PS Vita production to end in 2019 in Japan, no successor

The reality is that Sony killed PS Vita with themselves, pulled the plug too early on many things.

No plans for a successor, Sony says.



PS Vita will be manufactured until 2019 in Japan and there are currently no plans for a successor, Sony Interactive Entertainment senior vice president Hiroyuki Oda told Famitsu at Tokyo Game Show 2018.

“Currently, we do not have any plans regarding a new handheld device,” Oda said. “In Japan, we will manufacture PlayStation Vita until 2019. From there, shipping will end.”

In related news, Oda confirmed that the 20 titles in the newly announced PlayStation Classic will differ between Japan and the west. (All of the currently announced titles are shared, however.) Oda said that each title is being carefully selected on the basis that it is highly popular, has a lot of fans, and is representative of PlayStation.

eek, I want to order one without the OLED screen, since the blue pixel in those screens dies faster and has weird light bleed. So I better order one before it becomes hard to get one new.

The misfortune of beign handled with a very inept marketing campaign.

Mine still works perfectly well even after years of constant use.
