According to a tweet spotted by some NeoGaf users, on April 1 Sony trademarked in Japan a portable “LCD screen game device” that, inevitably, brings to mind PS Vita.
The trademark could be, in fact, a new Vita model, perhaps codenamed PS Vita 3000, and we are able to see some interesting points on the images. First of all, we can appreciate an unidentified port on the bottom of the device. Rumors can’t be stopped at this moment, and many are pointing that this new Vita model could incorporate an HDMI port in order to be able to play its games on our TV’s.
Furthermore, some interesting outlines can be seen next to the L1 and R1 buttons, which could mean that Sony might be considering to add real L2 and R2 buttons to the handheld.
The truth is that, at this moment, we don’t have any official info on this, so we will have to wait until Sony makes a statement.
