The possible official name of the NGP could have just been leaked. What do you think?
There has just been an update to the article adding more evidence as another post has been found on the Internet with related images.
Sounds really close to Vista doesn't it?
Hahaha it almost sounds like the swedish word for pussy "fitta". Hahahah awesome name.
That's stupid. Call it PSP2.
Yeah, sounds horrible, but I'm sure it would be known as the "PSV" for short. PSV isn't that bad.
I think it will grow on me, it does sort of flow when you say "PS VITA", like its 1 word.
PSP2 sounds better.
PSP v.2.0 wold've worked for me. Or PSP v.4.0 if you want to avoid confusion with the PSP 3000.
I know I'll call it the PSP2 regardless of what they name it.
Or the actual Swedish word "vita" plural of "white"...
Well it is the same as the romanian word for beef
Maybe they just came up with a worse name than NGP, so they can go back to NGP and people won't complain about it not being called PSP2, because "at least they didn't call it the Vita." Horrible name though IMO. It doesn't sound like a game system, let alone a cool and powerful one. It sounds more like a Chinese ripoff of Vista or something.
no kidding. You can quote me on this.
The name sounded feminine before I read your comment. Now I can't get "pussy" out of my head! :-)
@Azurite OK, i'm guilty. For being naughtier than you! Damnit! Hahahaha.
PS3Go is better
I wonder if its just because they want to have playstation in the name, but don't want to call it psp2 because it could be confused with psp2000, 3000, and go. They probably just want to start with a fresh name behind playstation other than portable, but still, I think they should have used another name, but I guess it does set it apart from playstation portable, which is what they probably want
NGP sounds better
Problem with "NGP" is that there's no "Playstation" trademark in it. And "PSNGP" does not sounds so good, neither is "Playstation NGP". As a hardware being developed, produced, and released by SCE, it will needs and have a "Playstation" brand.
The other problem with NGP is that it can't remain the next generation portable forever. What's the next one going to be called? The generation after that portable? But I agree that NGP has a better flow to it.
I hope that is not the name. Doesn't even sound right.
PSV.... does not sound that bad. You know what everyone will be saying games for the PSV in about 3 weeks tops. The acronym works.
It could be playstation 5 Ps1 Ps2 Psp Ps3 Psv
They should just call it PSP2...it makes more sense.. E.G, PS1,PS2 now PS3.
Reminds me of vitamin and it sounds like a really stuck up product with that name. Hold on, I'm just goin to grab my Vita....
It doesn't sound like a gamer type of word. I think of "Vita" as a product and I think of bottled water. Vita as a name for a phone could work- many people are inseparable from their phones. Pretty soon all of our IDs, passports, credit cards will be stored on our phones. Not exactly a future I want- stay away Google Wallet.
Wait, is it pronounced (veeta) or (viyta)?
It will be called PSP2(playstation portable 2) i'd bet money on it :)
I'm just gonna call it Vegeta
does that mean ? the price is going to be OVER 9000 !!!!! ???
^ not to mention full of BAD ASSERY!
When I read the word, vita, I immediately thought of velveeta cheese.
Immediately thought of Vista also. I am fine with the name, but it's not good to bring up memories of Vista which failed in the public's eyes.
I suppose that could be possible but Sony ain't no Toyota with the naming of their core products. I still think PSP2 is the most likely candidate name. Vita is not the most striking name if you ask me.
I think you're being too kind, Vita sucks as a name for this product.
Not a bad name but I'd rather wait for Sony's official announcement. I personally think NGP is a good name..
Weren't there some old reports that GI reported the PSP2 codename was "Veta"...... http://n4g.com/news/667466/... But that was way back when the specs went all overkill and stuff. I still think they should name it the PSP2.
dang, "Veta" sounds cooler. vita, fita, fifa, fetta cheese? The new fetta cheese portable from sony releases today, as all the gamers eat that cheese up. Hold on lisa, let me get some of these cheese, Im sorry I know we're reporting live but this is just too good!
Dude that joke was just too cheesy
trey 4 life.
i like it , i dont like psp2 at all , i even prefer NGP over PSP 2 , or PSP Touch but in their Japan keynote i think i saw sony showcasing Play life at some point , anyways lets see what they say at E3
NGP sounds right hey, PSP2 just doesn't roll off the tongue as well.
NGP sounds right indeed , PSP 2 for some reason i dont like , too predictable , anyways its sony and they dont name their products that crazy, i think something different than psp2 could be a good thing for them , i dont know its just my thinking , lets see what they say about official name , perhaps some of you dont like Vita at all but i didnt like NGP either and now im really used to it
NGP has really grown on me.. I'm kind of endeared to it now.. Anything else would unnaceptable unless it was a psp esque name...
I felt the same about Natal.
I think PlayStation Vita sounds abit strange. I mean you're talking about a PSV? A simple PSP2, would be a clear message. Also if the source was real, wouldn't they go to a more reputable site rather than an unknown one?
The source approached someone he knew who happened to know me and so put it on the website. The source didn't go searching for websites to give this news to.
Sounds strange but I will get used to it so its w.e lol.
ermmm no. I actually like the name NGP now that I've got used to it. PSP2 or NGP is fine. Vita doesn't sound like a gaming device at all.
I don't like it but it isn't up to me so will just have to wait and find out.
PSP Quadro or Quadra would be an awesome name.
Quadro o Quadra meaning ?
For its quad core cpu and gpu. The ro or ra at the end of quad is there just to make it sound awesomer.
am i missing something? why not just call it PSP2?
Simple...the stigma the industry has attached to the PSP needed to be abandoned. Sure, in form it still looks like a PSP. Call it a PSP, however, and people who had a negative experience with the original will likely be hesitant to invest in the product. If the rumored name, Vita, is true...well, I think it's a clever way to reintroduce a new strategy by Sony. Only time will tell and E3 will certainly make everything clear, but I'm quite happy they aren't considering calling it the PSP2.
Maybe because they don't want the ngp to share the same fate as the psp. about the hacking and lack of support. etc.... They want to reach a bigger install base than before and therefore need a new and refreshing name. This is just my opinion.
sounds like playstation vitamins eh? weird name just stick with ngp or psp2
Confused.com will be getting a lot hits once this thing comes out.
Doesnt sound hardcore at all.
Haha I bet that they let rumours out to see how the community reacts, so that they can change it before E3 if people really hate it
That would never happen. If a name has been branded at this phase in the game, it wouldn't be changed because a hoard of people don't like it...the branding would be done, the signage for the booth...done (considering E3 setup is happening right now through next Sunday).
i dunno it be cool it it was but then again it dosn't sound like something sony would do
I tried to repeat myself "Sony Vita" four or five times and it was not bad to me. I don' t like Psp2, I like Veta more.
You see I don't care what they ended up calling it as long as it gets good games and cool features I'll be there from day one.
LOL...In my country 'Vita' means stupid cow :))
I'd like to suggest 'P2P'. What do you guys think.
Play 2 Portable? Nah... I disapprove
