Sony NGP to be named 'PS Vita'? The latest rumor, and "confirmed" by a couple of photos, is that Sony will name their upcoming NGP handheld "PlayStation Vita."
Vita is the Latin term for "Life," which could absolutely be a reasonable name for the system.

Additionally, has the same technical contact as, Sony.

Whether the rumor is true or not, we will know the official name of the system at Sony's E3 keynote on June 6th.

For controls, the updated handheld adds dual micro-analog sticks, giving gamers a feature they begged for on the original PSP.

The device has a massive 5-inch multi-touch OLED screen with 960×544 resolution, a multi-touch panel on the back and will run on a quad-core ARM cortex processor.

Sony has added tilt-sensitive SIXAXIS controls, standard and front-side cameras, GPS, an electric compass, Wi-Fi and 3G support, and access to Android gaming.

The NGP is expected to sell for $250-$300 for the cheapest model.

"Life", I'll bet that'll be the jail sentence Sony asks for if they catch the first group or individual that hacks this thing.

And just to keep from being an old, wordy bitch, but is it me or is this device just another tablet PC of sorts? It just so happens to be put into a good looking PSP body... and be nice-ish (to me, not the NGP [put 40 layers of clear coat on a dog turd it's still a POS]. I lost contact with the whole PSP endeavor since the 3000 model being a devil to do anything with.
