I would not be suprised if the Vita gets taken off the shelves everywhere except Japan by this years end. It sells like the XBOX ONE in Japan, which means not at all.

Nintendo has still a few games coming out for the 3DS so they wont cut off life support yet.
Switch is doing pretty fine.

PS4 still business as usual despite supply issues in Japan and still not sure what to think of Xbox Ones performance this year.
