The PS Vita has been somewhat disappointing over its life and so have recent handheld consoles in general, the emergence of mobile phone and tablets have transferred the consumer base onto a more multi-tasking devices. In the US at least, the PS Vita will be launching with a new colour scheme which might entice fans of the handheld to buy into the experience, or more likely it’s just a money shaming gimmick.
The colour in question will be Aqua Blue which will stand out considering US buyers have been limited to either Black or White options up until now. The basic device will be the same, there won’t be any hardware improvements and under the shiny colour will still be the second generation Vita which is currently out on the market. The Recommended Retail Price will be $199.99, so $200 dollars then.
Below is two further screenshots of the handheld, as you can see, it’s quite striking but other than that, it’s the same. Sony have informed fans that it’s better to pre-order the console as of now, as it “won’t be around for long” It will be interesting to note how this device fares within the market considering game developer support is slowly losing interest in the PS Vita, it remains to be seen how sales will fare.
