Following in the footsteps of a colorful PSP lineup, Sony has announced a white PlayStation Vita set to be released in Japan on June 28.

The white Vita (PCH-1100 AB02) will sell at the same price as the original black base model, contains identical innards, and comes in Wi-Fi-only or 3G/Wi-Fi configurations.

Gamers in the U.S. craving the "crystal white" Vita must remain patient, as sometimes these alternatively colored Sony products reside in Japan for a little while and eventually roll out elsewhere. Sony may possibly announce further details about the white Vita during the E3 gaming expo in Los Angeles on June 5-7.

In related news, we also spotted a limited-edition white Vita with a suggestive image of popular Japanese video game character (and singer) Hatsune Miku coincidentally placed on the rear touchpad. The exotic Hatsune Vita (with included 4GB memory card and several augmented reality cards) costs 10,000 yen ($125) more than the normal version, and debuts on August 30 in Japan alongside the release of the rhythm game "Next Hatsune Miku Project Diva."
