It would be a shame if Sony had given up on Vita, but their output had always been spotty at best for me anyway. For example, I feel that Killzone was a great example of a handheld version of a home console franchise, where Uncharted was a terrible one. Soul Sacrifice felt great as a handheld game to me (just the right level of production values; just the right length boss fights) whereas Freedom Wars felt a bit over-produced to me.

What I liked most on Vita, from Sony, was the mid-tier stuff - a lot of which was also on PS3. So for example, Sly 4 felt great on Vita. Same with PSABR. Modnation, although a game which ran poorly, worked really well on Vita. Sadly, that kind of stuff isn't really being made by Sony as a whole anymore, so their pulling out of support doesn't make a whole lot of difference (there's hints of it every now and again, such as Alienation from Housemarque).

Anyway, I'd imagine the people (and indeed companies) who are still interested in Vita in the west don't care about this kind of statement.

Indies don't really care if it's a legacy platform or a current one, and the localization houses will probably use the sales of their already released games (i.e. XSEED saying that Vita games have done quite well for them) to show that the demand is still there.

Perhaps that's just wishful thinking on my behalf. The last 2 years of Vita have just been fantastic for me - I've loved nearly every surprise niche localization that was announced, and it's certainly been keeping my buying habits busy.

It's my hope that at least in 2016 we continue to get this kind of stuff. The games are still coming out in Japan so there's hope at least. Things like Stranger of Sword City from NISA; Tokyo Xanadu/Luminous Arc Infinity from XSEED; Nep Zombie from IFI; Utawarerumono from Atlus; Land of no night from Tecmo Koei and god-knows-what from Aksys. A year like that would be equal if not better than 2014/15 which I've loved.

The guy also said Japan is staying strong, so I'm pretty sure this only means for the West - Japanese devs and likely indies here will probably keep up support fine.

It won't get us new Vita owners here, which is arguably what the console needed for Sony, and it won't get Sony to stop dicking around with PSN, but that seems to be something to expect on all their consoles from now on anyway.

It gave me P4G and DR, so it'll always be a great little system.

I too love my vita. The Japanese and niche games that were released on it and localized were fun to play.

The retail price for Vita TV's went back up to $80 for the base model, but Amazon has the same model for about $60.

Just to clarify, was he suggesting that more people buy a Vita?
