Following the info that Games Pundit provided, Tech Corner decided to do some research and something interesting was uncovered.
WTH? just saw the Picture BTW. this is pretty much all but confirmed then?
"Vita" Really? Worst name ever.
It could be worse......and it could be better...much better
You'll get used to it. Like Wii, like Kinect. Although I do miss the days when we had "Jaguar", "Odyssey", "Lynx" etc.
If they do call it "vita" i will never call it by that name. I would probably stick with NGP or say psp2.
Everyone said iPad was worst name ever, I agreed at the time, doesn't seem so stupid now really, people have got over it lol I actually think this name is ok, they prob could've picked better though haha. TBH there are alot of things out there with crap names but then after a while, you hear it enough, it becomes normal.
whats in a name really? will it preform any different?...No, okay then shut up about the name already. i swear men are becoming more feminine about stupid shi...
I really don't like that name. Vita just doesn't sound right......it actually kind of pisses me off for some reason.
Oh boy... Sony should just name it PSP2... and be done with it. PS1 PS2 PSP PS3 ... most logical would be... PSP2 If it's PSVita... it's a shitty name.
PS Go wasn't a bad name. They might as well have gone with PSP2 though, it's not exactly original but it keeps the brand familiarity.
They should remove the PS in the logo.. IT SUCKS!! at least leave it just VITA..
I agree. "PSVITA" spelled out doesn't look good. And they already have a PS button on the thing.
Ya'll cant wait 9 days for Sony's conference to get the final word? And I don't mind it if this rumor is true...I mean, if it's completely different than the PSP (Which it pretty much is) that takes care of PSP2. Vita is short, somewhat catchy. I just hope it somehow ties into the system in some way, and not just a weird name
Why dont they just fuckin call it the PSP2? lol... Its kinda what they do with their consoles. I guess handhelds are an exception. Vita is meh

The link is fixed. You no longer have to log in to continue. Sorry about that, my mistake.
the logo is really slick. I think it looks really cool.
Are you REALLY serious? I hope you're REALLY kidding.
You would pop up here and share your opinion that no one really cares about Max. Stick to the 360 article huh?
i like it too, something diffrent, they may still change the name, or this could be old pics sent out to pubs and devs, you just dont know, yet.
I love it PSV / Vita 3g ftw! you don't have to use the whole moniker just PSV or Vita by itself. Vita sounds cool by itself as does the 3g addition.:-) E3 will be epic... Sony somehow just can't keep leaks from happening. next it'll be all the games flying out of E3 before it even happens X_X just like the go and the last guardian. and the move.
Besides, it's just a name. Are you guys seriously going to let the name be deal breaker for you ? but then again, this could be fake. Remember when we got the leaked images of the PSP2 right before the PS meeting ? http://i52.tinypic.com/syqo... This could all still be very fake. Waiting for E3 for proper confirmation is the way to go.
Looks like someone had some spare time with the photoshop
F*ck, they did it again!
LMAO, I wouldn't be embarrassed to play a 3DS on a plane but I don't think I would be whipping out a "Vita" LMAO.
wow for a guy that has a kid (yeah i saw the comment you left on the Kinectimals article) you sure act like a fucking 15 year old troll, grow up bro.
Is there a law that forbids married people from joking around from time to time? NO! there isn't so stop being butt hurt.
You Sony fanboys are the worst. It's okay as long as the jokes not on Sony huh? I was joking kiddo, but honestly it's the stupidest fucking name I've ever heard of.
should be on xbox, with Kinect support. Then it would be sick! ...right Nomad?
@Raven_Nomad lol you go around trolling on every PS3 article bro that you already label your self as a troll so it's kind of hard to tell if your joking around or just being a idiot troll. but whatever helps you sleep at night i guess. yeah i maybe a fanboy but at least i'm not going around trolling on the 360 or it's games.
Vista refers to something grand in scale like a landscape. You can't just go around changing 'Vita' into 'Vista' just because they sound the same. Having that kind of mentality is pretty stupid.
but then again there are a lot of stupid people in the world. I'm not referring to jack who but people that are digital clueless...like most moms.
