It won't be official until it's unveiled on stage during Sony's E3 press conference, but bookmakers are surely cutting off bets on the NGP's final name after this trademark filing turned up overnight.


Called, yes, the PlayStation Vita, the filing was filed with the Trademarks and Designs Registration Office of the European Union on June 6, was submitted by Sony Computer Entertainment and even included the snappy logo you see above.

The listing follows on from a discovery last week that Sony had included the term "PlayStation Vita" on its E3 web site.

Woah, guys. I just had an idea...

What if PSVita is actually the name for the software on the NGP?

For example, PSVita could actually be a service that both runs on your NGP and interacts with all of your devices or PS3 and original PSP. They kept talking about living the PlayStation Life, and I wonder if that's what this is all about.

Just a thought, though. I still think this is pretty compelling toward the chance that this is their new portable name, but then, if PSVita is some new service that runs through the NGP, it could also explain a lot.
