    Sony has announced a "Crystal White" PS Vita console for release in Japan next month. The system will be launched on June 28th at the regular price of ¥24,980 and ¥29,980 for the Wi-Fi and 3G models, and Sony will also release white accessories like an earbud headset and a couple of cases. It's not the only white Vita in the pipeline, though — August 30th will see the release of a Hatsune Miku special edition bundle to tie in with the release of the next Project Diva game. The previous PSP entries sold over a million copies in Japan and sparked the Vocaloid character's phenomenal popularity.

    The limited edition Miku Vita will cost ¥10,000 (about $125) more than a regular system, but you do get a 4GB memory card included in the package along with a copy of the new game, a specially-designed screen protector, and AR cards. No word on a worldwide release for either of these systems — we'd expect the regular white edition to make its way elsewhere at some point, but don't hold your breath for Hatsune Miku.
