Sony officially puts an end to its PlayStation Vita. The company today made an announcement signaling that they have ended the production on the handheld gaming console’s last two models.
Introduced in 2011, the Vita fall short on the popularity due to the increasing smartphone apps market. So far, only 16.1 million units of Vita have been solved, lagging far behind from the PlayStation Portable that preceded it, and from Nintendo’s Switch that followed it.
A fun and quirky platform for indie games, PS Vita wasn’t capable enough to gain the attention of audiences and major publishers across the world. As a result, Sony finally made a statement that it would end the production of the device in 2019, while the production of the physical game cards for the device will come to an end by March 31st, 2019 (the end of the 2018 fiscal year). As per the updates, Sony has no plans to release a successor handheld device anytime soon or in future.
