It’s been a long time coming, but Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan has finally confirmed it. Production has finally ended on the PlayStation Vita in Japan. The official Japanese website for the PlayStation Vita lists the PCH-2000 ZA11 and PCH-2000 ZA23, the two remaining units, as “shipments ended.”

The PlayStation Vita first launched in December 2011 and had a fairly strong reception, especially off the back of the PlayStation Portable’s success. Sadly, sales would decline in latter years, along with sales for high-profile titles as well. Tons of indie games were added to the platform, and it would even be used to market the PS4’s Remote Play function. Cross-play and cross-buy with certain PS3 and PS4 titles also became a good reason to own it.

Though Sony announced that production would be coming to an end soon, it’s an interesting to see it follow through a mere 12 days later. The PlayStation Vita may not have achieved the levels of success as the Nintendo 3DS, but it was still backed by a strong community that enjoyed it for what it was. Stay tuned for more information on the handheld’s fate in the United States and Europe.
