E3 2011: Sony NGP now called PSVITA, coming Fall 2011!
Edit: Rather than mess things up here with two completely different consoles. We have a new PSV Hacks (psvhacks.com) website. At the moment you’ll find the latest PSV news when the hacks and homebrew arrive you’ll know where to find it. More on this soon…
We knew the NGP name was a codename, but Sony just announced the PSP2 aka NGP is now called the PlayStation Vita or PSVita for short. Bad name? We think so. PSP Go 2 or PSPII or PSP2 would have been nice, but hey were not Sony. Its very similar to the NGP prototype we saw earlier. Only changes I see is the new slots on the bottom of the unit where the game card will go and next to that the users own memory card for saves and user data.
PSVITA will launch this year (Fall) with two models the Wifi model for $249 and the 3G+Wifi model on AT&T for $299. The price is about right and good on Sony for keeping the price down. Launch titles included: Uncharted, Golden Abyss, Street Fighter X Tekken, LittleBigPlanet, Modnation Racers, CritterCrunch, Ruin, WipeOut 2042, Stardust HD and Hot Shots Golf. More to come, but its a huge line up and impressive to say the least.
