It looks like Vita 3000 got trademarked in japan.
Is that an HDMI port?
I'd happily buy a new model but I would really want it to have L2 & R2 buttons. PS4 remote works great on a technical level but where I stumble is having to learn new button layouts for games that use all the controls. So Assassin's Creed IV L2 & R2 on PS4 become L & R on Vita. And L1 & R1 become (if I remember correctly) the touchpad. Very confusing. So it would be so sweet to go from PS4 to Vita and everything is the same.
Charging port on the top of my vita looks like that and is in the same location.
PS Vita Clamshell please to cure our stiff necks!
Sorry mates. That's just a trademark of the basic design of the PS Vita 2000. It's not a new PS Vita. At the same time they trademarked the basic DualShock 3 design. https://twitter.com/tradema... Here's the PS Vita 2000. Identical. http://livedoor.blogimg.jp/...
This is just a big fuss over nothing. It clearly says "position trademark" for the button layout. Maybe hard to understand due to google translate and lack of gaming journalism research as usual, but nevertheless. Just a trademark for button layout and nothing more. Here's another for the PS3 controller. https://twitter.com/tradema...
"filing date: April 1st 2015"
Almost like that's the start of the Japanese fiscal year or something ...
Guys... the trademark is about button placement and only about button placement. The description says it all "携帯用液晶画面ゲーム機用のコントローラー " コントローラー means controller So no, Vita 3k is not in production. please notice how buttons are marked... This is from a reply to the article from another site. http://thevitalounge.net/20... First comment of the article.
Just dont make exclusives for Vita 3000 like the crap Nintendo do with the new 3ds
Why they did that was beyond me. Even sloppier than the handling of the Wiimote and that Motion Plus accessory. I guess it wouldn't be the first time though. The N64 expansion slot for example and the tiny Gamecube memory cards (Animal Crossing ate a whole card). All these things trying to prevent me from gaming.
People would feel forced to buy another handheld. More money in their pocket.
Nintendo do? Xenoblade Chronicles is the only game ever created and confirmed for it. Uninformed much.
MegaRay said to not make exclusives like Nintendo is doing. You named one game that is an exclusive and reports are that this won't be the last one (the percentage of the games is yet to be know though). I see nothing wrong with what he said.
blaming Nintendo for games being exclusive to n3ds isnt wise. When it give devs the ability to use more power, better engines and bigger games. Whether or they use it is up to them Nintendo didn't confirm that games will be made exclusively for it. They said if devs chose to utilize it then it will be exclusive.
Even worse to me is the exclusion of a charger with the 3DS XL. For those that are trading their old 3DS towards the new one they have to trade in the charger as well, and then buy a new charger separately.
I KNEW IT! Everyone told me it won't happen but the Vita is coming back! New model, here we come!
Now this strengthens my opinion that Vita 2 will come.
I hope so
Lol read the article filling date is "1 APRIL" Ring any bells ? There is no new one coming as of now
still no L2 or R2, c'mon sony get with the program.
I'm still trying to wrap my mind around how the form factor would handle said shoulder buttons. Maybe if they could flip in and out that would be nice.
Nintendo already figured it out. http://www.3dstination.com/... Or Sony can make an add-on. http://i.imgur.com/oa6Da.jp...
maybe they can make a deal with the ppl making the Deca-Vita
The only thing that could make me want to upgrade.
Can we please get some AAAs for the vita please!!!! Maybe a god of war New jrpgs something anything pleas!!!!
Yes! AAA batteries would be so helpful!
I would like to start with importing some of the games Japan has first. I wish I knew Japanese, but sadly it's not an easy language to learn quickly.
Good I guess haven't heard much Vita news recently.
Needs better WiFi connection than the vita mk1 for better ps4 connection.
This isn't a surprise, PSP had a 3000 model and for us not to get one. Well Vita would have to be doing really bad (PSP Go bad). I hope we get the new OLED screen, because I pass on getting the LCD one because the picture looked faded compared to the 1000 model. Plus speakers moved, my fingers cover them.
L2 and R2 please....
1.OLED Screen 2.HDMI Port 3.L2 R2 4.Micro SD Card slot Make those things happen and I'd pay 150 - 200 to have one.
it's amazing, this handheld is officially Dreamcast 2 superb hardware for it's time and yet it sells very poorly which is a shame... seriously, if it would sell better we'd have more Uncharted Golden Abyss quality handheld games coming out on the system. or MGS Peace Walker 2 type of sequels or FF: Dissidia 3 or Shin Megami Tensei games ported or just about any good games from PSP having a potential sequel on the Vita. PSP had the similar problems when it began but it proceeded to actually get damn good games along the way
Yeah...if you do the research the PSP had far more success than the Vita for primarily two reasons: GTA and Monster Hunter. There were other factors like GoW and Square games and whatnot but those two franchises were the top sellers and really put the system on the map. Of course Nintendo swooped up MH with its Wii cash flow and Rockstar mysteriously vanished from the mobile scene. It's really a shame because the Vita is the best handheld gaming system we've seen. Although PSP had the vastly superior OS for sure.
