Sony also stipulates that all requests for Vita product codes be presented by 28th June 2018, and final purchase orders submitted by 15th February 2019.

In an e-mail to Kotaku, a Sony spokesperson confirmed that Vita card production is coming to an end. After announcing earlier this year it will remove the device from the PlayStation Plus program, it's been confirmed today the company plans to end production of physical Vita games for the United States and Europe at the end of the fiscal year.

With Sony's fiscal year ending on March 31, 2019, that's not a lot of time for Vita developers to get their games ready.

The PlayStation Vita has weathered a hard few years since its release in 2011. What do you think about the decision of Sony?

The PlayStation Vita has been facing an uphill battle since its launch. It was to be the most advanced handheld console ever designed with substantial blockbuster titles such as Uncharted Golden Abyss, Resistance: Burning Skies, and Killzone: Mercenary.

Physical Vita games will apparently still be made for Japan and Asia, while digital game distribution and sales are expected to continue worldwide. However, support waned after a few years and a number of games were just downright poor such as the Vita Call of Duty, and everyone's still waiting for Vita Bioshock.

Currently, the Nintendo 3DS is still being supported by its developer, noted by the upcoming re-release of "Luigi's Mansion", originally released for the GameCube, despite the release of the newest system, the Nintendo Switch.
