New Vita uses micro USB cable to charge

Wait for it: The new model PlayStation Vita will use a micro USB port to charge, moving away from Sony‘s typical proprietary hardware. Instead, it looks like the PCH-2000 series handheld will use more standard smartphone cables, which means one less cord on your desk.

The news came via outspoken Sony president Shuhei Yoshida, who posted the picture to Twitter.

You’ll be glad: when using a PS Vita 2000, it can be charged [with a] smartphone Micro USB.

There’s still a catch: The shiny new Vita 2000 has so far only been confirmed for Japan, where it launched last week. At this stage, we don’t know when – or if – the new handheld, in its six shiny colours, will be making it to other territories.
