PS VITA 2000 BlackOn October 10, Sony will release a lighter and slimmer PlayStation Vita. The PCH-2000 model is 20% slimmer and 15% lighter than the original system. The front screen has also been changed to a high-definition liquid crystal display instead of the OLED screen in the first generation Vita. Sony says the screen is capable of displaying 16 million colors, making it comparable to the OLED display.

Meanwhile Sony is also making some changes to the Vita’s storage subsystem; the Vita 2000 will come with 1GB of built-in storage, rectifying the fact that the original model didn’t have any built-in storage, making the purchase of a relatively expensive Vita memory card a practical requirement.

On the positive side, Sony is dropping the Vita’s proprietary USB/accessory connector, to be replaced with a standard microUSB connector.

It will be available in a range of colours: yellow, pink, white, gray, lime green and light blue. The PS Vita 2000 will be going on sale in Japan on October 10th for ¥18,980 JPY, or approximately $190 USD. No plans for release outside of Japan have been announced.
