The brave PS Vita was graced with some genuinely impressive games but the end is nigh as Sony are to finish production of the cartridges that are used by physical copies of games. Publishers will be able to order them up until February next year but they will stop rolling off the production line in Europe and America at the end of March 2019.
The Vita did well in the West for the first couple of years and had it’s own Assassin’s Creed (which I’m playing right now and it’s great), a brand new Killzone game that really showed what you could do with the system, and even a port of Borderlands 2. However, support waned after a few years and a number of games were just downright poor such as the Vita Call of Duty, and everyone’s still waiting for Vita Bioshock.
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 will be dropping the free PS Vita games from PlayStation Plus next year, another sign that the Vita really hasn’t got much longer to live.
