In the console space, there is Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo, each of whom have their own home console device. However when it comes to handhelds, that space was pretty much a fight between Nintendo and Sony, although it seems that now Sony could finally be conceding that market to Nintendo entirely.
This is because Sony has officially ended the production of its PlayStation Vita console. We had previously heard that Sony would be winding down production, and it looks like it has finally come to an end. The PS Vita was launched back in 2011 which means that it has been around for about 8 years or so, although in the past few years, Sony hasn’t really done much with it.
It is unclear if Sony has plans to eventually come back with a new handheld, but last we heard, we probably shouldn’t expect to see anything anytime soon. These days gamers have smartphones and the games on our mobile devices are also becoming increasingly complex, turning our mobile devices into proper gaming machines.
Nintendo is also doing pretty well on the mobile front and have been releasing games for their smartphones. However their 3DS handhelds have also been doing well, and the Nintendo Switch which has the ability to double up as a handheld console.
