Headline Of The Week
The PS Vita Slim is officially on its way to Europe on February 7th 2014, retailing for roughly £180. The slimline version of the Vita, which is lighter than a standard Vita and features a HD 5” LCD display rather than the original OLED screen, had previously only been available in Japan. For its European release, the Slim Vita will include a 1GB internal memory card and offer an additional hour of gameplay time between recharges, although we have been denied the variety of colours that Japan currently receives.
In addition Sony have also announced the ‘Indie Mega Game Pack’, which offers a Vita and ten games (Alien Breed, Thomas Was Alone, Velocity Ultra, Men’s Room Mayhem, Coconut Dodge Revitalised, LIMBO, Hotline Miami, Total Recoil, Superfrog HD and Floating Cloud God Saves The Pilgrims HD) for £199. The other option is to get a Vita with a 4GB memory card and a PS Store voucher to download the 10 games for an additional £25.
