What's being offered?

Although the exact date of the release was not revealed, coming this Spring gamers are getting an upgrade. The post went on to say that the "new PS Vita Wi-Fi model (PCH-2000 series) will be available via the Borderlands 2 Limited Edition PlayStation Vita Bundle."

What's being changed?

The original version is 15 percent heavier and thicker than this anticipated version of the console that has held its own with other consoles on the market like the Nintendo 3DS. The upgrade is obviously welcomed by the players who have waited for it since early 2012. 

The representatives also made mention that the Borderlands 2 bundle will come with an 8GB memory card so you don't have to worry about space. The battery life is also expected to "increase to 4-6 hours of gameplay, up from 3-5 hours in the current model, and about 7 hours of video play, up from 5 hours from the current model. Extra juice for those long game sessions," the post reads. 

Remastered to work with Vita's touch screen features Borderlands 2 incorporates all the new bells and whistles of the system, so even if you have played the game it will still be worth the money to get both! Are you upgrading your old system? What features are you most excited for?
