February 20 might be a big deal in more ways than one.
Not only is just about everyone expecting Sony to announce the PlayStation 4 at that time, but there are also rumors that a new PlayStation Vita model will be unveiled, too.
According to various sources (as cited by Wololo.net ), a recently filed patent indicates a brand new Vita model. It seems Sony will replace the 3G iteration with a 4G upgrade, and that model will retain the original $299 price. Furthermore, there will be a "significant firmware update" that will supposedly deliver "a lot of requested features." Lastly, there's a chance we'll see a price drop for the memory cards, which is a good thing because that has been a sore spot for gamers ever since the portable first launched.
Is this enough, though? Or should the unit still be cheaper? Me, I just want to see some games for it.
