It’s a close call. The new version is a little lighter and has better battery life. On the other hand, you lose the OLED screen with the new version and get an LED screen. The OLED display is a highlight of the Vita to me, with vibrant colors and dark blacks. I don’t know if they have released the pricing for the Vita Slim in the US yet, but in the UK the new version is as expensive and the old one. If the new version was significantly cheaper I would say get that one, but if they are around the same price, I wouldn’t want to give up the OLED display so I would stick with the original.
