New PlayStation Vita model hits Australia June 4

New, 4 comments

The first redesign to the PlayStation Vita wi-fi model, the PCH-2000 series, will hit Australia with a 1GB internal memory June 4 for AU$269.95, Sony Computer Entertainment Australia announced today.

The design of the PS Vita PCH-2000 series is 20 percent slimmer and 15 percent lighter than the existing PS Vita PCH-1000 models. It also features a high-definition five-inch LCD screen, four to six hours of gameplay and replaces the proprietary charging cable with a micro USB cable. The new systems will gradually replace the original models at retail.

The PS Vita PCH-2000 series first launched in Japan last October, followed by a release in the U.K. on Feb. 7 for a suggested retail price of £180.  The Borderlands 2 PlayStation Vita bundle, featuring the new slimmer model and the standalone Vita version of Borderlands 2, launched in the U.S. on May 6 for $199.99.
