Sony Will Continue Making PS Vita Cartridges in Japan For Now

Vita means life... in Japan, at least.

Posted By | On 18th, May. 2018

News broke recently that Sony will be ending production of PS Vita game cards, meaning no more physical releases for the platform, or even new print runs of existing games- adding another nail to the already nail ridden coffin the Vita was stuffed into ages ago. However, that news does not apply to Japan, the one territory where the PS Vita managed to find a modicum of success.

As Kotaku reports, Sony has confirmed that PS Vita game cards will continue to be manufactured for the Japanese market. They have also commented on their plans for future support for the handheld, saying that “at the present moment in time, we intend to continue our marketing activity” for the Vita. Which… isn’t the most reassuring thing to say, but hey, it’s not like Vita has had much show of confidence from Sony anyway.

For now, you can still buy new PS Vita game cards through the rest of the year- after that, the only ones you will be able to purchase are the ones already on the market. No new ones will be put into circulation. So… better get on getting all the ones you wanted and missed before then.
