A Sony invitation received by IGN hints at the reveal of another Slim device from the company:

 

“You are invited to an exclusive breakfast briefing with PlayStation. Following the biggest launch in PlayStation history, join us for an introduction to the slimmest.”

The briefing is set to take place from 9 to 11 AM on Thursday, January 30th.

 

Since an even slimmer PS3 isn’t necessary and the PS4 was just released, it seems likely that that PS Vita Slim will be revealed during the briefing. The handheld has already hit shelves in Japan, sporting a body that’s 15 percent lighter and 20 percent thinner than the original. It also gets an extra hour of battery life and replaces the OLED screen with a 5-inch LCD display.
