Many players want Sony to re-enter the handheld market, launching PSV’s successor handheld consoles to play Sony’s first-party games such as “Marvel Spider-Man,” “God of War” and “Mystery Sea” anytime, anywhere. The bad news, however, is impossible. Sony’s first handheld console, the PSP, became a symbol of fashion electronics in the underdeveloped days of the phone and was loved by a large number of users, although it did not outsell rival Nintendo’s NDS, but still achieved excellent results.
However, in the subsequent PSV suffered a great failure, in the competition with 3DS early defeat. With its heavyweight gaming IP and strong console performance, will Sony be able to re-emerge and face off against Nintendo in the handheld gaming market?
In an interview with Game Informer, Jim Ryan, president of Sony’s PS division, responded that Sony was not interested in introducing a new handheld and pointed out that the handheld was no longer Sony’s business. But he himself says he is one of hundreds of people who think PSV is great.
“PlayStation Vita is great in many ways and the gaming experience is great, but obviously we’re not in this field anymore,” Jim Ryan said. ”
That said, it doesn’t mean Sony will never launch a new handheld console device in the future. The company is gearing up for next year’s launch of the next-generation home console, the PS5, which has no time to deal with Nintendo, which dominates the handheld market. Given that the PSV, launched in 2011, eventually sold only 15 million units and lacked enough game support, sony must have plenty of work to do if it were to return to the handheld market. Nintendo’s Switch is the only option if you want to play the handheld game now.
