Xbox 360. 360. A geometrical setting where you return to your original position.
A Latin word for life is significantly better than either of those.
As for the hardware, it looks awesome. I own the original PSP and still play it where it's cumbersome to carry a laptop or when I want to play games I don't get on PC. That's really all consoles and handhelds are for...to play games I can't get on my PC.
Yeah but Wii at least was somewhat marketable. Kids would make jokes about playing with their WiiWiis and you'd remember it with that.
Vita is...hmmm...can't think of a single way to market that without tying in some poor latin singer and selling it only in South America.
You can either name a console a cool name, a funny name, or something generic that makes the point (ie: PlayStation)...Vita is neither. Sounds like a brand of pet food or something.
"Dude is that a Vita?"
"Yeah man, ain't my Vita cool!"
Gaaaaaaahhhh!!! There is no way they can make Vita sound cool. All I can think about is pet food, 55+ vitamins, and latino music.
