Announced for a Spring localization back in February, the Vita 2000 (aka Vita Slim) may finally have a release date. Retailers Amazon and GameStop have now listed the handheld (which is being bundled with Borderlands 2) for a release date of May 6, 2014. Previously, both retailers had the bundle at a placeholder date of May 31, 2014.
Interestingly enough, both retailers have also bumped up the release date of the standalone copy of Borderlands 2 for Vita to a release date of May 13, 2014. This is obviously a later date than the bundle – by one week. A possible explanation for this is the fact that the bundle comes with a digital download code and the standalone copy of the game will be a physical game card. Whatever the reason, the release date for both the Vita and Borderlands 2 for Vita is getting closer.
PlayStation has yet to confirm the official release date, but that announcement may be coming sooner than later.
