With the release of the upcoming colorful batch of new PlayStation Vitas, the handheld will no longer charge via Sony’s proprietary chord. Replacing it will be a micro USB chord which can transfer data as well as power.
You’ll be happy to know PS Vita 2000 can charge with a smartphone charger with micro USB.
The new line of Vitas, dubbed the PCH-2000, will also be thinner, lighter, and sport an LED display instead of OLED. Japan can expect the new handheld this month, but no western release info is known yet.
