The new PS Vita, lighter, thinner and a surprising LCD screen.

The new PS Vita, lighter, thinner and a surprising LCD screen.

On Friday, Sony revealed a new PS Vita in Tokyo.  Sporting a five-inch LCD display, the new Vita is 20 percent thinner. At 219 grams, it’s also 15 percent lighter. The new PS Vita comes in six different colours and has a battery life that lasts one hour longer, comes with 1GB memory, and is only available in a WiFi model. The biggest concern among fans is without a doubt that the new PS Vita comes with a LCD screen where the previous model has a OLED screen.

Below is a few examples of  screen quality compared between the older and the new PS Vita:

In the above image  Twitter user Hiro compared the Ragnarok Odyssey title screen. The original Vita is on the top, and the new Vita is below it.

More revealing is the below video that shows us a lengthy comparison of gaming footage between the two. Take note at the 2:50 mark to get a glimpse of a side-view as opposed to a straight forward view. Pretty conclusive if you ask me. Once again the older Vita is on top, the new one below:

The new model has received lots of praise for how light it is, and how thin it is. The new PS Vita will go on sale in Japan in October for 19,929 yen ($200). There’s no word yet about an international release.
