Slim PS Vita to replace existing OLED model in Europe Sony has confirmed that the slimmer model of the PS Vita released in Japan last year will replace the existing OLED model of the handheld for the European markets.
Once inventory is drained for the old model, no more will be manufactured for the continent. "The PS Vita PCH-2000 series will replace the existing PS Vita PCH-1000 series as stock of the older model is exhausted," says the company.

Sony released the slim Vita in Japan last October, with a 20 percent slimmer and 15 percent lighter design. The model also has an HD five-inch LCD screen, has better battery life, 1GB internal storage and replaces Sony's proprietary charing port with a micro USB.

The slim model will hit the UK first on February 7th for 180.

I've just seen a photo comparison and the current "old" version is superior. The LCD I must admit does look slightly sharper but looks washed out colour wise. I'm sticking with my current version as I want to see rich colours when palying games and when synched with the PS4
