PlayStation Vita Slim confirmed for US [UPDATED]
At a Sony event today, Sony confirmed that the slimmer version of their portable device will also be coming to the US in a bundle along with Borderlands 2
The story below has been updated with information from Sony's VP of marketing John Koller via the official PlayStation Blog.
Sony confirmed today that the PlayStation Vita Slim (also called the PlayStation Vita 2000), a lighter, smaller version of the Vita handheld will be coming to the US sometime "this spring."
We've had hands-on with the device since it's European launch last week, and we also have a photo comparison between the OLED original and the LED update right here. But what exactly is different?
- 15% lighter and 20% slimmer than the original
- LCD instead of the OLED of the original -- our UK editors haven't noticed a significant difference in visual fidelity, but we're putting together a more in-depth photographic comparison
- Longer battery life: 4-6 hours versus the original Vita's 3-5 hours
- 1GB internal memory (same as the original)
In addition to the standalone hardware we're already familiar with, the wi-fi-only system will also ship in a Borderlands 2 bundle. This bundle will cost the same as the current Vita model ($200), but it will come packaged with:
- Borderlands 2 for Vita
- 8GB memory card
- Borderlands 2:
- Will let you cross-save with Vita, comes with
- All of the Borderlands 2 DLC packs (though this is likely packaged with all versions of the Vita game)
- Four-player online multiplayer
