Slim PS Vita to replace existing model, transition to take "days to weeks"

The slim PlayStation Vita will replace the current model, it has been confirmed.

Sony's UK managing director Fergal Gera said low stock of the existing launch model means it will be phased out in "days to weeks", depending on the retailer.

"[The slim Vita will] dovetail in behind very quickly, because there's very little stock of the Vita out there," he told Digital Spy.

"It's not like they're going to co-exist in any meaningful way for any period of time. There is no stock at all."

By being more expensive on it's own compared to the original with a memory card and games included and the lack of an OLED screen I'd say it was an out take.

People, now is the time to buy the original Vita.

Oh god... I just hope I can still get them to replace my OLED screen if anything happens to my original one.

My Vita is OLED and my TV and monitor are IPS/PLS (all three are similar technology). If I have to game on a LCD Vita it might be the end of Vita for me personally.

It's one of the only good news from the vita having such lukewarm sales ... at least there is a sizeable stock of Oled vitas in plenty store for the foreseable future

So their big solution is to sell a cheaper make at an even more expensive price?

That is the Suggested Retail Price. Don't compare it to store prices.

Stores typically sell at MSRP, hence why it is the suggested price.
