    Unless they are going to do yet another PS3 re-design it's highly likely to be the 2000 and/or the Vita TV.

    There's no guarantee that the information will be fed to us on the day either, but if it IS the 2000/TV what odds would you get for them to be released on the 22nd February?

    I'll hold off importing one then...

    February 22nd is the day the PSVita launched in North America and Europe (Dec 17th in Japan).

    As for what they're going to reveal, it'll either be the slim or PSVita TV IMO.

    If it is the "Vita Slim", I'll be terribly disappointed if it's not announced in conjunction with a price drop on memory cards and/or the 64gb card shipping in the west.

    PS Vita TV to me seems much more favourable, though I'd question the motives of Sony to announce it in Europe - where streaming isn't as predominant as it is here in North America.

    I really doubt that the western "2000" will have the OLED.

    I just hope that if it is coming, they bring the colour options. We still only have the black model here.

    I agree with you on that.

    As for colours, I'm hopeful as well, but I have a sneaking suspicion that we would get a roll-out.

    I agree. They wouldn't re-bundle the OLED with the new model for the Western release, no matter how many people have gone and complained about the LCD screen's "inferiority". That'd be a waste of resources since they already have the Japanese 2000 made with the LCD screen. It will probably exactly the same as the Japanese 2000, aside from the Circle and X Buttons having swapped functions, like normal transitions between Japanese and Western systems.

    I do agree that the color options would be a great thing to do. If, and I stress the if, they brought all of the Japanese 2000 colors to the West, it would be pretty awesome. I really like some of those color schemes.

    I know, I need that green/white one in my life. I'll still keep my 1000, my plan is to get that one modified.

    @Tyler As much as I love the Vita I have no idea what you would do with 3 of them...

    @Murphy the reason we don't have many colour options for systems over here is because of product SKUs and facings. In Japan apparently they're content to just have all the systems in the back room, but retailers work differently here. They're pretty nit-picky about planograms (dumb word - refers to how you allocate shelf-space) and organizing stuff by SKU (The term isn't used in practice according to its definition, it's a little weird.) They might very well bring over multiple colour schemes but I'm not entirely sure I'd take that bet.
