Nobody cares that the Latin word is pronounced that way, just like nobody cares that DS stood for Developer System and not Dual Screen.


It did during the development process, but they offically changed it to Dual Screen before the release.


after people started calling it the dual screen

How does Sony pronounce it? Pretty sure that's how it's supposed to be pronounced.


If you watched the GC 2013 Sony press con; "Vee-tuh".

Maybe the accent but I sometimes hear "Vee-trr". rrrrrrr! xD Letter R

Sony doesn't know Latin? LOL I bet their illiterate marketing division will name their next handheld PlayStation Stercus Caballi!

Playing a Vita in public will get anyone laughed at and ridiculed by all. I've seen it happen myself. I wouldn't dare talk about it.

This reminds me of something you would read in a COD forum.

"The gewehr is pronounced 'give-air' dammit!"
"The Wunderwaffe is pronounced 'Vunder-vaffa' because of W's in german are V's"

The pronunciation threads were everywhere...

*edit*
Oh and there is the "Ys is pronounced like 'geese' without the g" too. Lets just cover them all in this thread and help everyone.

Ack, ack, ahem...

Veni, vidi, vici:

- Pronounced in Classical Latin: Weni, widi, wiki
- Pronounced in Ecclesiastical Latin: Veni, vidi, viti

No one ever pronounces that phrase in Classical Latin, and so it would logically follow that most people would pronounce Vita in Ecclesiastical Latin.
