Hands-on the new with PS Vita

PS Vita's new design has tons of tweaks and adjustments, aside from the obvious thinner design and weight reduction. The Start, Select, Power, and PS buttons have been raised slightly, making them easier to press.

The grips on the back of the system have grown a bit, resulting in a more comfortable experience and less accidental taps on the rear touch pad. The edges of the system are more rounded, which just feels better. The display is now LCD based, but I didn't...

Sony Launches World's Thinnest TV, Slimmer Than Slice of Toast

50°
296w ago - The £3,000 TV, the latest in the Japanese firm's Bravia range, is just 9.9mm thick. That is 60 TIMES slimmer than a typical set from the 1950s.

It is so thin because tiny LED lights usually illuminating the flat screen from behind have been placed round the sides.

Spokesman Christian Brown said: "Sony is continuously striving to lead the way with advanced innovations in TV technology and cutting edge design. We're excited to see our customers' reactions."

THE 1969 moon landing has been voted the best "World First" captured on TV, according to a Sony poll to promote its new tellies. Barack Obama's inauguration was second and the assassination of John F Kennedy third.

No word on a US release yet, but there's a Nintendo press conference scheduled tomorrow where we're sure they'll have more details for those of us across the Pacfic.

The DSi will also be slightly smaller and have a larger screen than the current DS Lite, and will include additional photo editing software, built-in memory for saving picture and game data, and an SD card slot.

The SD card slot will allow easy transfer of photos and data from the DSi to the Wii (and other SD card-enabled devices), while the built-in memory will help store a new wave of downloadable DS games that will be able to be purchased through the Wii Shopping channel, as well as a brand-new online shop accessible via the DSi.
