Sony plans to end the production of Vita game cards by the end of the fiscal year 2018 in Europe and North America.
According to a report from Kotaku, Sony is ending production on physical games for the PlayStation Vita, although digital distribution will still continue. The Playstation Vita maintains a very loyal fan base, myself included and is still home to many new indie, and JRPG games, as well as a great place to play Playstation classics.
This means that developers are more than welcome to keep developing games for the platform, just that they probably shouldn't expect to see a physical release of their games anymore.
While I definitely had a great time with my Vita, it's clear that the release of the juggernaut Nintendo Switch rectified so numerous Vita's missteps.
The game is now available on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. A spokesperson from Sony has confirmed to Kotaku that the company has decided that it will stop producing physical games for the handheld device.
Sony themselves demonstrated that when they announced they drop the PlayStation Vita from the PlayStation Plus programme. There's also ample support for the system in Japan, including import-only releases like Attack on Titan 2, which fans have been purchasing. If you want to get any physical Vita cards for your collection, now is the time to buy. Unfortunately, PS Vita players will have to miss out on the upcoming multiplayer beta, as it won't be coming to the handheld.
