For those of you that were waiting for the newer slim model to arrive in North America have less than a month to wait.

Announced via IGN and as part of the US Blog’s Borderlands 2 news, Sony have revealed that you will be able to pick up the slim Vita with Borderlands 2 on May 6th. Comprising of a black 2000, a download copy of Borderlands 2 and an 8GB memory card the package will set you back $199.99.

It’s also the only way to get Borderlands 2 early – the full release will be a week later in North America. Other region dates have yet to be confirmed, and we will ask Sony for more information on prices/colours for just the unit on its own.

I got my hands on the 2000 in February a jotted my thoughts down here, but what do you make of the news? Planning on picking one up?

  • Very nice. Only one short month until we can enjoy both the Slim Model and Borderlands 2 🙂

    So we’ve got the Vita Slim with Borderlands 2 AND God of War Collection coming on the same day. Way to spread things out.Or maybe those people who picked up the new Vita bundle will pick up a copy of GoW as well.

    At this late stage i would have prefered the vita-tv instead.
