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 is rumoured to be planning a major Next Generation Portable (NGP) showing at E3 2011 in Los Angeles this coming June, revealing the final name, pricing details and game launch line-up, according to latest games industry leaks.
Sony is readying the launch of the successor to the PSP later this year, currently known as the Sony NGP, with Sony boss Jack Tretton already preparing consumers for what may well be a high launch price point.
Sony detailed the media format that NGP will use at a panel for the next-gen handheld at GDC 2011 this week.
Sony has dropped certain features that it originally wanted to have in the forthcoming NGP handheld gaming console in order to keep the pricing down, according to a Sony studios boss.
Leading UK games developer Rebellion has announced that it is set to reveal a mystery third person shooter game for Sony's forthcoming new Next Generation Portable handheld console soon.
