Sony rules out new portable console as PS Vita discontinued

PS Vita – Sony’s last portable?
The PS Vita portable is to end production next year and Sony says it has no plans to replace it with a new system.

2019 will mark the end of an era for PlayStation, as Sony has confirmed it will stop production of the PS Vita and for the first time since 2004 will not have a portable console to sit alongside their home system.
‘In Japan, we will manufacture PlayStation Vita until 2019. From there, shipping will end’, Sony Interactive Entertainment senior vice president Hiroyuki Oda told Famitsu magazine, as translated by Gematsu .
But he also added that, ‘Currently, we do not have any plans regarding a new handheld device’.
That’s not necessarily a surprise but it does seem to quash any last hopes that Sony would attempt to create a new handheld.

With the 3DS also appearing to be near the end of its useful life, it is unclear whether the concept of dedicated portable-only consoles will survive the generation.
Sony has previously hinted that they might be considering a hybrid device, inspired by the success of the Nintendo Switch, but a dedicated handheld now seems out of the question.

The PS Vita was released in late 2011 in Japan and early 2012 in the West, but unlike its predecessor, the PSP, was never very successful. The PSP was one of the best-selling consoles ever in Japan, which boosted its lifetime sales to over 80 million, only a little less than the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
But the PS Vita is currently only on around 16 million and, in part thanks to the absence of Monster Hunter, was never anywhere near as popular in its home market.
