Rumors are spreading from a post on Games Pundit that the PSP 2 (known as “NGP” or Next Generation Portable) will be officially known as the “PS Vita”, which is the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard. I said the same thing when they started calling it NGP, but that’s way cooler than PS Vita. Sure, Vita is the Italian word for Life, but that doesn’t change the fact that it sounds really dumb.
I feel like they’re trying to sell me a bread product with a hollow pocket, possibly stuffed with tasty things. With Sony’s E3 Conference on June 6th, we should officially know what they’re calling this thing. Are they going to be sensible and just call it the PSP 2, or are they convinced that the Wii was successful because of it’s stupid name?
