The PlayStation Vita was a handheld system manufactured by Sony Interactive Entertainment, and the successor to the PlayStation Portable, released in Winter 2012.

The PS Vita is backwards compatible with all PlayStation Portable software, but like the PSP Go, it lacks a UMD drive, relying instead on PlayStation Vita cards, a proprietary flash memory card. PlayStation Portable games and PlayStation Network software must be stored in PlayStation Vita memory cards. It is capable of interacting with the PlayStation 4 through Remote Play.

On September 9th, 2013, Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan announced the PlayStation Vita TV, a set-top microconsole based on the Vita. At E3 2014, Sony Interactive Entertainment America announced the localization of the Vita TV. In Western markets, the console is known as the PlayStation TV. However, due to low sales and interest, the PlayStation TV was discontinued in all markets in February 2016.

The Vita itself appears to have been discontinued as well[1], with new units quickly proving difficult to obtain as of January 2017[2]. Sony cites a lack of interest in dedicated portable devices as users increasingly favor both iOS and Android as gaming platforms over the Vita[3]. Nevertheless, the handheld has developed something akin to a cult status, as third-party development of games for the system continues into present day.
