Sony’s confirmed that it’s developing an external battery pack for the PS Vita.
Currently the PS Vita battery life of around three to five hours, however Worldwide studios president Shuhei Yoshida has confirmed to IGN that Sony is looking to expand this via external means.
“If you’re flying from New York to San Francisco or vice versa, you’ll have no concerns [about the battery running out] if you have the additional external battery,” he said.
Quite where battery will go is a bit of a mystery, what with the back of the pad being used as a touchpad. We’ll just have to wait and see we guess.
