Sony files patent application for updated version of portable device with two new ports.
A new version of the PlayStation Vita could include HDMI and USB ports. A patent application (via PatentBolt) filed last year--but published this month--details a new configuration of the device with additional ports.
The official PS Vita FAQ page states Sony has no plans to introduce a video output option for the device, though that information is only current as of August 2012.
No additional information was provided and a Sony representative declined to comment.
