Not very surprising if true. Although I still believe the OLED on the OG Vita is worth the improvements of the new, slim one.

Haven't got the email myself. Take a screenshot?

If we get all the colours I might be tempted to pick a second Vita up.

Does it come with a price-drop? I might consider a second one for better battery life, NA account and local multiplayer.

Is the screen really crap? I've seen some people saying it has less ghosting, better colors, and that overall the new one is an improvement. I'm torn if i should wait or not.

Didn't Sony rollout the 64Gb card along with the slim in Japan? So it could be announced tomorrow

I hope for a price drop. I'd consider trading in my vita for a new one if its cheap to do so. Still not sure if I want to lose dat OLED though.

Not sure if I want the new Vita either tbh...

Its simply dat OLED..., plus pretty happy with the quality of the original Vita too.

Not sure whether I want to get a spare Vita 1000 for if my Vita now gets too scratched up to use, or get a slim one and perhaps keep both?

Price will still likely be higher than the 129 it costs to buy a new Vita right now or the 89 it costs to buy a used one. Unless it's going to be priced at 100 new, I don't see the point.

Would have been better to focus on sane pricing for the memory cards as well as releasing the 64gb over here.

They did? Let's hope they do announce it tomorrow. I'm getting close to filling my 32gb and would like to buy a sensibly priced 64gb...

The UK press didn't get hands on with the new Vita.

I believe the MSRP is 170.

I just use a 8gb and buy every game physical. Its just not worth going digital at those prices. Digital only is really nice on vita though because the game file sizes aren't huge.

I'm cool with my Vita 1000. I even kept my Phat PSP for so long the 3rd PSP had come out before I even thought of upgrading. Pretty sure I'll be doing the same for my Vita.

Still holding out a tiny bit of hope the delay was long enough for them to work the OLED into the 2000 model, after getting feedback. Because otherwise, from what I've heard, the 2000 is a step up in pretty much every single way.

I'll probably bite even if it has an LCD screen, especially if they drop the price. I'm overdue for a Vita. But there's always hope to be crushed.

Sensibly priced Vita memory cards? I wish. My 16GB card is begging to be replaced, but last time I looked the 32GB was very expensive. Can't imagine the 64GB being anywhere near sensible.

We don't know yet. It could be a Euro exclusive model like the PSP E1000.

It's probably just the one Japan got.

If you have plus, you'll quickly find that 8gb or even 16gb isn't enough.
