Sony NGP handheld to be named Sony PS Vita

It seems that you can't go ten minutes before another Sony website hacking story breaks, but when the company makes it this easy, you can't help but snigger.

Neogaf forum user gofreak has had a little look at the source code for Sony's E3 2011 teaser website and spied something rather interesting; a brief line that contains, what is believed to be, the official name of Sony's forthcoming new handheld.

Codenamed NGP, it seems that the real name of the new console - due to be unveiled at E3 next week - is PS Vita (or PlayStation Vita).

Sony has now removed the errant code, but sadly that horse has not just bolted, it's moving at the speed of light. Or, at the speed of broadband Internet, at least.
