Earlier this week Sony announced the launch of a new Sony PS Vita 2000 handheld games console which is a new version of the original PS Vita but is now fitted with a LCD screen rather than the original OLED screen.
The PS Vita LCD 2000 comes with 1GB memory built-in together with an extend battery that provides and extra hour of gameplay, even thought the console is lighter and thinner than its predecessor.
Sony says the reason they used a LCD screen rather than OLED is due to the “LCD panel can now realize an image as high quality as that of the OLED panel”. However a different story unfolds when you compare the two screens side by side. I think price has played more of a roll in the change than Sony are will to let on.
The Sony PS Vita LCD 2000 will be launching on October 10th 2013 for 18,980 yen or $190.33 in Japan and will be available in a range of colours including yellow, blue, pink and grey.
