Sony's redesigned Vita hardware is coming to the U.S. next month
Sony has picked a date to launch its previously announced
$200 Borderlands 2
Vita bundle in North America: May 6, according a post
published on the PlayStation Blog today.
The product is noteworthy because it will include the Wi-Fi edition of Sony's new, redesigned PlayStation Vita hardware -- the PCH-2000 series.
The new Vita, which is thinner, lighter and more power-efficient than the original -- due in part to Sony's decision to replace the high-quality OLED screen with an LCD -- was announced last year in Japan
and recently launched
The Vita version of Borderlands 2
, which was announced at Sony's E3 press conference last year, will be included with the bundle and thus playable a week before its official May 13 launch. The bundle also comes with a proprietary 8GB Vita memory card.
