The PlayStation Vita has weathered a hard few years since its release in 2011.

According to a message sent to developers that was obtained by Kotaku, Sony's American and European branches "plan to end all Vita GameCard production by close of fiscal year 2018".

Honor 10 launched globally
The Honor 10 was launched last month in China and was offered in two variants - 6GB RAM/64GB storage and 6GB RAM/128GB storage. But the company has made a decision to skip the 64GB variant in India and will be only selling the 128GB storage version.

Interestingly, although physical game cards will no longer be available to players in the USA and United Kingdom from late March 2019 onwards, Sony has confirmed that it will continue to manufacture the game cards in Japan and Asia where the Vita is still selling well.

With Sony's fiscal year ending on March 31, 2019, that's not a lot of time for Vita developers to get their games ready. Eventually, the system would be given new life thanks to its PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Plus support but with Nintendo dominating the handheld market once again with the Nintendo Switch the PS Vita's is likely reaching its end. Digital distribution, however, is still slated to continue. Since then, the PS Vita has been home to a collection of JRPGs, Japanese niche titles, and other indie games.

While I definitely had a great time with my Vita, it's clear that the release of the juggernaut Nintendo Switch rectified so numerous Vita's missteps. Regardless, Sony confirmed to Kotaku that there's a cutoff for final purchase orders on game cards on February 15, 2019.

Since its initial release in 2011, the PlayStation Vita did not seem as successful as its Nintendo counterpart, the Nintendo 3DS. You'll want to build up your library sooner rather than later, especially with prices on the rise.
