Sony has made a few big announcements for the PS Vita today, confirming the slim model for US release and dating two of its upcoming games.

The new PS Vita is due to arrive in the US this spring. It’s 20 percent thinner and 15 percent lighter than the original version, although it doesn’t pack the OLED screen. Instead, an LCD display saves battery life but reduces the screen’s vibrancy.

Better yet, the system will be available via the Borderlands 2 bundle. The port of the first-person shooter will include six DLC story packs and an 8GB memory card will also be inside.

Next up is the important bit – games. Sony has confirmed that The Sly Trilogy, consisting of the three original PS2 games, will be available on April 16th in Europe and May 27th in the US. Following that, the God of War Collection, including the first two games, will come on May 8th for EU and May 6th for US. It will apparently boast touchscreen support.

So there’s a mini-Vita update for us all. Will it be enough to keep the system going in 2014?
