The PS Vita, for most of us, has been an important part of our childhood gaming. It will not be manufactured further, as officially mentioned by Sony.
The previous two models of PS were also discontinued by Sony; as declared from their official Japan website. We won’t be seeing this unique portable gaming console further in the market.
Sony’s official announcement of ending further production of PS Vita after 8 long years.
Sony had already discontinued the physical PS Vita games section. And will also filter out all the Vita games from the monthly free games section of the Instant Games Collection from the previous year. Ultimately drawing the curtains on the entire Vita ecosystem.
However, in India, gamers can get PS Vita as long as the stock remains; at a market price of around RS 20,000. If you are a gaming enthusiast and have a passion for collecting gaming related accessories; then grab the PS Vita as soon as possible because Sony won’t be manufacturing any successor for PS Vita.
Another choice in the portable gaming console category in India can be the Nintendo Switch; which you can grab for a market price of around Rs 25,000.
About Sony’s PS Vita
Sony PS Vita started its journey from Japan in 2011; about eight years from now. During that time, PS Vita faced tough competition from the Nintendo; another contender in the Wii controllers category.
The Nintendo faced a downfall during its initial years; but then in 2016 faced a high-rise with the release of Nintendo Switch.
With time, Sony stopped focussing on PS Vita. Moreover, shifted their focus on upgraded versions like PS4, PS4 Slim, PS4 Pro.
Sony’s decision of ending PS Vita production is not a surprise; because Sony’s senior Executive already mentioned about their decision much before.
With the termination of PS Vita, Sony can now focus more on Play Station Plus. Its cloud gaming services, which is easily accessible by using different PS Consoles.
