    Seems like people on NeoGAF found (or someone else found) evidence that the NGP will be called Vita by looking through the source of the Sony E3 site. It is now removed but was apparently there earlier.

    Too bad the same trick doesn't work for Nintendo.

    It isn't really proof. They could just be doing that to hide the real name. Everybody believes it's Vita, so why not roll with it until you're ready?

    Do you think they would go through that much trouble?

    I mean if it is the name, they could just change it in the last second or even days before release.

    What trouble? To write PS Vita in the source code?

    Trouble of tricking people with a name when they have bigger things to do.

    Like prepare for E3 or like fixing security. [​IMG]

    Step one: everybody thinks it's PS vita.
    Step two: write "PS Vita in source code

    Done. It isn't trouble at all.

    Nice, thought it was true, this name really did sound legit! Hopefully the launch line-up is legit too, because damn, that's freaking good!

    The NGP looks like a mini home console rather than a portable to me...

    It's just very powerful and (if the launchlist is accurate) the games coming are unbelievable.
