Rumors have been flying around that the next Sony handheld will be named the Vita as opposed to the NGP that it has been aptly named to this point. Is the Vita a better fit for the name, or should Sony stick with calling it the NGP?
IF the name is PSV/PlayStation Vita, I like it. Has a certain ring to it. It also allows Sony to begin anew with their handheld department. Anyone who bought a PSP already and sees this will already know its a PSP 2, but others will see it and be able to think its a whole new console. Sony is setting a high bar for this handhelds and the competition with this thing, and the name fits. PlayStation Life. Also, the marketing department is going to have a field day with this one. Its almost too easy.
I like the name PlayStation Vita
I thought the name sounded cool. and it sounds way better than just PSP 2
NGP, PSV... They all sound great, tough I like NGP more.
I think PlayStation Vita sounds shi*, I like PSV though... If PSV becomes the marketed name i will like, like Ps1, Ps2 and Ps3 you have Psv
If it was called the PSV, it would not sell in Europe....apart from in Eindhoven, where it would sell by the truckload!
why would it not sell in europe? im in uk and have my name down for 1, whatever its called its a day 1.
Seriously. Vita may sound odd now because the public isn't used to it yet. Remember everyone saying how stupid NGP was at first? Now it's, "NGP has a nice ring to it." Yeah, it's because you kept hearing it. Wii doesn't sound as stupid now either (it's still stupid but not as bad). Whatever they decide to name it, you'll hate it at first until you get used to it. The name quite frankly doesn't freaking matter. No system name matters anymore. They're all still branded "Nintendo" "Microsoft" and "Sony."
I don't remember people say NGP sounded stupid at all. It doesn't matter how much we say it the name is still gonna be lame. Wii is still lame, Kinect is still lame. The Name sucks. I don't see it catching on at all.
i agree, i remember when kinect was called natal. when i heard kinect i HATED IT, now i kinda like it, i dont really care what this psp type thing is. i just want it lol
i say PsPt play station portable touch lol.
Why not call it the Dual-Quad Cornucopia?
they SHOULD just call it the PSP2
That'll only continue the legacy. Sony probably isn't satisfied with the PSP this Generation. And when you're moving forward from an unfavorable position you have to be new. Besides. PSP2 is a bit wordy. It works for PS1 , PS2 , and PS3 because you're not adding another character just changing the 3rd one.
Lmao...please you'd love the name even if it was called Playstation Jackass. You'd say something about how badass and epic and in your face it is. You'd be telling us it is for only the hardcore and that if we don't like it then we are all babies.
this is the same story over and over...when NGP was announce many people were complaining on how stupid it sounded..time passed and every got used to it.. same will happen with VITA believe me.
Reminds me of Vista
Hopefully that's all people will be reminded of since Vista was a disaster.
Agree, thats the first thing I thought lol...It is too close to vista.
Actually I thought of those vitamin gum balls. NGP was a beast name, I liked it better imo
I like Veta...NPG would have been a retarded name, especially towards the end of the handheld generation.
I think it's a cool name. I think it'd just be funny saying "hey man you got the vita?".
yeah son, I got that vita right here.
LOL bub for laugh
Viva la Vita?
Oh shut the fuck up already, VITA IS GOOD, stop whining, you sound like a little bitch
Are you crying?
I like Vita, as everyone said, it'll be nicknamed PSV (Not affiliated with the football club, PSV Eidenhoven).
No one is gonna call it the PSV when you can just call it the Vita and save urself a syllable. There's no point in USING the acronym if there is a shorter way to say it. Vi-ta P-S-V/ N-G-P... c'mon
Us humans really are lazy types! But yeah, I agree. I like the name Vita anyway.
it's still shorter to type , so most sites will just use psv tabs
I like Vita much more than NGP PSV rolls off the tongue better than NGP and it sounds more interesting.
isn't confirmed yet.
Playstation Vita. Playstation Life. A PSV. You know it sounded strange at first but now it sounds kinda classy. If you say it enough times it actually kinda grows on you. Defintely better and not as corny as some of the names the other companies have been coming up with for their systems these days.
I wonder if they will bring that little black kid Marcus back? Imagine it, "Yo homies, if yer not playin da Vita yous needs ta step ya game up!"
HAHAHAHAHAHAHahahahaahahah this guy is a riot /s.
I am not amused.
You've just won the whole internet sir
lol looks like you're gonna need a name change
I really like the name "Vita". It brings to mind renewal, refreshing, life, etc... It is something that would make for great marketing too. I would love to see the commercials that they have planned for it. I know one thing. No matter what the name is, I am buying it for sure. I am putting at least $70 towards it in the beginning of July. :) I can't wait to play it.
Already put 200 towards mine. :) once we get an official price I'll pay off the rest
I kinda prefer npg. When I hear vita I think compact car.
vita is an odd odd name.
Sony's diggin' this V thing. Vaio, Bravia, and now Vita.
Let's just hope PSV isn't "special" in the sense that it's mentally handicapped like Vista. It better be fucking EPIC.
I like NGP better. Vita sounds a bit like Vista which reminds me of one of Microsofts biggest blunders. And dont mark me as trolling. Because what i said is true Microsoft did a bad job with Vista.
I definitely don't like NGP but Vita is not much better, we'll see if they do like the Move and change the name last minute..hell or if it was ever the final name to begin with. That said I could get accustomed to Vita, I mean we got used to "Wii", "Kinect" and "Move" and they are all dumb names.
Vita is definitely going to be a field day for marketing. If they actually do a good job. I like it. "PSV. Playstation Vita. The Vita. Let your Playstation Vita and PS3 communicate." It rolls off better in my opinion.
I'd prefer Playstation ÜberTron 6000.
i know why they would name it that if thats even the real name is becuz they want to make people think of something different psp2 that sounds too shallow playstation vita that would have people wondering wow i wonder what this is and mabe the next sony console wont name ps4 mabe it will name playstation revelution PLAY BEYOND
I will still call it NGP/Psp2 if that is the real name.
