Sony’s Next Generation Portable (NGP) is officially named the Playstation Vita. Vita means “life,” and SCE CEO Kaz Hirai said it will blur the lines between your real life and your ability to play and interact. It’s got two analog sticks, six-axis motion technology, front and rear cameras, OLED screen, and one model will even have 3G. They’re partnering with AT&T as the exclusive carrier.
That last one was announced to surprised groans and laughter from the crowds.
Sony also announced “Party” and “Near,” applications which allow you to connect with your friends list, utilizing social networking and keeping you connected with your community.
