The PS Vita has been considered by many a letdown, because it simply doesn’t have enough AAA titles and exclusives. It relies too heavily on ports and remakes, sadly and its only good thing are the inside games of the PSN. In comes the PlayStation Versa, a concept console created by Jose Tuzon, who sees the device as a Vita 3.0.

He also imagines a PS Vita 2.0 launched before this model, that will keep the public attached to the idea of portable gaming till the Versa comes out. The PS Versa could cost between $399 and $599 and it will come with a 6 to 6.4 inch screen with Full HD resolution, as well as L2/R2 and L3/R3 buttons. It will offer rumble and haptic feedback, screen vibrations and rely on 4 motors, quadrants under the screen.

Quad front facing speakers are in the mix as well and the designer sees this device as a controller replacement for the PS4 and PS5. It will have programmable LED notifications, a programmable light bar and 5 megapixel back and front cameras with flashes. Wireless A/V in/out is included, an extra 2 GB of RAM from the PS4’s 8 GB of GDDR5 for future OS updates, plus 512 GB or 1 TB of storage.

Port selection is very rich and includes two USB Type C ports, one Ethernet and full size HDMI. VITA game card slot systems will still be kept… What do you think of this console? Isn’t it too bricky?

    Thanks for putting it in the site and even streamlining the features/concept. Much appreciated.

    Yeah. It’s pretty thick. More of a Shield/SteamBoy/SmachZero/”gaming notebook” competitor (not pocket friendly) than an actual next gen VITA.

    I was kinda thinking of a 2020-2022 release so I don’t think making a VITA 1000 sized, battery powered portable console that lasts 2 and a half to 4 hours is realistic but who knows. Mobile stuff is still progressing well.

    The newest PS4 SKU power consumption is at 110-120 Watts but that does have an HDD and BluRay Drive (more power consumption) than the hypothetical PSVersa.

    A 10 Watt x86 APU with PS4 compute or better might easily be possible in 5-7 years.
