Sony to reveal the 'slimmest' launch in its history

New, 86 comments

Sony is inviting press to a breakfast briefing at the end of the month to introduce the "slimmest" launch in PlayStation history, according to an invitation sent to IGN for the event.

So far there is no word on what the company plans to showcase. The invitation in full only teases what's to come, reading: "Following the biggest launch in PlayStation history, join us for an introduction to the slimmest."

However, a North American and European release for the PS Vita Slim is rumored. The system, shown in the video below, is currently available in Japan and features a model that is 20 percent thinner than the original device, as well as 15 percent lighter. Likewise, it replaces the original OLED screen with a 5-inch LCD display.

We've contacted Sony for further information on the reveal and will update in due course.
