PS Vita 1000 OLED and Vita 2000 LCD Screen Difference Corrected by Japanese Developer Via Tint Filter

on August 10, 2014 6:30 PM

Many weren’t exactly happy about the change to a LCD screen with the PS Vita 2000. Other think that the colors on the OLED screen of the PS Vita 1000 are too bright, so the Japanese publisher Prototype decided to solve the problem and try to make everyone happy with a tint filter.

Prototype’s new PS Vita games, starting with the port of the classic PC visual novel Clannad which will be released on August 14th, will come with a special tint filter that will equalize the screen for the different models of Sony’s portable console.

The filter will come with three settings: “No” will leave the screen with its original coloration, for those planning to play on PS Vita TV or prefer the natural colors of their PS Vita. “Type A” is meant to mute the colors of the PS Vita 1000 a bit, to make them look closer to a PC screen. “Type B” removes the slight yellowish hue of the PS Vita 2000’s LCD screen.

Below you can see comparison shots between a PS Vita 2000 and a EIZO FlexScan EV2736W-FS monitor with the “No” setting and the “Type B” setting respectively.

The yellowish/greenish hue is definitely a lot less visible in the second shot, and the picture is a lot closer to the original.

According to Prototype’s announcement, the filter will be available in all its PS Vita games following Clannad, including Rewrite, Flowers, Le Labyrinthe De La Grisaia, Le Eden De La Grisaia and Gakuen Heaven 2: Double Scramble.
