Let the speculation begin. On April 1, 2015 Sony filed for a trademark on a potential new model of the PlayStation Vita. There’s very little information to go on, and only vague design sketch to go off, but there are some differences between this design and the Vita 2000. The question that has arisen is whether this is the first look at the Vita 3000 or just an old trademark coming to light?
The Vita in the sketch almost seems to be a combination of the original Vita and the updated Vita slim. It appears as though the SIM card slot of the original 3G version has reappeared along the left-hand side. The charging port on the bottom is also clearly not the micro-usb port on the current Vita and resembles the proprietary charging port.
The rear touchpad also appears to be much larger without finger grips that became a lot more dominant in the 2000 model.
Hopefully we won’t have to wait long to find out more details behind the trademark, but in the meantime the speculation machine is going to go into overdrive and dissect every minute little difference in this sketch.
What do you think this is?
