It seems Sony will be launching a new Vita model before TGS and it is set to feature significant improvements, according to a rumour by Tokyo Kezai, a Japanese newspaper.

The model will be launched before the Tokyo Game Show and they have not mentioned anything about any price drop. They do however mention that the RAM will be increased to 1GB from the current 512MB, but games won’t be allocated more RAM to ensure compatibility between the old and new models.

The screen size will also be increased to 6.3 inches from the current 5 inches, but the resolution is set to be same. The outer design is also said to be a bit different and more like the PS4 design.

Take this as a rumour at the point but Japanese newspapers have usually leaked Sony stuff accurately before a major trade event.


That 1 GB RAM is probably going to be used for the system to help it load things quicker, but the 512 GB RAM will probably be used for games.

1.3 in bigger screen.. NICE!

Good thing I've held off on the Vita. Hopefully this is coming with a drop on the price as well as maybe updated (i.e. faster) memory cards with also a price cut?

My guess is $250 for the base model, $350 for the enhanced model.

This may tie In to that Bioshock Inifinite discussion from yesterday. Maybe the new model can crank out big, open environments.

Hopefully this version comes equipped with a bottle opener. I'm going to need to drink heavily for the next few years.

That would be the biggest "**** you", Sony would pull off to screw early adopters.

I don't see it happening.

Why would they increase it to 1 GB RAM if it's not going to have any significant impact on games? Something about this smells a tad fishy to me.
If you believe that indie games aren't glorified flash games, please refrain from responding to my posts. One AAA game is better than a thousand indie dregs.

I'll take it with a grain of salt. Sounds great to me, but not enough to replace my Vita. I personally think a new Vita should be released and pushed as a PS4 companion system featuring R2/L2 and R3/L3. The larger screen and more RAM would certainly help, too.
Everyone on GameFAQ's should be nice to one another.
