Sony to stop production of PS Vita in Japan next year, no plans for a successor
Sony have announced at the Tokyo game show today that they will stop the production of PS Vita in 2019.
One day after announcing the upcoming release of the PlayStation classic, Sony have put the final nail in the Vita’s coffin: the electronics giant revealed they will stop producing the console in Japan next year. Given that Japan was by far the best market for the console, this basically means the end of the line for the portable device.
Sony stated that new games will still be produced for the console, but with a reduced lineup compared to previous years.
Last but not least, they confirmed the company has no current plans to work on a successor to the PS Vita.
If we’re lucky, this might at least mean no more surprise firmware updates…
