Yes sir – with a few more tweaks as well.
According to the translation of the SCEJA conference today, the new model (PCH-2000) will include an extra hour of battery life and features an LCD instead of the original’s OLED. A microUSB connector has been used (instead of the proprietary connector from the first model) as well as the addition of a 1GB of internal memory. It will be available in six colours (white, blue, yellow, pink, grey, and black) and is WIFI-only.
It will be available October 10th for 19929 yen ($200 USD) in Japan.
This new model is also getting a new game pack, which comes with some pre-installed games and a memory card. There’s no launch date yet, but it’s priced at 24,129 yen ($240 US). As a bonus, with each purchase of this new Vita pack you will receive 90 days of PlayStation Plus for free.
