With a lack of support provided by Sony towards its current handheld system, the possibility of Sony discontinuing the system seems more than likely as time passes by.
What? This again? I've just finished playing a 3 hour long session of helldivers on the Vita, now I'm playing Hotline Miami 2, and later maybe even Axiom Verge when it comes out. Really now? these "journalists" should give this handheld a break. It has a lot of games and I think I won't get tired of it even for the next 3 years because of its library. In short, I, and many others, just don't use our Vita as remote play for our PS4 duh. (Bloodborne remote play was awesome tho)
Desperate for hits sites,lol! Just finished Lego Ninjago Shadow of Ronin PS Vita version which is heads and shoulders better than the 3DS version in terms of graphics in 720p. I really have bad news for PS Vita haters: The PS Vita is gonna stay for a whole lot longer. :P
Every video game platform in the history of forever gets discontinued eventually.
it depends on what you consider a platform, i see psn, steam and xbox live continuing for some time, and from the future on backwards compatibility should be easier.
I can see it happening in the west in a year and half. But Japan it will probably stay til Nintendo 3DS successor drop. Which is about 3 years away.
Holy Mother of god!!! Are you nostradamus or what??
no and y are u getting emotional
Maybe in the west best it'll be fine in Japan where it's thriving.
This is what I'm thinking. There was a time when I thought that maybe Sony would just give up on the Vita, but that's only because I look at it from a Western point of view. The Vita is starting to do really well in Japan with weekly sales right around where the 3DS is. Vita games in Japan are best sellers. And if Sony wants to maintain any presence in its home country, it needs to have a handheld gaming system to offer. That means despite the doomsayers, the Vita isn't going anywhere. There will probably be another one as well. They're not going to give up that entire market to Nintendo.
April Fools PS vita is not going anywhere in any time soon...
this crap again, how many years have they said Vita is doomed? Since like 2013 and its still standing in the gaming market. "Oh the Vita is gnna die this year soon" 2 years later "Vita is flopping and might die soon"
Its not gonna happen because the Vita sales are decent in Japan. The vita is great and you guys should try is out
Even if its just getting indies and small games, it is still supported well. No way the vita will be discontinued soon with all those indies and also look at all the great games japanese gamers are getting. Still using my vita a ton even though there are hardly any games I would want to get in future releases.
vita support will cease to be when there are no longer indies, or it becomes as old as the psp.
