Been looking quite a bit at the Vita as have a PS4.

What I want to know is -

With my Android HTC one handset I can now buy a micro USB to HDMI cable for about £5 which allows me to connect to a large TV. The new slim has the micro USB as standard. Will this be able to feed the game action to a big TV? Will wait for a slim in the UK if so.

Any ideas?

I'm not sure, but your old pal Mr. google knows. I was considering waiting, but after looking at how much worse the screen looks on the new version, I went with the OLED original. It's been really great.

That would be too good to be true. Try looking into the Vita TV instead.

My phone did not have this feature over a year ago when I got it. HTC One S - and I never thought it would be able to. However, the micro USB connection can handle video output as I've done it with one of these:

Perhaps it's doable, since the cable/port is no longer proprietary. Safe to say that Sony won't allow it though.

To my knowledge the Vita 2000 doesn't have video-out.
