External Vita battery pack confirmed

Power solution in the works.

Sony is developing an external battery pack for the Vita to bump up its modest three to five hour battery life.

Worldwide studios president Shuhei Yoshida confirmed to IGN that it is working on the device, but didn't reveal how many hours of play it will add or what it'll cost.

"If you're flying from New York to San Francisco or vice versa, you'll have no concerns [about running out of power] if you have the additional external battery," he said.
