Last summer Sony showed off the newer slimmer PS Vita in Japan however no word if this version would ever make it to the US until now. Yesterday Sony announced that it would be coming to the US this spring. They didn't give us an exact date but did say that a Borderlands 2 bundle would be available for $199. The slim model is 15 percent lighter and 20 percent slimmer. I didn't see any comment if they would be coming out in bright colors like in Japan, I guess we will have to wait and see.
