Sony 'Considers Various Options' Around Vita

Sony 'Considers Various Options' Around Vita - News

by Adam Cartwright , posted on 23 May 2018 / 3,201 Views

An interview by Bloomberg Japan with Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO John Kodera has revealed that Sony still has the Vita on its mind, but he also suggested that the company has no immediate plans for the machine nor for a successor in the near future.

The news comes after the company announced it was ending the production of Vita carts in the west and dropping Vita from its PS Now and PS Plus support, so whatever its considerations are, it seems a little late in the day!

I'm guessing this was "hey guys... have we considered what we're gonna do with that warehouse full of Vitas?, hmmmmmm"

So many options to consider: traditional funeral, cremation, burial by sea... ;-)

I'm sad the Vita TV never took off, it could've been a nice piece of tech with a very low price. It had the potential to compete rather well on the mini-console market.

If it could only run Netflix it would've been everything I could've asked for :(

They won't reveal a sucessor outside of their own conference and the answer of no plans at the moment is pretty standard.
About the "option" that is just to pretend they are still doing something with Vita.

This is PR talk. The Vita is now subject of a magic trick. Now it's here, now it's not here, now it's here, now it's not here.

It's a shame they never considered supporting it after 2013.

There are reports that Sony is considering an all in approach like they did with the PS4, center it around the gamer not gimmicks and enhance the size a bit you got yourself a portable ps4
