The PS Vita Has Officially Ended Production in Japan

Covering a bit of news we already knew was coming, Sony has officially ended its production of the PS Vita in Japan. The word that the Vita was on the road to being discontinued came out back in September when Sony declared they weren't moving forward with the handheld console anymore and were eventually going to discontinue it in 2019. We're barely into March, and Sony has already put the last nail in the coffin, showing that they've completed production on the last two models, the PCH-2000 ZA11 (PS Vita Black) and the PCH-2000 ZA23 (PS Vita Aqua Blue).

Service to the devices will continue for a while, with Sony giving no confirmed timeframe as to when they'd stop providing access to the PlayStation Network or stop allowing items like store functionality or use of PlayStation Plus, so if you decide to buy one now and start collecting a game library on the cheap, you still have time to use it.
