Sony makes PS Vita next generation for PSP2

One of the best times of the year for gamers is upon us with E3 2011 which is already competing for you to watch it with Apple’s WWDC conference. We have been regularly reporting on different consoles and things that will be showcased including the new Nintendo device currently known as “Project Café.”

Another device that has certainly been turning heads is the new Sony handheld device that everyone in the world wants to know more about. Already we have talked about how there’s been some confusion over the name as Sony branded it the NGP (Next Generation Portable) but we heard otherwise, we heard they were going to be calling it the PS Vita although people will still know it as the PSP2.

Over at Engadget their author Vlad Savov has added a report saying that Sony has now filed for the PS Vita trademark in Europe. The Italian influence is flowing through the name as Vita means Life in their native tongue and although this is not yet confirmed by Sony it certainly looks like it will be and we will probably find out today.

When the original PSP was launched the world loved it especially when Kaz Hirai announced the games that would be launching with it. This is the point where his classic quote that is always remembered comes into play, the title of one of the games… Riiiiidge Raaacer! We’re wondering if this will be a launch game second time round with Mr.Hirai pulling out that quote from the classic bag, we are also expecting Uncharted Golden Abyss to be available on release date as it’s one of the games we have seen demoed the most.

So come on guys, be honest and tell us what name you prefer, NGP or PS Vita? Let us know in the comments section below.

    NGP I liked the sound of that but the name would die out, because in time its not exactly going to be ‘next generation’
