Sony PS Vita Physical Game Production to End by March 2019

PlayStation winds down Vita support

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.

In the message to developers that was obtained by Kotaku, Sony also asked for all PS Vita product code requests to be submitted by June 28 this year and for all final purchase orders to be entered by February 15 next year.

Game developer ConcernedApe and publisher Chucklefish have officially announced that Stardew Valley will launch on PlayStation Vita this month. Although the hardware manufacturer claims that digital distribution will continue through PlayStation store, this move will mark the end of physical cards for Sony's portable gaming system. Following that, third-party developers may no longer be able to get Vita cartridges made. The company has not, however, offered any details on when - rather than if - it plans to retire the Vita itself.

Stardew Valley has already reached fans on PS4, Switch, PC, Wii U, and it's even available for Mac and Linux farmers.

The PlayStation Vita has been facing an uphill battle since its launch. Sony has since confirmed to the publication that this is indeed true. There's also ample support for the system in Japan, including import-only releases like Attack on Titan 2, which fans have been purchasing. You'll want to build up your library sooner rather than later, especially with prices on the rise. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for the PlayStation Vita.
