    Why not PlayStation Portable 2? Or Sony Portable 2?

    Why on Earth did they choose an obscure name like Vita, when their consoles follow a tradition format or 1, 2, 3?

    Its gross.

    I'm rarely ever satisfied with the way these companies name their machines. I think they do this just to piss some people off. They know people have been using the term "PSP2" to anticipate the 2nd PSP, and yet they choose to go against what the majority has already been calling it.

    Why not PSP2?

    3DS - Sucky name.
    PSVita - Sucky name.
    Wii U - Horrible name.

    If the next PS is called PSZ and the next XBOX is calleld XBOX 1280, I will strangle someone.

    They want to change the trend. and you can't do anything. it's their product. no whining can make them change the name if the want that name.

    And? You're just pointing out the obvious. Its not like I'm so ignorant that I think my thoughts change anything. There can be a petition with 50k signatures ording Sony to fix it and it wont do anything.

    I'm just sharing my disgust.

    Reading the OP then looking at your avatar... [​IMG]
    I couldn't agree more, but hey who cares about a name as terrible as Vita when there's something that sounds like "We yoo!" *pukes*
    Who cares about the name though, let's wish for an amazing future in gaming.

    i'm just saying, don't whine too much... whining won't do you any good.

    in our current society, those at the top control what happens. we at the bottom can only follow. if you want change, try to do it yourself, but it won't be easy.

    deal with it.

    I love the name. Vita means Life, and it suits their intended goals with the system. But to me, it feels like it suits the entire handheld concept. Having the ability to game, anytime, anywhere, to game on the bus, or in your house, it's designed to be playable at any moment in your Life, it's awesome.

    I just call it Pee Ess Vee. PSV.

    I'd say Nintendo's WEE YOU sounds worse than a PEE ESS VEE.

    Whining? I am not whining! I am complaining. Do you want to hear whining?

    This is whining: Ohhhh this harness is too tight! Its going to chafe! Can't you loosen it?! Ohhh it hurts! And its so rusty! Why didn't you clean it first?! Its going to leave a stain! and the wagon is getting heavy! Why do I have to pull it?!

    I like the name. And I think it's clear that the WiiU would have been the Yuu if Bob's Game didn't havet that.

    Vita = Beta = 2
    PSVita = PSP2

    That's my guess. I don't care how it sounds, as long as it's good.
