At E3 2011, the Sony NGP got an official name: PlayStation Vita. The new name was announced at Sony’s Press Conference yesterday by Sony Computer Entertainment CEO Kazuo Hirai. If that wasn’t enough, check out the new trailer for the Vita below, full of surprise game announcements directly from E3.
Kaz Hirai has announced that the PlayStation Vita will be available to purchase during the Christmas Season. The Vita will be available in two models Wifi and Wifi / 3G. In addition to revealing a release date, Harai also announced that retail price for the new portable console.
Just like ModNation Racers, an entirely new version of LittleBigPlanet will be heading to the PlayStation Vita. Once again, the Vita’s hardware will be used to make creating levels and playing the different levels much easier. The level toolbox has been updated and optimized for touch controls, so players can create levels with the use of their fingers.
The rumor from last week has been confirmed – the NGP will be called the PlayStation Vita. Kaz Hirai announced the new name at Sony’s E3 2011 Press Conference in Los Angeles earlier today. The PlayStation Vita will include dual analogue sticks, two cameras and dual touch-screens.
