Limited Run Games has been releasing physical Vita games on a monthly basis.

The article isn't saying there aren't any releases, but Sony has been reported as saying that they'll stop production on physical Vita games next year.

Seems like everyone has been supporting the Vita better than Sony! Sold mine so I moved on...

Thank you. The vita had died more than 3 years ago but there’s triggered fans on this site that won’t accept it lol

Article headline doesn't match with the closing statement . Is it alive or dead?
Anyway, yea Sony could have dedicated more $ into 1st party to keep it alive in the same way Nintendo does. But I believe the real problem is what Sony stated earlier: Mobile gaming. It turned handheld consoles into a niche. And while the Switch is doing well now, they'll suffer from the same challenges after the honeymoon is over...

See the similarity in what Sony say about mobile gaming and what MS say about single player games? When these companies f**k up everything else is to blame but them.

Sony made so many missteps with the Vita which is why many punters were put off. Its like they learnt nothing from the PSP.

What kind of missteps? Not enough games?

AmstradAmiga92d ago

The first major misstep was introducing another proprietary storage format...then pricing it unrealistically.

Vita still gets a lot of games. But I guess in some peoples eyes if those games are multi-million dollar AAA games they don't count. Unfortunate really.

I had a look at a list of games coming this year and it's mostly cheap indie games you'd expect for a phone, not everything has to be a larger budget game but it would be nice to get one here and there.

Sgt_Slaughter92d ago

There's a pretty limited market for the Vita's current games, and most are niche in of themselves, so yes most gamers wouldn't invest in the system now or ever.

I think you meant to say "aren't" instead.

Western developed games died off for it but not the east.. Memory cards, L2/R2, are why it failed i think.. It was a great machine back then.. Switch is like its spiritual successor for me anyway..
