A new report on Japanese website Hokanko-Alt has detailed some FCC filings with two new wireless chips that Sony have been working on. The model names of these chips are in line with those of the Vita line.
Whilst sales and support of the Vita suggest that it would be unlikely to see Sony invest in a new Vita, we now know that they’re holding a ‘Future of PlayStation’ event on September 7th that will detail the future of the PlayStation business.
It is predicted that the PlayStation Neo will be revealed at this event. Taking this into account, it’s completely plausible that Sony would announce a Vita if it could further benefit the PS4 business. Maybe you’re able to play PS4 games away from your console ALA Nintendo NX or something similar?
