Vita Slim vs. original Vita: Should you upgrade?

Sony has finally launched its first redesign to the PlayStation Vita in the US. Should you ditch your old handheld for a new one?

Nintendo has made a mint off of re-releasing its various consoles, so it seems only reasonable that Sony would follow in its footsteps. The PSP saw a slimmer redesign after a few years in market and now the Vita has received the same treatment.
