NewsNewsbrief: Sony has picked a date to launch its previously announced $200 Borderlands 2 Vita bundle in North America: May 6, according a post published on the PlayStation Blog today. The product is noteworthy because it will include the Wi-Fi edition of Sony's new, redesigned PlayStation Vita hardware -- the PCH-2000 series. The new Vita, which is thinner, lighter and more power-efficient than the original -- due in part to Sony's decision to replace the high-quality OLED screen with an LCD -- was announced last year in Japan and recently launched in Europe. The Vita version of Borderlands 2, which was announced at Sony's E3 press conference last year, will be included with the bundle and thus playable a week before its official May 13 launch. The bundle also comes with a proprietary 8GB Vita memory card.
