PSP Vita price
Recently we've been asked a couple of times whether we think there will be a PS Vita in 2015 - or if there will ever be a PS Vita 2. In some ways it is a tough question to answer: there is literally no information in the public domain that even hints at a PS Vita 2. But that also makes it easy, and I will say it up front: I'd be surprised if there is ever a PS Vita 2. But that doesn't mean there won't be a new PS Vita this year. And it certainly doesn't mean the Vita is on the slide. Far from it. In this article I explain what is the PS Vita, why the PS Vita is set to be around for a good while yet, and why there may well be a new PS Vita in 2015. But I also opine that we won't ever see a PS Vita 2.
Disagree? Have additional information? Let me know in the comments below.
