Sony announced the end of PlayStation Vita carts

PS Vita Physical Games Card

Rejoice, the long-awaited PlayStation Vita edition of Stardew Valley is coming very soon. Here's to you my sweet Vita, may you enjoy your final resting place on the shelf next to my Game Boy Colour and Sega Mega Gear. After announcing earlier this year it will remove the device from the PlayStation Plus program, it's been confirmed today the company plans to end production of physical Vita games for the USA and Europe at the end of the fiscal year.

It seems Sony is all but done with the PlayStation Vita. Publishers will be able to order them up until February next year but they will stop rolling off the production line in Europe and America at the end of March 2019. Despite its impressive specs back in the day, the console lost ground due to mobile titles, tablet gaming, and other competitors in the handheld gaming market.

Physical Vita games will apparently still be made for Japan and Asia, while digital game distribution and sales are expected to continue worldwide.

Sony has confirmed that it is ceasing the manufacture of physical games for the PlayStation Vita, its ill-fated hand-held console, within a year. The portable console is definitely on its way out, but Sony is apparently killing off the PS Vita slowly.

Anyone who has played Stardew Valley on the Nintendo Switch can attest to how perfectly suited the game is to a portable gaming platform. Fans have complained all these years about the expensive memory cards and we hope after Sony is finally done with Vita, its time to make memory cards cheap to make the owners of the handheld console happy.
