There are now multiple sources reporting that all the evidence is pointing to Sony formally naming the now known Next Generation Portable (NGP), the PlayStation Vita. Recent images of the a device seem to clearly show the name also. Now more recently it appears as if even more evidence has surfaced supporting the name.
Check out vita.scedev.net , its a domain that shows Sony’s current development platforms, as well as information regarding Sony Computer Entertainment. The fact that “vita” is actually a valid subdomain seems to give more credence to the rumors. The site itself is definitely legit and sports the following disclaimer:
The Developer Network sites are owned and managed by Sony Computer Entertainment Inc and its affiliates.
For our two cents, we don’t think Vita will be the name, it is just well… stupid. I think they might just be trying to throw us off the trail a bit and get us looking in the wrong direction before E3. One thing is for sure though, come next week at E3, lots of our questions will be answered during Sony’s June 6th E3 Press Conference.
