It won't be official until it's unveiled on stage during Sony's E3 press conference, but bookmakers are surely cutting off bets on the NGP's final name after this trademark filing turned up overnight.

Called, yes, the PlayStation Vita, the filing was filed with the Trademarks and Designs Registration Office of the European Union on June 6, was submitted by Sony Computer Entertainment and even included the snappy logo you see above.

The listing follows on from a discovery last week that Sony had included the term "PlayStation Vita" on its E3 web site.


http://kotaku.com/5808809/this-is-probably-the-ngps-new-name-and-logo



Also, I'm sorry I just thought of this and I know it's a little silly, but it just came to mind just then.

PSV = PlayStation Vita = PlayStation Life

The letter V in Roman Numerals = 5

PSV is OFFICIALLY the 5th PlayStation home or portable console to grace this Earth (soon to grace this Earth).

1. PS
PS mini
2. PS2
PS2 Slim
PSX (PS2 & DVR Hybrid)
3. PSP
4. PS3
PSP Slim
PS3 Slim
PSP go!
5. PSV

I was going to add PocketStation and the Bravia PS2 TV (PS2 & HDTV Hybrid) in there, but meh.

So is the Vita going to double as a phone running android?

Aesthetically, I wouldn't mind replacing my old N95 with this thing. It looks cool.

PSV will remain as a portable video games console, because having phone calling features would most likely make PSV simply too expensive.
The US$ price tag on it has now is extremely competitive in my opinion.

Ugh... Sony is repeating history and using a proprietary memory card. What is wrong with SDHC or SDXC cards?

Also, why does this thread title not have "Vita" in it?

Nintendo's core franchises are the only reason the 3ds is even on my radar. Man dual analog sticks and the brilliant screen are a win for me.

Big news! A list of every upcoming PS Vita game has been leaked (including unannounced ones), and I think some people will be pretty happy. icon_smile.gif











Gotham City Imposters, Yakuza, Mortal Kombat, FFXI, King of Fighters, Kingdom Hearts, Castelvania, Contra, Mass Effect, Blazblue, Metal Gear Solid: Rising and more! Excellent line-up. icon_biggrin.gif Here's hoping that this list is the real deal!

Yeah, it's not proven at this point. An anonymous source leaked the document earlier today. Apparently, most of them are supposed to be revealed during Gamescom.

Oh my god! Monster Hunter! That's all it needs... nothing else... well except whatever Capybara Games is releasing.

That has to be the single most awesome name for a games company, I can see it now an office full of oversized rodents. icon_nn.gif

Elevator Action, that game brings back memories

I hope the Saints Row title actually gets released after the 3DS title was canned, though maybe they canned the 3DS title to start on a Vita version instead?

Potential leaked screens of Music Player and Web Browser






They look pretty legit. That browser looks heaps better than the PSP one which is total and utter trash.
