Sony launched the slimmer, lighter PlayStation Vita PCH-2000 in Japan late last year and the refreshed portable has now made its way to the UK. Its launch price is lower – £180 (the original launched at £200) – and it features more internal storage and better battery life to boot.
Another change in the PCH-2000 compared to the original is that the 5″ qHD AMOLED has been replaced by an IPS LCD of the same resolution.
Pre-orders for the new PS Vita start tomorrow and the actual launch will be in a week on February 7. The £180 price works out to $300, noticeably pricier than the home market price of 19,000 yen, $185.
