To retail for £180 .
Sony has announced that its first refresh of the PlayStation Vita handheld, known as the Vita 2000 or Slim, will be launching in the UK on February 7th for £180 according to UK product manager Ben Law. You can preorder it from your local retailer starting today.
Releasing late last year in Japan, the PS Vita 2000 is a minor refresh of the original. It’s 20 percent thinner and 15 percent lighter and delivers stronger battery life thanks to the OLED display being replaced with an LCD display. You’ll also get 1 GB of built in memory for storage.
Sales of the Vita have been less than stellar since its launch in 2012, and it’s still constantly trumped by the 3DS and DS in hardware and software sales. Nonetheless, the platform has some great titles with Soul Sacrifice, Killzone Mercenary and Tearaway. Will you be picking up a PS Vita 2000? Let us know your thoughts about it in the comments.
