Sony have confirmed that the NGP’s proper title is PlayStation Vita. The new portable will apparently be fairly heavy on social networking options, with the likes of the Near and Party features. Near allows you to compare trophies and such with others, while party allows you to chat to friends, regardless of what game you’re playing.

The NGP itself has a 5″ OLED touch screen, touch pads on its rear, dual analog sticks and Wi-Fi. There will be two models available when it launches later this year, of which are a Wi-Fi model and a 3G plus Wi-Fi model. CVG are reporting that the price of the Wi-Fi only model could be around £235 here in the UK.
