Sony is inviting select press to a breakfast briefing next week for the release of… something slim. Could it be the PS Vita 2000?

“Following the biggest launch in PlayStation history, join us for an introduction to the slimmest,” reads the invite.”

The event takes place January 30th at 9am in London. Last year Sony released the PS Vita 2000 in Japan – it’s 20 percent thinner and 15 percent lighter than the existing model, and features an LCD screen rather than OLED. It also comes with 1GB of built-in memory.
