Sounds really close to Vista doesn't it?

aCasualGamer2275d ago

Hahaha it almost sounds like the swedish word for pussy "fitta".

Hahahah awesome name.

TheLastGuardian2275d ago

That's stupid.

Call it PSP2.

DarkTower8052275d ago

Yeah, sounds horrible, but I'm sure it would be known as the "PSV" for short. PSV isn't that bad.

WhittO2275d ago

I think it will grow on me, it does sort of flow when you say "PS VITA", like its 1 word.

Lifendz2275d ago

PSP v.2.0 wold've worked for me. Or PSP v.4.0 if you want to avoid confusion with the PSP 3000.

f7897902275d ago

I know I'll call it the PSP2 regardless of what they name it.

Azurite2275d ago (Edited 2275d ago )

Or the actual Swedish word "vita" plural of "white"...

turgore2275d ago

Well it is the same as the romanian word for beef

EeJLP-2275d ago

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.

miyamoto2275d ago

no kidding. You can quote me on this.

dragunrising2274d ago (Edited 2274d ago )

The name sounded feminine before I read your comment. Now I can't get "pussy" out of my head! :-)

aCasualGamer2274d ago


OK, i'm guilty. For being naughtier than you! Damnit!


NiKK_4192274d ago

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

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.

Tommykrem2274d ago

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.

fluffydelusions2275d ago

I hope that is not the name. Doesn't even sound right.

pain777pas2275d ago

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.

leonlion2275d ago

It could be playstation 5



They should just call it makes more sense.. E.G, PS1,PS2 now PS3.

gamingdroid2275d ago

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....

dragunrising2274d ago

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.

Rumor2275d ago

Wait, is it pronounced (veeta) or (viyta)?

xAlmostPro2275d ago

It will be called PSP2(playstation portable 2) i'd bet money on it :)

DrRichtofen2275d ago

I'm just gonna call it Vegeta

captain-obvious2275d ago

does that mean ?
the price is going to be OVER 9000 !!!!! ???

DrRichtofen2275d ago (Edited 2275d ago )

^ not to mention full of BAD ASSERY!

Giant_Chibi2275d ago

When I read the word, vita, I immediately thought of velveeta cheese.

The Great Melon2275d ago (Edited 2275d ago )

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.
