Sony’s new handheld gaming console, the PSP Vita, is officially unveild at E3 in Los Angeles…

Sony’s highly anticipated next-gen portable gaming console, the PSP Vita, is coming this year. Previously known as the NGP, the new handheld console has now been given a name and an official unveiling at the recent E3 conference, Los Angeles, June 7-9th, 2011.

Before running through the company’s upcoming products, Jack Tretton, head of Sony’s US gaming division, first apologized to the 77 million users whose accounts were compromised when hackers gained access to the PlayStation Network, adding that network activity had increased to 90% since resulting outage.

Apologies aside, Sony turned to its other goodies, demoing a few great looking new games, a PlayStation branded 3D monitor, then rounded off the presentation with Kazuo Hirai, Executive Deputy President of Sony, unveiling the PSP’s successor, the PSP Vita.

The Vita will run a ARM Cortex A9 4 core CPU and feature a 5-inch multitouch OLED display, a rear multitouch panel, front and rear cameras, motion-sensors, six axis sensors, augmented reality, Wi-Fi and 3G, Bluetooth, built-in mic and speakers, two analog sticks, a direction pad, 4 front action buttons and two shoulder pads.


A new seamless gaming feature allows users to switch between the PS3 and the PSP Vita, picking up the game exactly where you left off. Of course, connectivity allows for all the social gaming capabilities of the PSP, with more to boot.
