Gaming blog Ripten is today adding fuel to the fire previously known as NGP by coming out and saying they’ve been told independently that the next PSP is indeed dubbed Vita. Trusted source, too, naturally.
The reasons for Sony dropping the PSP moniker are clear enough – the brand needs a refresh and some people are still feeling burnt by the PSPgo – and whilst Vita sounded a bit odd this morning it’s starting to click a bit now.
What is new is that the Uncharted game is apparently being subtitled Golden Abyss – presumably not based on the level from Overlord – mysterious enough to fit in with the previous Uncharted titles.
Worth mentioning that, at least at this stage, Sony are still calling the NGP, er, NGP as far as we know, but there might well have been a recent mini pre-E3 gathering where certain press got access to the new machine…
One thing’s for sure, E3 is going to be fun this year.
