    I understand the need to upgrade to 4G, but IMO Sony should just terminate the cellular vitas altogether and focus fully on the Wi-Fi ones.

    Looks like it's the same size, just with new ports, or perhaps is intended (they just want to patent the new ports location, and keep secret a possible redesign).

    Okay so they just found out about this old patent... move on.

    Maybe that was the "patent pending" period.

    So this news is pa-tainted then? Great.

    And here I was thinking they would try to re-Vitalize the brand.

    I would kill for a Sony or Nintendo handheld with HDMI port, I guess this is one of the few devkits that are worth getting.
    oh wait.... it's a vita

    I seriously doubt Sony will release a HDMI Vita when they want to sell their new PS4

    At least the price of the vita is coming down!! If there isn't any significant changes between this and the old ps vita, then I would probably get old one since I have an old 'phat' television and not the HD tvs :( Yup, it's really hard reading any game menus on my ps3 because the resolution isn't right.

    That's like saying that you doubt McDonald's will keep their breakfast menu because most people go there to eat lunch, not breakfast.

    Home consoles and handheld consoles are two separate spheres entirely. That said, it's be pretty sweet to have the option to play your Vita games on the big screen (even if it'd be with a frame of some sort around the game proper since Vita games vary in resolution) via Remote Play on the next PlayStation and the other way around - play your PlayStation games on the Vita, and I mean all of them, not like with the current Remote Play. That's be incentive to own both consoles.

    There is no "new Vita", the patent refers to the development kits. I even posted a photo of a live specimen.
