Slimmer PS Vita with LCD screen arriving in North America sometime this spring

The slimmer, LCD-equipped PlayStation Vita first announced for Japan last year is coming to North America this spring bundled with Borderlands 2, Sony announced today.

News of the new Vita’s inevitable North American release comes by way of John Koller, vice president of marketing for Sony Computer Entertainment America, during a PlayStation event in Santa Monica today (also via Twitter). According to Koller, the Vita version of Borderlands 2 will have four-player co-op and cross-platform save compatibility with the PS3 version.

The PCH-2000 Vita model was first unveiled in Japan last September, just before Tokyo Game Show. The new model swaps out the original Vita’s OLED screen for a less power-hungry LCD one, drops 20 percent of its thickness and 15 percent of its weight, and adds an extra hour of battery life.

The new Vita hit European just last week, priced at £180 (roughly $299 in American dollars). Sony has yet to disclose pricing for the North American release.
