    Knew it would happen, it was inevitable

    It may be inevitable, but at this point it's just a rumor, and based on the article they're just discussing the idea of it.

    No, stop with all the rumors.
    They already reduced the price/cost of the original PSP so that it could be sold in tandem with the Vita for people who were looking for a cheaper portable gaming system.

    If anything they'd make it bigger judging by comments made in other interviews.

    Well, it depends if you like a larger, but more pixelated screen. What's the ppi anyway.

    If it were anything like DS -> XL, it'd be fine. That said, it all depends on how it would be handled.

    Yes, it does. A little bigger wouldn't hurt. @220ppi, bigger is fine. (to a point). But that said, I love the display on the iPhone, even though it's not as large as most androids. So a little smaller wouldn't hurt too much either...

    lmao...
    Sony has released a "slimmer" version of every damned console they've ever made... Every single one of those redesigns was well received. Why would they not continue the trend?

    Every one of Nintendo's consoles has had a redesign (excluding the GC since it wasn't worth redesigning...)

    So I ask again... What makes this worthy of the frontpage?

    who's talking about it? It seems to me that a "reporter" heard of discussions of making it smaller and ran with it. Don't you think "making it smaller" is discussed while every electronic device is designed? It being discussed now does not mean it will be designed/released any time soon...

    You think Nintendo weren't discussing making the 3DS smaller after it's initial reception, or even before it was released? I'll go on record right now and say we'll see a 3DS redesign far sooner in its lifecycle than we see a Vita redesign... Write that down.

    Obviously we need to apply the same reading standards across every article....3DS lite coming this season....

    This isn't news....it's not even probable at this stage. It's an illustration of the different objectives between hardware engineers and designers. Is it surprising they want different things? No. Is it likely at some point the console will have a redesign? Yes, almost every console does these days. Are there going to be more consoles in years to come? Yes....QUICK WRITE A NEWS ARTICLE! CONSOLES TO CONTINUE EXISTING IN THE FUTURE!

    And again....the original article for those interested so the headcases don't bend reality too much.

    And that, boys and girls, is what happens when you jump on a "news" story without vetting the original source...

    I don't care what games Sony has announced for Vita... Until I see them on the shelves thats when I will believe it.... and yes I am still bitter over the "launch" game for PSP called Gran Turismo... Waited for ever then it sucked :(

    Maybe when Twisted Metal comes out on my PS3 my anger with Sony will subside a bit... lol

    Spread the rumor, people will wait for PS Vita Slim not buing fat, profits will decrease. For me it looks like competitors viral marketing.
