Sony finally gives up ghost on PS Vita, stops production of physical games

3 monthes ago   |   By Pocket-lint

It seems that Sony's critically acclaimed but ultimately struggling handheld, the PS Vita , is soon to be an ex-console.

Other than a small, dedicated fan base, there aren't many that will miss it in the West,...
