Sony hasn’t shown the PS Vita a whole lot of love over the past couple of years, but has instead left it to third-party developers – mainly indies – to fill the void with games.
Since the manufacturer has flat-out refused to acknowledge the failures of the console, more specifically, its failures in marketing and supporting the console, it’s not beyond the realm of reason that it’d quietly stop selling it all together.
That’s exactly what appears to be happening in the Netherlands, Europe. A report from Dutch media site Tweakers claims that many of the nations biggest retailers aren’t carrying any PS Vita stock and, furthermore, they don’t expect to be replenishing their inventory anytime soon as they’ll not be receiving shipments from Sony.
We’ve already seen Sony pull this move over the last few weeks with the platform holder quietly shying away from the disaster that was the PS TV – a disaster of it’s own doing, we might add.
It’s only a matter of time, then, before Sony pulls the plug completely to maintain its focus on the PS4 and PSVR, or at least that’s where things seem to be heading.
