New PS Vita or Old PS Vita?

The new PS Vita or the Old PS Vita, that is the question!

The new PS Vita or the Old PS Vita, that is the question!

Lets compare the old PS Vita and the New PS Vita.

The new PS Vita will be available in six different colors in Japan on October 10th for $190, but sadly it is not likely it will release in the US. The new PS Vita is 20 percent thinner, 15 percent lighter, has better battery life, replaced its OLED screen with a LCD screen and has modest internal storage. The screen is bigger and it is also cheaper than the old PS Vita. The old PS Vita however, does not have internal storage and when it first came out and it burned holes in a lot of wallets.

If you base your decision on a more physical point of view then the new PS Vita looks more appealing. It is thinner and wider than the old PS Vita which will appeal to the gamers who don’t like having to look at a smaller screen. Although the new LCD screen of the new PS Vita shows the game in a less sharp picture. If you like a sharper image then you might want to consider the old PS Vita.

We have seen a similar approach of upgrading hand-held systems with Nintendo. They created the 3DS and then the 3DS XL. Sony has done the same by creating the PS Vita and then creating a new one that was thinner and lighter but bigger.

Which would you choose, new Vita or old Vita?
