The new PlayStation Vita will be launched this spring, coming in a Borderlands 2 bundle. This was confirmed today at a PlayStation media event in Santa Monica. It will include the game with six DLC packs (Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate’s Booty, Mr. Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage, Psycho Character Class, Mechromancer Character Class, Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 1 and the Collector’s Edition Pack.), an 8GB PS Vita memory card, and will all retail for $199.99.
For this new model, battery life is now 4-6 hours for gaming, and a new LCD screen replaces the current version's OLED one. Its shape has changed a bit -- it's more rounded and a bit more portable.
It's the same one we saw released in Japan last year, and Europe earlier this year.
PlayStation®Vita (PS Vita) is the ultimate portable gaming system. The new PS Vita Wi-Fi (PCH-2000 series) system comes with a redesigned architecture that is approximately 20 percent slimmer and 15 percent lighter than the original version, with new rounded edges. Incorporating 1GB of internal memory, the new PS Vita system features extended battery life of four-to- six hours of gameplay. In addition, a high-definition liquid crystal display (LCD) has been adopted, delivering the vivid and crisp visuals that PS Vita games are known for.
