Sony Discontinuing PlayStation Vita Cartridges

Sony Discontinuing PlayStation Vita Cartridges

After nearly 7 years in the market, Sony's ill-fated portable console, PlayStation Vita, continues to slowly advance toward what will be the end of its cycle and a few moments ago important information was revealed that has to do with its games in the physical edition.

Kotaku reached out to Sony after getting their hands on the email, and Sony confirmed that they would be ceasing development of physical game cartridges for the portable system that's already hanging onto life by a thread.

Sony plans to end the production of Vita game cards by the end of the fiscal year 2018 in Europe and North America.

In its message, Sony added that "all Vita product code requests be submitted by June 28, 2018, and that final purchase orders be entered by February 15, 2019".




Sony will soon end the production of PlayStation Vita physical games, another move that signals the approaching death of the portable console. What do you think about the decision of Sony?

Since its initial release in 2011, the PlayStation Vita did not seem as successful as its Nintendo counterpart, the Nintendo 3DS.

This move feels like a long time coming for the handheld, one referred to as a "Legacy Console" as early as 2015.

However, the system was still going strong in Japan until very recently and it appears you will still be able to buy physical Vita games over there. Sony's immensely powerful handheld showed huge promise when it came to mobile games with depth, yet its use of expensive proprietary memory cards made it a pricy investment.
