Sony Computer Entertainment CEO Andrew House has referred to the PlayStation Vita as a “legacy platform”. What does that mean?
You might be confused about why Sony called the PS Vita legacy as that means it’s no longer supported. The legacy Sony is talking about is different.
Andrew was explaining the financial state of the PlayStation business, and what he meant was about the components for the first generation PS Vita, which is no longer available in the market. An example of this would be the OLED display.
“What Andy mentioned as ‘legacy platform’ was part of the write-off for PS Vita components for the first generation of the PS Vita, which is no longer available in the market,” a Sony spokesperson said in a statement provided to GamesBeat. “And he did not directly mean the current PS Vita and PS TV models, which are available in the market. Our portable business will be continued, and many users are now enjoying PlayStation 4 remote play features as well as original PS Vita game titles on PS Vita and PS TV.”