I'll get used to the name (hey it's not as bad as Wii, and we all got used to that). I do like the fact that they are changing. I do like the fact that Nintendo change's their console name all the time (or most of the time). I'll welcome my Vita overlord. EDIT: Hopefully they don't name their next console "Playstation 4", give me "Playstation ____"
yes i like that too , i found psp2 to be too predictable , PS Vita sounds refreshing to me , anyways i didnt like NGP at the beginning and now i dont mind if sony end up calling it like that , if they end up calling psp2 its gonna be good too , tbh i dont really care about the name i just want to have it on my hands and play some kick ass games on the go
Yep, I agree. I used to hate Wii (LOVED revolution) but I got used to it, I used to hate Kinect and got used to it, same with project natal, NGP, etc. Like you said, it actually feel refreshing, like it really is a new console. I don't care what they call it, as long as it's not PSP2. I do love the fact that they actually took the name out of latin language, and as a spanish speaker (and italian as second language), it actually sounds pretty cool (spanish= vida, italian/latin=vita) Though english speakers should realize it's not said as "Vayta", it's like "Veeta" (unless sony doesn't use the italian/latin way to say it)
Hey guys check the second ball on top, isn't that sly? is sly4 for NGP? boy oh boy this is gonna rock if true
Yep, zoomed in on it. Thats definitely Sly! I had never played a Sly game before today, just picked up the Sly collection and I'm loving it. I'd pick up Sly for NGP (or should I say Vita)
Yea I should've commented about the name, it isn't really bad it just needs to be used to it, and I really hope there will be a sly4 game for it.
call it Grandma nancy's shack for all I care, I just WANT THAT BEAUTIFUL PIECE OF HW!
LMAO , u made me laugh man , me too i just wanna play the games , they can call it whatever they want i dont really care
Word, I could care less.
This is obviously the PSPs successor so why the hell would it be named anything but the PSP2. If i hear people saying "Vita" I'll most likely mistaken it to be Windows Vista and call it shit without hesitation otherwise I'll just think that Sony got hit in the head or something... We'll just have to wait and see.
DS was clearly the successor to the Game Boy, so why did they call it DS? Wii to gamecube, gamecube to N64, etc.
I totally agree with you on that part but this is Sony were talking about. In the end a rumor is only going to be a rumor after all.
that's true, e3 needs to happen, now!!
I believe vita is Latin (and Italian) for life, so technically, you could say it might be called the 'Playstation Life'.
I can see it now, firmware 2.92 kills Life. Killzone on Life sucks Sales of Life in NA dead...
Be gone troll!
Max, I'll follow your sarcasm (although some people don't see it) Playstation Life... in life support!
They should call it "Life" in North America and "Vita" in Europe. All I can think of when I hear the name "Vita" are the Vita Chambers in Bioshock.
That's interesting dood b+. If they do what one could with such a powerful handheld and expend it to include social app (which we know it will) plus organizer apps, that will further solidify my purchase. very excited.
Thanks, would I get an A if I told you that it's also: A historical neighborhood in Kiev, Ukraine A food company in Chicago, Illinois An ethnographic study by João Biehl titled 'Vita — Life in a Zone of Social Abandonment' A brand name of beverages in Hong Kong Lol Wikipedia is unreliably helpful :P
Another explanation I as a Greek can give about the name is that B is the second letter in the Greek Alphabet and the pronunciation is VITA or Βήτα in the Greek so maybe they did it because they thought it's better than just say 2 I don't know I am just saying :)
Most likely a prototype name, alot of company's do that.
The prototype name is NGP.
Yeah but nothing has been said from Sony that this is even its name. It sounds to close to Vista.
So why the, presumably, marketing materials with logo and such?
Did you even bother to read the article? Up until now the pictures had NO branding whatsoever. Now they do, PSVita! I'd say that's a confirmation and a half, not a prototype name (which would actually be called a codename).
No matter the meaning, the name sucks.
Haha can you imagine people saying "Dude get a Vita" "GET A LIFE"
I chuckled. You win this topic!
Playstation Portable=PSP Playstation VIta=PSV i kinda like the sound of PSV, but feeling a bit meh about Playstation Vita or PS Vita. cant complain though, anything with a Playstation in its name sounds pretty much cool :D
called it psv is better than called it psvita
Yeah, Vita sounds dumb now, but I thought "Play Station" sounded awful when PS1 came out.
I agree,I remember people laughing at that name 15 years ago...just like the Wii 5 years ago.
