At its Tokyo Game Show press conference, Sony announced two new Vita devices. The first is a slimmed down version of the original PS Vita, 20% thinner (183 x 85 x 15mm) and 15% lighter (219 grams), and offered in different colors. The 5-inch touchscreen is now an LCD panel instead of OLED, and the redesigned Vita will come with 1GB of internal storage. Sony claims that the new model will add an hour of battery life as well over the 2011 model. It'll go on sale in Japan on Oct 10. Sony's other Vita announcement is a ~$100 set top box called the PlayStation Vita TV, which will launch in Japan by the end of the year. The tiny white box will plug into a TV (up to 1080i) and play all the PSP and PS One games downloaded over PSN, with support for PS Vita games that don't require motion or touchscreen controls. You'll have to provide your own Dual Shock controller, however.
