    According to Joystiq who are showing what seems to be leaked photos from Sony's pre-E3 show; the long awaited successor of the PSP, previously known as "NGP" (Next Generation Portable) will officially be renamed to PS Vita.

    Does this look legit to you? Do you like this name?

    Aww man, PSVita doesn't roll off the tongue like 3DS or PSP. I guess PSV would work, but that sounds like medicine. [​IMG]

    Be sure to take your PSVita daily!
    Side Affects include: nausea, heartburn and seizures
    Overdose may result in being sued by Sony and making stupid rap videos about said company.

    Doesn't seem legit...

    I prefer the names like PSP, DS, 3DS and NGP more. They sorta sound 'right'

    PSVita?!? Maybe PSV... That could be okay...

    I think this is not the real name.

    If I remember correctly, in an issue of GameInformer (or it was some magazine), the Xperia Play was codenamed Zeus and the rumored PSP2 was codenamed Veta, before it was codenamed NGP. It's a letter off but its a possibility.

    PSP Vita sounds gay, but PSV sounds cool.

    Reminds me of the workers from Starcraft...

    PS Vita sounds like a disease you get by having too much unprotected sex, and losing your credit card info.....

    "Beta (letter) aka Vita, (β), the 2nd letter of the Greek alphabet"
    "Vita (Latin and Italian for "life")"
    Both Found On Wikipedia

    A developer (EA I think) had said a few weeks ago that Sony was just sticking with NGP. But hey, things change.

    sony PS vita - fail in brand naming. thay can do worse only if the called it ps vista.
    look like they consider psp is fail (which isn`t actually, even despite of fact that ds is better. but N was longer on this market). again - sony consider that as gaming console psp fails, so they want to create ipod\3ds\coyon competitor at once. something like "looks - we have new device! it can skype, flash, facebook, hd-films, loseless music! and year, we almost forgot - it can play games sometimes.".
    btw - they should do something with that horrible stiks on early prototype. This beast simply impossible to put in pocket. it is bad that psp go design was abadoned.
