PlayStation Vita Slim launches in North America alongside Borderlands 2 Vita

The day has come: Sony has released the PlayStation Vita Slim in North America.


The system launches in black as part of the Borderlands 2 Limited Edition PS Vita Bundle, which includes game and six DLC packs and an 8GB PS Vita memory card for $199.99.

The system is 20% slimmer, and approximately 15% lighter than the original version, with new rounded edges. It also comes with 1GB of built-in memory, an extended battery life for four to six hours of game play, and a high-definition LCD display.

All sorts of games are coming this summer to Vita, which you can play on new slim model: Soul Sacrifice Delta on May 13; Sly Cooper Collection on May 27; Helldivers in summer; and later this year Minecraft, Metrico, Tales of Hearts R, Freedom Wars, and Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number.

You can also grab the God of War Collection for it from today.
