PS VITA Not Manufacturing Anymore

I have, and still am, owner of PSP. The PSP was a great gaming console. I’ve known of PS Vita for 2 or 3 years now and want to purchase it, as I am interesed of 5 or 6 games for the console.

Today, I have been in contact with a representant of Webhallen.com and was asking for the price for the unit, and if they have it, as I have not been succesfull in finding it at any retailers yet. He told me that they don’t have it in stock anymore beacuase the manufacturing of Vita has ceased.

As I don’t found any info on any sites about the matter yet, I have decided to write this post and inform you. So Vita is dead and there aren’t any news of a new portable console from Sony. It’s a sad day, folks, sad indeed.

PLAYSTATION VR IS SELLING WITH PROFIT

When new consoles are released, they usually tend to sell with lost at first.

“We have made some money on the VR- konsole”, says Shawn Layden in the board for Sony Worldwide Studios to polygon.

Playstation VR was released just three days ago. It costs 399 euros. Its’ competitors Oculus Rift and HTC Vive have prices set at 599 euro and 799 euro. That makes PSVR worth buying if you are into gaming and “stuff” =)
