PlayStation Vita Handheld Console

Sony’s handheld gaming device is dead, and it likely won’t return.

Sony Interactive Entertainment’s Senior Vice President, Hiroyuki Oda, revealed at the 2018 Tokyo Game Show that 2019 is the final year for the PlayStation Vita.

Speaking with Famitsu, Oda also said there are no current plans to develop a successor:

The PlayStation Vita debuted in Japan during December 2011 and released in the west the following February. By 2013, sales had dropped to a mere fraction of Nintendo 3DS sales.

Despite ceasing production of the handheld and its games, Sony has no current plans to stop selling digital titles released for it, which is to say those who own a Vita system can still acquire games off the PS Store.

A moment of silence for the PlayStation Vita…
