Confirmed, then.

doubt people will call it the Vita, sounds weird. its not a bad name but i'll probably call it the PSV.
Redrum059  +   1156d ago
i agree with crXss
i cant hear myself calling a psdevice a vita. it doesnt roll of the tongue naturally
LOGICWINS  +   1156d ago
The name sucks. PERIOD.

For me, the logo sucks more. They need to get rid of that font. Back in the PS2 days was fine, but they have used it on the PSP, PS3 and now Vita.

They really need to hire a new logo designer, but we all know they won't :(

Is it V-tuh, or V-ie-tuh? Or maybe v-a-ta?
How do you pronounce it?

By the way, roll the "Vita is doomed with such a silly name!"
Wii would like to have a good laugh.

Both sites source NeoGaf.
Don't try to credit that crappy site with this find.

WooHooAlex  +   1156d ago

Kotaku posted this hours ago...
I'm guessing thats where all this info came from. http://kotaku.com/5807509/w...

Well the info source was a user on neogaf who got the info in the first place. Really all credit goes to him, username (GoFreak).

Then it's confirmed, why would Sony put PS Vita all across the source coding if that wasn't the planed name. It makes sense (V) 5th PlayStation console.
IRetrouk  +   1157d ago
super sayian 5!!!! omg omg omg omg. i bow before you.
cant wait for the psv, gonna be good.
IRetrouk  +   1156d ago
sorry it super sayian 4.
user9422077  +   1157d ago
Did anyone think otherwise?

I mean, it's already confirmed via images, Sony's dev site...
Raendom  +   1157d ago
Already got used to it. Can't wait for the Vita.
nevin1  +   1156d ago

Should they save that for PS5 as the (V)5th Home console?
blumatt  +   1156d ago
I don't care what they call it (though I'd prefer PSP2). All I care about is the games and features of the handheld, and I hope it is priced at $299.99 or lower. If it's higher than that, I'll have to wait until a price drop.

Speaking of price drops, I wouldn't be surprised to see the PS3 drop to $250 or even $200.
Valvatorez  +   1156d ago
I think they should call it The Crippler,cause once you see it in action your not getting up from that!
Kon  +   1156d ago
They should call It PSPWNT
CrzyFooL  +   1156d ago
Valvatorez  +   1156d ago
I really wouldn't care if they called it The PSFuzzy chicken ass with a side of panda testicles-I'm still gonna buy it!
littlebigmarcpsps3  +   1156d ago
dont fucking care about the name. they can call it PSS as PLAYSTATION SHIT.
i want it this summer..not next year or later this year
nihonlight  +   1156d ago
"Vita" can mean "life". Like vita-lity, or vita-min.
I'm sure that what they are aiming for. ^_^

Every year sony gets stuff leaked before E3 and another LOL because that is the official name. NGP sounded so much better but it really would be NGP after that gen is over since it wont be so "next gen".

Maybe they could call it one of these

PSP: Playstation pwns

PSP2: Playstation portable 2

PSPN: playstation portable pwns the Big N

SPSP:Super playstation portable


PSPE: playstation portable elite

Vita is the modern greek word for the ancient greek word
beta. This might just be the name for the beta (vita) testing units.

Everyone is assuming it's Vita but it would be funny if Sony called it a different name at E3.
SlyFoxC  +   1156d ago
lol i have been saying this also....im not holding my breath on the whole PSVita thing...even though i like it. i mean look at it as the PSV...i think that sounds good!

or if you want to be like me lol.... PSVegeta!

OVER 9000!
PSWe60  +   1156d ago
what a shitty name.

I really hope that's not the final name. I'd rather call it the "Sony 2nd generation PlayStation Hand held, but if you consider the PSP go it's own generation then it's really the 3rd generation hand held, hand held".

Nuh-uh man, nuh-uh.
