The lights are on
Borderlands 2’s PlayStation Vita release date has been revealed to be May 13, though, fans can grab it even earlier if they pick up the Borderlands 2 Limited Edition PlayStation Vita Bundle. Along with the release date announcement comes a new trailer showing off what Borderlands 2 looks like on the Vita.
The limited edition bundle is available May 6 for $199.99 and includes a slimmer and lighter PS Vita that has 1GB of internal memory built into the handheld and an 8GB Vita memory card. Additional changes to the Vita’s design include an LCD screen (instead of the OLED screen in the original Vita), increased battery life, and alterations to the back to help with comfort.
For those who have already been traveling and looting across Pandora, cross-save between the PS3 and Vita is supported. Unfortunately, cross-buy is not included, so if you bought the PS3 version you’ll have to reinvest to play on Vita.

Wow I have to get this. Got to get back into vita gaming and complete ffx and killzone.
This should boost vita sales for a while
borderlands is a good game, but it always burns me out way to fast. Like, at this point i don't want any more haha.
May 13th, that's my Birthday!
Happy to hear it comes out a week after God of War comes out on the vita!!! My vita is gonna be busy lol.
i like the new vita...
All I care about is getting the Yellow vita, is that coming to the United states, and I want to purchase it without borderlands for a cheaper price. Please some one tell me this will be sold solo for like 170$ or something. And do we get the color options?
ah! the release date! nice nice!
I was gonna get a vita so I'm just gonna wait until this comes out.
Honestly, I'm surprised it looks as good as it does, considering how large of a game it is and being squeezed into a handheld. I saw the IGN video of them playing on it and it looked pretty smooth. It still has a little time left, so they may still be able to optimize it more.
I might actually get this!
Well...being my nearly 2 year old Vita is showing its age in battery life...wonder if I can get it replaced under warranty with a Silm? -thinks about it- Most likely not. Still I love my Vita. Just shame on the small selection of games. Yet none of them are terrible...well maybe a couple (At least can say that with being a bit of a fact lol). Don't regret getting the handheld at all.
Plus...wonder if Wal-Mart would even sell it. As I've noticed lately. That anything Playstion Related is slim pickings. Yet look over at the XBox and there is at least a whole section crammed full. At least in my area noticed that.
