PlayStation Boss Confirms Sony Won’t Do Another Gaming Handheld

Sony has confirmed some unfortunate news for fans of their gaming handhelds – they’re not planning on doing another handheld.

Sony Interactive Entertainment president Jim Ryan confirmed the news in the PlayStation 25th anniversary feature over on Game Informer.

“Clearly it’s a business we’re no longer in now,” Ryan said of the beloved yet somewhat niche gaming handhelds they’ve offered – the PlayStation Portable and the PlayStation Vita.

Despite the somber news, he added that “PlayStation Vita was brilliant in many ways, and the actual gaming experience was great.”
