Vita Slim coming to the US for $200, includes Borderlands 2

16

The new slimmer Vita-2000 model is coming to the US this spring. It'll debut in a new Borderlands 2 Limited Edition Vita Bundle which includes the system, the game, six DLC packs, and an 8GB PS Vita memory card.

As previously explained, the new Vita model is 15% lighter, 20% slimmer, and includes 1GB of built-in storage. Controversially, it drops 3G connectivity and replaces the system's original OLED screen with an LCD. However, the revisions allow the Vita to gain an extra hour of gameplay time on a single charge. You can see all the changes in a new sizzle video from Sony:

      I think the Vita dropping 3G is about as controversial as the Xbox 360 not including 56k

        Can you use 3G to connect to your ps4?

          you couldnt use the 3G for much. mainly just friends list stuff and leaderboards. you weren't able to use it for playing games online or downloading games.

        Still expensive! But this one at least comes with an 8GB, so that's something, at least.

      I've been thinking about buying the original Vita as new for 90€, but it really pisses me off that it doesn't come with a memory card and those are not found anywhere with cheap prices.

      Dumb Sony and their proprietary memory cards. Dumbest move ever from that company.

      The memory cards are still insanely expensive for their capacities, but good thing I managed to get a 16gb on sale.

      I actually really like this handheld, and I'm not bummed at all that I got one about a month ago. I hear the LCD isn't as good as the OLED, and 1 extra hour doesn't mean a whole lot to me.

        For people who spend insane amounts of money on new video games all the time, "gamers" sure are a bunch of weeping vaginas.

          If you paid for something you have as much right to be critical about it as you can praise it.

        I'm in the same boat, got one as a Christmas gift and after looking at info on the new one I don't really mind.
