Sony has confirmed that it doesn’t consider itself to be in the business of making handheld gaming consoles any more. That means we shouldn’t expect a follow-up to the PSP or PlayStation Vita anytime soon, if ever.
President and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment Jim Ryan recently spoke to Game Informer for a feature that looks back on the 25-year history of PlayStation consoles. As part of this, he remembered the PlayStation Vita and confirmed that there were no plans for any more PlayStation consoles like it in the future.
“PlayStation Vita was brilliant in many ways, and the actual gaming experience was great, but clearly it’s a business that we’re no longer in now,” Ryan said.
