PSP2 called PlayStation Vita?

Online rumour and domains suggest so.

Domains and online reports suggest the Next Generation Portable – Sony's PlayStation Portable successor – is called the PlayStation Vita.

Vita is Latin and Italian for "life".

GamesPundit brings word from a source that NGP's formal name is PS Vita, and provides an image containing the logo.

Adding authenticity to the Vita name is mention of it on a Sony developer subdomain called Vita.SCEdev.net, noticed by Joystiq.
