Surprisingly absolutely nobody and their nan, Sony has officially revealed the Next Generation Portable will be called the PlayStation Vita at their E3 press conference.
On top of that, Sony revealed that the new platform will have cross-game voice chat from launch (yup, still no news for the PS3). They also disclosed that the “Near” location application will support local ad-hoc multiplayer. It seems that the connectivity functions are going to be a big selling point for the handheld marvel.
So yeah, we can all stop talking about the NGP now.
Update: We’re hearing, from the stage, a retail price of $249 for the WiFi only version and $299 for the 3G version. Roughly analogous to the 3DS price then. That’ll do, Sony, that’ll do.
