Last year, Sony revealed and released a new, slimmer version of the PlayStation Vita in Japan. More recently, the system has been confirmed for release in Europe, and now, we have confirmation of the system’s release in the U.S. The new PS Vita Wi-Fi model (PCH-2000 series) will be available this Spring, and it’s coming in a new bundle – the Borderlands 2 Limited Edition PlayStation Vita Bundle.
The bundle, which will retail at a MSRP of $199.99, will includes the following:
- Slim PS Vita system (PCH-2000) in black
- Borderlands 2 (download code)
- Six Borderlands 2 DLC packs
- 8GB PS Vita memory card
The new Vita Slim features are highlighted in the following video and PS Blog description:[youtube http://youtu.be/g0jSRjHxETQ]
The new PS Vita Wi-Fi model is approximately 20-percent slimmer and 15-percent lighter than the original version, with rounded edges to fit comfortably in your hands. The new model comes with 1GB of internal memory built into the system, and its 5-inch front touchscreen has a new high-definition liquid crystal display (LCD), giving you a high quality image that provides the same deep, immersive gaming experience that’s at the core of the PS Vita system.
You won’t need to worry about purchasing an extra PS Vita memory card to play Borderlands 2 out of the box – the limited edition bundle comes with an 8GB memory card. Also, the battery life of the new PS Vita system has increased to 4-6 hours of game play, up from 3-5 hours in the current model, and about 7 hours of video play, up from 5 hours from the current model. – PlayStation Blog
