It’s no mystery that the latest handheld console produced by Sony, the PsVita, has been struggling all over the world due to very low sales. It’s indeed a shame since there are a few interesting games on the console like Soul Sacrifice and others. Releasing a new PsVita model may boost sales all over the world and get even more developers to create exclusive game for the handheld console.
According to a Japanese newspaper that ‘s what Sony is going to do in the near future. The Japanese company will be revealing a new PsVita model next month, right before the Tokyo Game Show. The Magic Box has translated the news for all non-Japanese speakers, as reported on a NeoGaf forums thread:
Japanese newspaper Tokyo Keizai reported a rumor that Sony is set to reveal a new PS Vita model in September before the Tokyo Game Show. The new model PCH-2000 will have a 6.3″ display manufactured by Samsung (screen size of the current model is 5″), and the resolution will remain at 960 x 554 pixels. The amount of RAM will increase from 512MB to 1GB, to allow more programs to run in the background, the amount of RAM used by games will be unchanged (meaning games are still compatible between old and new models). In addition, the design of the new model will be more in-line with the PS4 design; and the system will launch with new game titles.
It’s not the first time we hear rumors about a new PsVita mode and this doesn’t really look too much different from the previous ones. However it could make sense for Sony to release a new PsVita model together with the upcoming next-generation Playstation 4 since the handheld console will be used for some of the new console’s features like Off-Tv Play and more.
We’ll let you know more once something new comes in on the matter so stay tuned for updates.