Your not factoring that it was the first PS portable, that at the time, many people got it just as a media device and many, many other reasons. GTA didn't just do HUGE numbers on PSP.... PS Vita may not be selling well JUST like the Wii U may not be selling well, those days are over and the folks that got a PSP may not even be gaming any longer. Just like the folks that got the Wii. Rockstar didn't make PSP just sell 80 million units...I'm sorry but what GTA game on PSP even did half of that? Vita is a great handheld and has lots of great games for it, just a list of RPGs always getting announced for it, it will do fine. Maybe not PSP numbers, but it will be alright.
Top 4 selling psp games: 2 monster hunters and 2 grand theft autos. Combined those 4 games pushed over 18 million units.
This an improved vita, or a whole new next gen hand held?
An improved Vita although confusion is justified since it's the 3000 and PSP 3 would be the next system. I'm wondering if this will be a Japan exclusive model or if it will be a megaton at E3 and Sony will actually try to resurrect the system avec Gravity Rush 2 and other games.
its what they did for PSP, started out regular, went to 2000, then finished it with 3000 which was console quality for its time. It literally was as powerful as the PS2
The R2/L2 triggers could fold in flush with the back of the handheld, and have a lock switch so they stay in place when not being played.
I'd rather get more buttons than oled....the oled killed the battery. It was definitely beautiful but having both a slim and fat Vita i'd take the extra battery life a in some cases less saturated colors over the oled....although persona 4 looks much more interesting on Oled Edit: remove or make back touch smaller and make the analogs better quality..they arent as accurate as ps3 analogs
And they will never be as accurate as ps3 analogs
id happily buy a model but man this system needs more support to attract more people into its userbase. Just jrpgs and indies wont cut it because It only caters to a certain market. Unfortunately I just sold mine
If they put a micro sd card in it i'd be happy to trade in my oled vita just to get rid of those vita memory cards
Sony needs to add R2 and L2 buttons. I don't understand what they are thinking. Add those and make the screen a bit bigger. It is essential for remote play and PS Now streaming.
Also does Japan "celebrate" April Fools? Saw the April 1 date and it made me wonder. I'll admit I don't know much about Japan, so that is why I ask
The new dust catcher?
It NEEDS L2 R2 buttons! Man i hope theyre hidden in these blue prints if true
Please tell me they put the L2 R2 buttons in. All I ever wanted was a DualShock with a screen.

I don't see a future in Vitas. I think the future for handhelds is obviously devices that run full Windows and (Universal) Windows Apps; however, that NVIDIA is currently focusing X1 for use with a daemonic OS is going to sLOW that progress DOWN=4OWN some as it segments the market with daemonic OS and app devilopment... the same is true about Vita devilopment though, in that case, the segmentation (that's bad for consumers) is even more obvious IF future Vitas only run Sony platform specific software. The future should NOT be about having to buy multiple devices to run the licensed software of each software provider (as caused by agendas such as Sony's, such as forcing other devices if you want a music service other than Spotify, etc.)... that's BACKWARDS of the direction Microsoft has been working towards for years with their "One" vision. BACKWARDS is bad, such as CONSTANTLY spinning the BACKWARDS idea that AA batteries are "stone age" (as I've been told) rather than explaining to everyone that "we should obsolete having low life" integrated\NON-UPGRADEABLE batteries that force constant daily ugly Medusa wiring of dongles on faceplates. I think most everyone will prefer handhelds with Intel processing plus NVIDIA GPUs running Windows until later when AMD catches up with "mobile envelops" that overcome their "sLOW POSTage"... fLAMER heat production means an increasing number of "turn offs", such as from a lack of "backUP power". Cool is all about reducing the "dies" that is helped excellently with increased LOGIC FANS, especially when more speed for problem solving is preferred. I love that "Intel" and "AMD=AM4" improves; however, that NVIDIA wants to focus on daemonic OS support troubles me, and I similarly don't like ARM processors (that NVIDIA is mating with and that are used in Vitas) because they're mainly used for daemonic OSes. fLAMER ARMS, such as the Vita uses, are bad similar to FireARMS... see how it fits that Fire\fLAMER ARMS are for daemonic agendas? On "a side" note, even though ARMnARM with "Ms" is now more likely with (Universal) Windows Apps marrying between architectures, I may prefer Microsoft not make any more devices that run on ARM, unless ARMs that aren't fLAMER are released... not sure if X1 qualifies due to daemonic OS as standard and no word yet (?) on "WINdoze" support (most people misinterpret "WINdoze", and those that do probably try staying ignor(e)ant of the facts that daemonic OSes are generally all now performing slower, have less functionality, worse support, and with more "insecurity issues" than "Ms" and "WINdoze"). The WINdoze idea is how I expect that Microsoft (eventually) WINs against devices such as Android, iOS, OS X, PS4, and Vita, etc. It is a shame that people "oppose" how much better the vision of "Ms" is, that's especially true as "Ms" crosses the Threshold (the codename for Windows 10) that puts all the non-profit making significant other guys out with their "ill legitimate" children that want to stick with the dad who likes the wrong kind of sWORDS (multiple puns... there is an ideogram pun also). I think Sony should get out of the handheld market and focus on making their games as (Universal) Windows Apps. Maybe Sony should make the best next-gen "handheld with Ms" for Windows 10... SONy and Ms can make an excellent COMBINATION though lousy opposition, since "Ms" is obviously going to spank SONy "at the end". Sony should not try forcing their software on their own hardware (DOWN=4OWN) any more than they should try forcing their movies only on their own hardware or licensed hardware.
