Sounds really close to Vista doesn't it?

aCasualGamer2487d ago

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

Hahahah awesome name.

TheLastGuardian2487d ago

That's stupid.

Call it PSP2.

DarkTower8052487d ago

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

WhittO2487d ago

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

Lifendz2487d 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.

f7897902487d ago

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

Azurite2487d ago (Edited 2487d ago )

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

turgore2487d ago

Well it is the same as the romanian word for beef

EeJLP-2487d 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.

miyamoto2486d ago

no kidding. You can quote me on this.

dragunrising2486d ago (Edited 2486d ago )

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

aCasualGamer2486d ago


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


NiKK_4192486d 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.

Tommykrem2486d 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.

fluffydelusions2487d ago

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

pain777pas2487d 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.

leonlion2487d ago

It could be playstation 5



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

gamingdroid2487d 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....

dragunrising2486d 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.

Rumor2487d ago

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

xAlmostPro2487d ago

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

DrRichtofen2487d ago

I'm just gonna call it Vegeta

captain-obvious2487d ago

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

DrRichtofen2487d ago (Edited 2487d ago )

^ not to mention full of BAD ASSERY!

Giant_Chibi2487d ago

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

The Great Melon2487d ago (Edited 2487d 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.

sinncross2487d ago

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.

kneon2487d ago

I think you're being too kind, Vita sucks as a name for this product.

MaximusPrime2487d ago

Not a bad name but I'd rather wait for Sony's official announcement. I personally think NGP is a good name..

pedrami912487d ago (Edited 2487d ago )

Weren't there some old reports that GI reported the PSP2 codename was "Veta"......

But that was way back when the specs went all overkill and stuff.

I still think they should name it the PSP2.

subtenko2487d ago

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!

remanutd552487d ago

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

Tachyon_Nova2487d ago

NGP sounds right hey, PSP2 just doesn't roll off the tongue as well.

remanutd552487d ago

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

moparful992487d ago

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...

SixShotCop2487d ago

I felt the same about Natal.
