Originally announced as the NGP (Next Gen Portable)
Sony has decided to change the portables name to PlayStation Vita or PSVita for short.


Starting at $249 for WiFi only Model and a small increase to $299 for 3G/WiFi Model.

It can be expected to hit stores before Christmas.


The cellphone provider AT&T has already been outed as the carrier for the 3G models of the unit.
So any gamer that is currently using at&t can be happy about this.

At these specs and the starting price I would say Sony has kicked this one out of the park.

And here is a list of PlayStation Vita game developers
Quote:
Eager to toot its horn on the vast third-party support the PlayStation Vita will apparently enjoy, Sony fired off a list of developers in a press email earlier today. The Japanese developers currently dwarf the North American studios who have signed up, but it's understandable: Sony has been doing well in Japan with the PSP for some time now, there's more confidence in the platform there.

Anywho, hit the jump for the full list and give us your best guesses on what they're working on in the comments section!
