No handholding here

The end times are here for Australian gamers. That's right, Sony's latest revision of the PlayStation Vita will be available in the Land Down Under on 4th June. The redesigned portable is significantly smaller that its older sibling, but ditches the notoriously lush OLED screen. Shipping with 1 GB of internal memory, the Aussie version will set you back a cool $269.95.

To be honest, we're not huge fans of the new hardware here at Push Square, particularly that bewilderingly high price point. As we said in our review, it feels like a bit of a step back from the original model. So, in other words, get thee to a video game retailer, as the undisputedly superior SKU will soon be disappearing off store shelves.

Will you be picking up the new slim Vita, or is your original portable still going strong? Give us a shout in the comments section below.
