Portable PlayStation might make a comeback

Although the Nintendo Switch was long rumored, just like a new smartphone, its wild success was still a pleasant surprise, even to Nintendo itself. But no one was perhaps more surprised than Sony's PlayStation division, which didn't see a market for portable gaming. At least according to former PS chief Andrew House.

PS Vita GameCard production ending soon

The Nintendo Switch may have revolutionized portable consoles but it wasn't the first in that category. That same promise of "console gaming on the go" was made by the Sony PlayStation Vita around 6 years ago.

Now it seems that the writing on the wall has appeared for the PS Vita with Sony confirming that the production of physical games for the portable console is being laid to rest.

But that design change may also have some added benefits as YouTuber Zack Nelson from JerryRigEverything found out in his trifecta of durability test performed on the Sony Xperia XZ2.
