What do the letters in Vita stand for? Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter 37 viewsJuly 6, 2019HardwareGeneral 0 LeonDB40432 November 16, 2017 Do the letters Vita for the PS Vita actually stand for anything? Why did they not just call it the PSP 2 since this is pretty much what it is. 1 Answer ActiveVotedNewestOldest 0 Dan Hastings1.89K Posted November 18, 2017 0 Comments Even though it is often spelt using caps, Vita is not an acronym. Vita is a Latin word that means life. Quite ironic really considering Sony have wanted this thing to die for years.
