of a deal. Of course there will still be differences but with new LCD screens, say LCD 3, there is little to no differences at all other than the darkness of blacks. You can find any tests out there and they will all tell you the same. There isn't that much of a difference anymore. Sure a huge difference to old LCD's but the chances are very unlikely that Sony picked old plain LCD's. If they were willing to put a SAMOLED+ in the Vita, I think they are going to put super LCD's in the remodel. Like I said below when they talk about the LCD they made a point to talk about the advancements, so I think the chances are more likely its these new super LCD's they are using in the Vita now.
Fair enough. Still a downgrade though, but maybe not a big one. I'm just wishing for OLED in the Oculus Rift. Maybe one day...
They said this was new LCD technology, as they talked about the advancements and why they switched. Those were their direct words, if that is true then there won't be a huge difference that some are making it out to be. If you seriously think they would use an old arse basic LCD screen in the Vita that is just even crazier to think seeing as practically there are very few devices now that use LCD that old anymore besides really really cheap electronics. No one knows what the actual LCD specifications are. It could be the new super LCD's which I am assuming it is, since Sony pointed out the LCD advancements. Nothing they said, pointed out that it would be old tech. This is being used in newer phones which are almost identical to SAMOLED screens or even TFT. There is not a big difference in some instances it can be better. Only slight difference would be noticed for AMOLED, most people can't tell the differences and are forced to choose because the screens are all so similar now. Regardless it will look good either way I can assure you that, the only difference you might find noticeable is nothing can get black, as black as AMOLED does other than that though you won't notice much.
Old Vita does not use OLED. It uses AMOLED. OLED=Sony AMOLED=Samsung. Anyway, LCD is probably the better choice imo. I did prefer AMOLED at first but after a while you just get sick and tired of its over saturated colour. Wish it had something closed to true colour. Anyways, a good comparison between these screens would probably be HTCone vs Samsung G4.
Over-saturation is something you can fix on the software side of things. You could never "fix" the blackness of LCD screens, which is why - disregarding price - OLED will always be better than LCD. And it's not like there's only one level of OLED either. As with LCD, it comes in different levels of quality/advancements, and has not yet had as many years of tweaking and development as LCD. It's still a *lot* pricier though.
@korix.. just saying vita does not use OLED... it uses AMOLED. Just saying its different
Oh, right. Didn't mean to correct you, even though I admit it seems that way :/ You are right.
so what the hell was the whole point of a redesign vita if sony also had the psvitatv in the works?
To go outside with this one. The Vita TV is for your home.
THIS! this is something that a lot of people don't understand yet.
Exactly. And the VitaTV doubles as a PS4 extender in your home, allowing you to play your PS4 on another TV, while allowing you to also play Vita games, stream media, etc. Without a doubt we'll start seeing PS4/PSVitaTV bundles coming.
redesign the vita to make it even prettier and more desirable, while providing the one missing feature simultaneously, which is tv connectivity. sounds awesome to me.
Hold it!!! More to come On TGS baby! hoping for Persona 5 announcement :)
Another good day for the Playstation Nation
Is it just me or does it look taller? (top bezel)
Am I imagining this or does it have two Back cameras?
That, my friend, is a screw.
3rd picture from the top? really... looks like a camera to me. lol EDIT: yeah, it is a screw. lol
is it cheaper?
Looks very nice should be interesting to see if it helps pickup sales.
I love the new Start / Select Buttons! :3
Looks very nice. Why is there no red? =/
They took OLED away... wow that was big thing to do. I think OLED is really beautiful in Vita and was one reason why I bought it. I wonder if they going eventually replace this with the older version?
No Oled no sale, sorry. That is like taking 3D away from 3DS...oops! PS Vita TV could have been avoided if they placed a mini HDMI on the vita or a usb attachment.
Im sticking with classic vita. The new one looks nice but not as great as the first one. The VitaTV thing though is cheap and I will buy it for my Asian account :)
I am a Vita owner. Sony, thank you for fucking original vita owners....Seriously I wake up and this. WTF ? Does it have performance upgrades ?
No, it's just the Vita Slim. Calm yourself. How could Vita owners be screwed? It's not like they released this a few months into Vita's lifespan with a price drop.
I am a Vita owner too but I don't feel screwed with this. The only performance upgrade was an additional hour on battery life. Most of the changes were for cost cutting purposes and the addtional internal 1gig memory.
That battery life is probably at the expense of substituting the OLED with the LCD screen. So, it's a trade off really. Plus, as HICKEN said, it's not like it came 3 months after the original's release.
Yea seriously, I don't get how he feels screwed. I've only owned my Vita a little over a week and I actually feel quite satisfied in my purchase knowing that this new "slim" model won't have a OLED display.
Why do u feel screwed, because the new vita weighs 2oz less, woop ti doo, grow some muscles, first off you'd be losing that beautiful oled screen, battery life 1 hour more, well let me tell you that I bought nyko grips for mine, which makes it even heavier by the way, but more comfortable when playing for a long time, but the nyo grips have a built in battery thatgives you an extra 5 hours, yes thats right, 10 hours in total. But I guess this is useless info because your complaining that you can't handle 9.8 oz 3g model or even worse 9.2 oz wifi model vs the new model that weighs around 7.34 oz
I really like that Grey one, but I think I'll personally stick to getting the original Vita
Was gonna get one to couple with my PS4 redesign looks cool, better battery life even cooler.
So the new Vita is continuing in Sony's tradition to remove features in newer hardware? OLED> LCD
lol Deja Vu People complain about price, but then when Sony does something to lower the cost people complain about them removing features... If you care about the OLED screen so much then buy the current version while it's still available. If you don't want to shell out the money to buy it then I guess you don't really care about the OLED screen that much to begin with. The new version is thinner, supports micro usb for charging and has 1 gb of storage off the bat... so things have improved.
He's just a troll, anyway.
Is this new Vita cheaper than the already cheaper current Vita? If so then okay, otherwise you are paying the same for less.
And the 1gb internal memory? They could've put more than that
"So the new Vita is continuing in Sony's tradition to remove features in newer hardware..." by making it more consumer friendly for the mass market! FIXED! Sony has always provided the top end first. Those that are in the core market go out and get it. Those that wait are usually waiting because of PRICE. So, they trim the costs and release a revised version of their product to the mass market. There is still the option to get the prior version...it's out there. But, if you want to save some cash and still get essentially the same experience for less...there's a new option.
But this isn't cheaper than the current vita though.
@ Bundi This is the first re-design. It is cheaper for Sony to make, thus actually might get some revenue and will eventually go down in price. It would have been cheaper than the original had they not did a price break a couple of months ago. Either way, this is just step one.
Even if it isn't cheaper, you still have the option to buy the current one, no? So there really is no need to complain. If you don't like this new design you can still get the old. It's in your hands. Besides Sony just cut the price of the of current Vita only a couple of weeks ago. So this new version, if it is the same price, would have been cheaper than the old one prior to August which makes it cheaper technically anyway.
