Sony is Going to Reveal its “Slimmest” Launch in History

In a tease sent to IGN, it seems Sony is going to reveal a new slimmer model of one of their existing pieces of hardware. Set at the end of this month, Sony is inviting the press to a breakfast briefing in which they’ll reveal the “slimmest” launch in Playstation history.

What could it be? Despite Japan getting the slimmer, cheaper Playstation Vita, the West has yet to see its release. The Playstation Vita 2000 model is 20% percent thinner, 15% percent lighter, and also loses the gorgeous OLED screen for a plain old LCD display.

While this could be anything, it most definitely seems to be a final confirmation of when Western gamers can get their hands on the more affordable Playstation Vita slim. I wonder what they’ll call it – the Playstation Vita Slim, The PS Vita 2000, or maybe they’ll just keep the same name?
