E3 2011Sony had a decent smattering of exclusive new games on show at its E3 2011 press conference, alongside not one but two new hardware announcements, with the surprise arrival of a PlayStation-branded 3D television.
E3 2011The hardcore PlayStation fans that stayed up late to catch Sony's E3 2011 conference were treated to loads of new game announcements, alongside the final reveal of the name and details on Sony's new handheld, to be called PlayStation Vita.
Sony has filed for trademark on the name PSVita, pretty much putting to bed the many rumours surrounding the official name for the NGP.
Clearly there are going to be two big stories from E3 2011 – Nintendo's successor to the Wii (code-name Project Café) and Sony's successor to the PlayStation Portable (code-name Next Generation Portable).
Sony is rumoured to be planning on calling its new handheld console – currently referred to as NGP (Next Generation Portable) – the Sony Vita.
Not only is Sony tightening the PS4 purse strings, but it seems the company is finding ways to cut costs on its NGP handheld console too.
