PS Vita Slim Coming To UK Feb 7, Will Cost £180

Today at a Sony press conference it was revealed that the PS Vita 2000, also known as the PS Vita Slim, will be coming to the UK on February 7 and will cost £180.

The PS Vita 2000 is apparently 20% slimmer and 15% lighter than the current models, it also has a new LCD screen and allows for an extra hour of gaming on the battery.

Personally I think this is a terrible move for Sony, you could get the current Vita last month for £99. I do not know why anyone would pay £80 to get a slightly thinner Vita with an arguably worse screen. If Sony really want to sell the Vita they need to make it cheaper, don’t confuse the market with a slightly different version at a higher price.

Let me know what you think of the PS Vita 2000, is it a pointless update or a must have addition to your gaming collection?
