Sony announced today that the slim PS Vita will arrive in the UK on February 7th for £180. This is what you can expect from the new slim model
Rounded shape to fit comfortably into hands
The new PS Vita system features an enhanced, rounded shape. Coupled with the trimmed down body, users will be able to enjoy game play more comfortably. In addition, the PS button / START button / SELECT button have been modified to a round and convex shape, allowing users to push more easily.
Incorporating a 1GB internal memory card, PS Vita enables users to enjoy games without purchasing a separate PS Vita memory card. Additionally, the new PS Vita system features a power indicator and notification indicator at the top of the system which will provide users with various information, such as power status or incoming messages. Furthermore, the new PS Vita system incorporates a micro USB port enabling users to utilize their own USB cable, such as those used for smartphones, for charging or backing up data.
Longer battery life
The redesigned internal architecture of the new PS Vita system also contributed to stronger battery duration, enabling it to achieve approximately 4 to 6 hours of game play (current model is approximately 3 to 5 hours) and approximately 7 hours of video play (current model is approximately 5 hours).
