Sony has announced the discontinuation of the PlayStation (Vita) TV in Japan.
The PS TV was intended to be a home console version of the PS Vita that can be plugged into a TV. However it didn’t do well in terms of sales. Now the official Japanese listing says 出荷完了, which means end of support in Japanese. But they didn’t provide a date yet.
The PS TV remains on sale in other countries, however we are yet to hear from Sony about the product in other regions.
The unit has only sold around 185,000 units since its launch in November 2013, which is clearly not a big number.
What do you think about this guys? Did you care about it at all? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
Sony has discontinued Facebook support by releasing updates for both PS3 and PS Vita. The versions are 4.78 and 3.57 respectively.
This is all what we know according to Sony. But we guess they did this due to changes in the Facebook API, however it’s surprising for it to be discontinued for the Vita, but as we all know Sony isn’t treating the Vita very well.
Have any of you guys used the Facebook feature? Let us know.
Has Sony Computer Entertainment America confirmed a price cut for both PS4 and PS Vita?
SCEA has a PlayStation Retail Loyalty Site where video game retail employees in North America can learn about PlayStation products. On the site, there is a promotion where members have the opportunity to win a PS4, PS Vita, PS TV (PS Vita TV in Asia) and some various other prizes. But if you look at the ARV prices (Approximate Retail Value) for both the PS4 and PS Vita, it shows a lower price.
Currently, the PS4 costs $399 and the PS Vita costs $199 in the United States. But as you can see in that picture the PS4 is getting a $50 price cut and the PS Vita is getting a MASSIVE $110 PRICE CUT!!!! Will this be announced at E3?
Some people are worried about the PS Vita price cut being so much because of the fact Sony might discontinue it. We don’t think that will happen too early, as Sony still has some things going on for it. It recently launched in China, so it wouldn’t make sense to discontinue it now. We might see some Vita news at E3, but who knows?
