Sony has registered trademarks for two terms that suggest its new handheld will indeed be called Vita.
According to a member of NeoGAF, the platform holder has trademarked both the names PSVita and PlayStation Vita, as well as a logo.
Vita is rumoured to be the final name of NGP, Sony's next generation portable. Rumours first began appearing as the term Vita appeared in new web domains and pamphlets.
More information on NGP, including its final name, are expected to be unveiled during Sony's E3 press conference, which takes place tomorrow morning at 1am BST.
