Sony starts off their Japan Press Conference by showing off the newly redesigned PS Vita. Coming in various different colors (Black, Yellow, Blue, Red, White, Gray), the new system will be 20 percent lighter, 15 percent thinner and have a battery life that is about an hour longer then the previous incarnation of the PS Vita.
The handheld will run for 19,929 yen, which is about $200 and come with 1 GB memory card. No word on if it is coming to the U.S.
According to Destructiod, the parent company of game maker Atlus, Index Corporation, has filed registered a domain for Persona 5. The website says not to look too much into the registration, as the company might just be grabbing the domain so no one else can.
I know plenty of fans who might be excited. Especially Vita players who grabbed the awesome Persona 4 Golden last year. If an announcement does come, hopefully it comes to as many systems as possible.
Yesterday, Sony announced that the Playstation Store on the PS Vita would be getting a brand new Indie Games section like the PS3. To celebrate, a new trailer has been released showing off all the great indie games on and coming to the Vita.
I have had a PS Vita since day one and always felt that the system was a great place downloadable and indie games. With more than year within the Vita’s life cycle, it great to see the catalog of indie games Sony has built already. More trailers like this are necessary to show how special the Vita is and perhaps if they threw these into a couple of television commercials they might see more sales.
Walking Dead is coming to the Playstation Vita in a big way this year, with a Vita bundle including the first season of the game and the new 400 Days DLC packed in. I’m not quite sure how I feel about TellTale’s Walking Dead being on the Vita. I think I’d rather watch all the gut-wrenching action unfold on the big screen, but hey it can’t hurt. Here the teaser trailer for the upcoming DLC Walking Dead: 400 Days.
