'Slim' Review PlayStation Vita PCH-2000: An Improved Many Aspects

The updated version of her laptop Sony PlayStation Vita, the PCH-2000 series is 20% thinner and 15% lighter than the original model which was first released in 2012.

Despite the slimmer form factor, perhaps the most important change is the move from an OLED to an LED screen. This means the new Vita now suffers from some slight motion blur, which is most noticeable during fast moving games and when quickly switching through menu screens.

Colours, meanwhile, aren't quite as deep as they were on the original Vita, especially blacks, which OLED screens are fantastic at representing.

That said, the differences in screen quality is only really noticeable when compared side by side with the original Vita. On its own, the new screen is still gorgeous and very crisp, so ultimately this isn't a deal breaker.

While the screen is slightly disappointing, the slim Vita actually offers a number of improvements.

The Start, Select and PlayStation buttons are now easier to press, the back panel is smaller so you're less likely to accidentally touch it with your fingers, battery life has improved by one hour and the device now charges over micro USB.


The slim Vita also introduces 1GB of internal storage. This is certainly a welcome move, but 1GB is just about enough for a few small downloadable games. Also, when you take into account that using a memory card will bypass internal storage entirely, for most users this will actually be useless.

The new design also appears less premium than the original Vita - it lacks the metallic trimmings and smooth plastic finish, for example - the pay off is a device that's more comfortable to hold thanks to matte plastic surroundings and a more rounded form factor.

It's probably a matter of taste, but personally I prefer more plastic-feeling handhelds, which beg to be played and not safely stored away in a carry case. Nintendo does this perfectly, and this new slim Vita feels closer to that than the smartphone-styled original Vita, which I was constantly afraid of scratching.
