Two weeks ago, we reported that Sony was planning to discontinue PlayStation Vita in Japan. Production had already halted in Europe and the Americas, but Japan was still churning out the handheld, albeit at a much slower pace. When Sony gave a similar notice for PlayStation 3's discontinuation, they waited another two months before pulling the trigger, but not so for Vita.

The only two models still in production at the time of that warning were the PCH-2000 ZA11 (PS Vita Black) and PCH-2000 ZA23 (PS Vita Aqua Blue) models. However, the pages for both now state that shipments have ended. This is the official end of PlayStation Vita. A few more units will be sold here and there as stores clear out the last of their product, but Sony will not be manufacturing any more new Vita units.
