PlayStation Vita development kit priced at €1900

Sony has revealed that Vita development kits will cost just €1900 plus VAT, making the upcoming portable a viable proposition to smaller studios.

I really want the Vita to succeed, as it has many things going for it: attractive hardware, especially the addition of a second analogue stick; a competitive price point, helping it to compete with Apple’s and Nintendo’s offerings; and a cheap devkit with which to entice indie developers.

Code name: Next Generation Portable

When Sony unveiled the successor to the PlayStation Portable two weeks ago, they specifically called it by its code name. I find this somewhat strange: if its final name is indeed PSP2 as is commonly thought, they would probably have named it as such during the announcement. My guess is that Sony is trying to reposition the NGP as an all-purpose portable device and not just a games platform, and the final name will likely reflect this. However, I don’t expect them to drop the well-recognised “PlayStation” brand altogether.
