In a behind closed doors event today, Sony has confirmed that they intend to bring the slimmer, cheaper version of the PS Vita to North America later this year. Previously, Sony had only announced that the handheld-that-could would be heading to the UK.
To add to the excitement, they’ve also announced that a bundle will be made available at launch, which includes the port of Borderlands 2. Borderlands 2 was announced at Gamescom in 2013 to much fanfare, but little else has been heard about it since.
The good news doesn’t stop there, though; Sony has also provided some statistics that will boost morale for fans of the Vita. A little under half of all of the Vita’s game sales are digital and Sony has also stated that 1-in-3 Vita owners also own a PlayStation 4 console. Things are certainly looking up for the Vita!
