  By a show of hands, Ego-friends, how many of you own a PS Vita? …Uh huh, okay. I see you there. Not too many, but I salute all of you with your hands raised. High five, brother. All round to my place, for blackjack and hookers. 

The thing about owning a Vita is, it’s a little like being a Nightmare Before Christmas fan before Disney whored it out. Or like supporting a half-assed sports team before they unexpectedly kick ass all over the season, and several million new ‘fans’ suddenly come out of the woodwork. It’s a cult favorite, and you’re the most special of all mothereffin’ special snowflakes if you’re on board with it.

The Vita had so much potential. That’s some power the lil’ handheld has, and while Sony were getting a bit carried away when they spouted all that ‘home console-quality games on a portable’ BS, it’s a pretty sweet piece of tech. Sadly, it’s now more or less just core fans still using the thing, and enjoying its pretty sexy library of JRPGs and hunting games and the like.

It’s pretty much down and out now, sadly. Vita is ignored and forgotten at trade shows, never spoken about, like a scandalous family secret about that uncle who did that thing with the goats. But there’s at least one guy at Sony Japan who isn’t ready to say goodbye just yet.

Out of nowhere, Kotaku drops the announcement that two new models are hitting Japan on December 1st. The above pimped out red one, and this silver number right here:

That’s one each, for the two dedicated Vita fans worldwide.
