    Rumor: New Vita, larger screen, twice the RAM, pre TGS reveal

    Translated quote from Magic Box
    Japanese newspaper Tokyo Keizai reported a rumor that Sony is set to reveal a new PS Vita model in September before the Tokyo Game Show. The new model PCH-2000 will have a 6.3" display manufactured by Samsung (screen size of the current model is 5"), and the resolution will remain at 960 x 554 pixels. The amount of RAM will increase from 512MB to 1GB, to allow more programs to run in the background, the amount of RAM used by games will be unchanged (meaning games are still compatible between old and new models). In addition, the design of the new model will be more in-line with the PS4 design; and the system will launch with new game titles.
    wow at twice the ram.
    Time to pick up a vita if this is true
    I wonder when a nuclear warhead goes off, does the frame rate of real life drop?

    They should consider reconstructing the way the Vita is developed for before they even think of a console redesign.

    I've owned a Vita from day one and it would be disgusting for customers who've had one to be pushed aside with a new release.

    It doesn't need a redesign it needs some f'n quality games to get people attracted to it to start with. They can make as many redesigns, slims, spec changes as they want, the same thing will happen with the current design if they don't get dev support with some big game changing, console selling titles.

    Anyone who already owns a Vita would say this, I know that feel, I felt burned after buying the PSP 1000 and the 2000 had double the RAM. This is exactly why I waited on the Vita 2000.

    BUT: The Vita has 960X544, not 554, right? Unless they just mistranslated/made a mistake there.

    Man screw Vita if Sony if it does this...I mean it's good but what if you are an early adopter? I don't know about the RAM..if it's only for additional apps, seems redundant as Vita manages as is just fine.

    You know they did the same exact thing with PSP, right? Games won't use that additional RAM and be locked to Vita 2000. It'll just make the system more stable overall, something they shouldve done with PS3.

    yeah man too right, people aren't buying the Vita because they're worried the RAM isn't good enough or the screen should be an inch bigger, $#@! needs games!

    I agree that vita needs games before new hardware

    Yeah but it's kinda unrelated. Sony aren't doing this to get more sales they're doing it to reduce production costs. Maybe the upgrade to 1GB is costing them next to nothing rather than putting in 512MB again. It's only to make the system more stable, they aren't upgrade the VRAM.

    I don't see them increasing the screen almost an inch and a half and keeping the same resolution... That's why I said fake. If the vita was a huge success by now then sure I could see a new variant

    Hardware update will hype almost noone for sure. Sony knows that too.

    Sony needs to focus on selling the vita before doing a redesign.

    I agree that enlarging the screen by 1", doubling RAM or changing from 3G to 4G will change nothing at the moment. You're right that Vita needs more games and that's what Bloober Team is doing. Have you tried our games?

    Yeah it really does need games, I'm tired of all these ports. Minus Persona 4 Golden, that was epic.

    I'd buy it.

    But it doesn't make sense. I mean, why split the install base in half by having the new model be technically better... that means half your users can do stuff that others can't

    Not really, devs will still be limited to 512MB RAM, the lowest common denominator, most of which is reserved for the system anyway.

    Like Aaron said, this is being done since the psp days.
    PSP 1000 - 32MB
    PSP 3000 - 64MB

    the games remain unchanged because they don't get access to the additional ram

    What Vita needs is a price drop and less expensive memory cards. The price for memory is nothing short of highway robbery.

    My thoughts as well, they do this and the Vita will sell. Actually Sony should just bundle the Vita with the ps4. People will buy that bundle.
