PS Vita Slim Reveal To Occur In Europe Tomorrow

Last week several game outlets, including IGN UK, received an invitation from Sony teasing the reveal of “the slimmest” hardware yet in the Playstation ecosystem.

This can only pertain to either Playstation 3, Playstation 4, and PS Vita. But this event only makes sense for the latter, being that the PS4 just released, and the PS3 already has a “super slim” model. The slim PS Vita model is already available in Japan, and has been for several months now.

IGN received an email from a reader that all but confirms that this European-only event is in fact the reveal of the slim model for European, and most likely Western, audiences.

The email is associated with online retailer ShopTo.net. The email contained ads to such games as Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition, Fable Anniversary, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, Elder Scrolls Online, etc. But it also contained the following:


The reveal will happen in just a matter of hours. To speculate, the slim model might decrease in price below the $199.99 MSRP. The 64g memory card might also be available in Europe and the West, as it is only currently available in Japan.
