More Pictures of the New PCH-2000 PS Vita Model Show New LCD Screen, Comparison with Old PS Vita and 3DS

Yesterday we reported that the new PCH-2000 PS Vita Model is being exposed to the public scrutiny at a few stores in Tokyo, and today more pictures surfaced, showing some very interesting elements of the new model, including close shots of the new LCD screen, some direct comparison shots with the form factor and the OLED screen of the old model and even with the screen of a 3DS XL.

You can check them all out in the gallery below, courtesy of Twitter users Rorikonnane, Ciki_Satoru_00q and Hiro_1998. Comments praise how light and thin the new model is, even if the screen is definitely a little less bright and shiny compared to the old one, also showing a bit more of a yellowish tint that is common with LCD screens. That said, it’s evidently still leaps and bounds better than the screens of the 3DS XL.

It’s important to mention that the shot with the 3DS XL shows it in comparison with the old PS Vita (for some reason). In order to compare the new PCH-2000 PS Vita with the 3DS XL you’ll have to see the two pictures taken by Hiro_1998 side by side. I photoshopped them together and marked the right PS Vita at the bottom of the gallery for your convenience. Since they’re taken in the same conditions with the same camera, they’re still quite telling.

Update: added another shot by Jyu_kk showing a comparison using Uncharted: Golden Abyss.
