The redesigned, slimmer version of the PS Vita is coming to North America. Already available in both Japan and the UK, the latest version of the handheld sports a smaller body and swaps out the original's OLED screen for an LCD display — it's 20 percent thinner and features slightly improved battery life. The North American version will be released as part of a bundle alongside sci-fi shooter Borderlands 2 for $199.99. It also comes with an 8 GB memory card, as well as six different DLC packs for the game. No specific release date has been announced just yet, but the new handheld is expected to launch in the spring and should be a great way to get in on the Vita's steadily growing library of fantastic indie games.
