Sony Will Stop making PlayStation Vita Physical Games

Sony Will Stop making PlayStation Vita Physical Games

The initial announcement for the PS Vita port came back in January 2017. This means that no more PS Vita physical games will be produced after March 2019.

According to Kotaku, Sony sent an email to developers regarding the status of the PlayStation Vita Carts, stating that "Sony's American and European branches 'plan to end all Vita GameCards production by close of the fiscal year of 2018".


It's been a long, unusual life for the PlayStation Vita, a system that launched here in 2012 with the slogan "console gaming on the go" but quickly lost ground to mobile and tablet gaming, along with the surge of Nintendo's 3DS. The decision made by Sony is understandable considering that PlayStation Vita is not very popular outside of Japan. At the same time, the company informed that it will accept product code requests for the manufacture of cards until June 28 of this year and the final purchase orders will have an entry deadline of February 15, 2019.

Of course, that doesn't include India where the PS Vita hasn't gotten new units officially since mid-2015, and new games haven't released in two years. It's unsurprising that Sony is bringing an end to the console's life cycle, and many will likely question why it's taken them so long considering its lack of support. A pricey, high-powered system that required proprietary memory cards, the Vita quickly lost ground to Nintendo's 3DS... and now, really, Nintendo's Switch. Just this week, the developers of Stardew Valley announced that the game's Vita edition will launch on May 22.
