Question about new the PS Vita model (PCH-2000)

10 replies 737 views Edited Sep 14, 2013

I read that the new PS Vita model has a micro USB Type B port. What is it's purpose and is it replacing the "mystery accessory port" on the old PS Vita model? Also has the 3G been permanently discontinued?

 

So is this an accurate assessment of the new slim PS Vita?

 

Pros:

- Lighter

- Thinner

- 1GB internal storage

- micro USB Type B port

 

Cons:

- less impressive screen

- no 3G version

i wouldnt be suprised if the 3g version was discontinued, it was really annoying because you would have it on standby listening to music walking wherever your going and it would go off standby just to ask you to use the 3g even if you didnt have a plan! and from what i understand about the usb, i think they are just getting rid of the charger part of it.

and that is a good assesment on the vita, though the pros really arnt pros at all, especially at the same price. they just knocked the price off 100 dollars, my guess is they will try to phase out the phat vitas with the better screens. right now i would tell people dont bother with the light version.

You know you can just turn off the 3G in the settings, right? Anyway, I'm glad I have an OLED screen PS Vita. I would like to have a lighter/thinner PS Vita with the internal storage, but I don't want to downgrade the screen. I guess I'll just stick with what I have.

im learning this now? and i was forced to sell mine, i was planning on getting the assasins creed bundle just because the white vita. but i never got it so now i have nothing. but still, the 1 gig will fill up fast with updates anyways so you have to get a new card. the new vita really isnt worth it. now if it had 64 gigs built in memory, then maybe iwould think about it.

Are you out of your bloody mind? O.o You do know you have to pay for going over your data limit right? Something like remote play would suck up your data faster than you could believe. Look at the product page for Netflix. It has a warning which states it is highly recommended to not use Netflix over 3G, due to this hidden cost. Same concept for remote play, as it IS basically streaming gameplay.

Is the battery actually better? The one that's in the original PS Vita is 2210 mAh. Have they said what the specs for the new battery will be?

You can not play Netflix over 3g connection on the Vita. I never tried remote play, and never wanted to pay the high data costs. Now my android allows me to create a hot spot and my Vita runs fine on it, I no longer use the 3g anymore.

Last time I tried to Remote Play over a 3G Connection it told me I had to use Wi-Fi, so you can't use 3G for Remote Play.
