E3 2011: NGP Officially Named "Vita," Games Previewed
"Vita" means "life."
As Kaz Hirai is saying right now, it'll be the first product that truly blurs those lines between entertainment and your real life; it'll let you interact with gamers and friends like never before.
It's certainly a slick-looking device and Kaz has also announced that they'll be partnering with AT&T as the exclusive carrier in the United States. Kaz also talked about two new features - Party and Near - which will enhance the connected experience for the Vita, and "more specifics will be unveiled in the very near future."
They also moved on to show off Uncharted: Golden Abyss, which looks damn amazing on that sweet little screen! And their motto is "play the way you want;" you can either use the standard analog sticks to play, or you can use the touch-screen. We love having options, ya know. They also showed off a few other games, all of which look pretty damn cool. But the coolest? Has to be LittleBigPlanet on the Vita, which should make your trips infinitely more enjoyable in the very near future.
Still, that Street Fighter X Tekken announcement has got to satisfy the long-time fighting fans, right?
