Sony President Praises Switch, Says Vita Successor Not Likely

Sony Interactive Entertainment America boss Shawn Layden thinks it's absolutely fine for PlayStation 4 owners to have a Switch in their household, and that there is no competition between the two consoles. Layden wasn't throwing shade, mind you, but rather drawing upon Nintendo's ability to serve as a complementary console for its past three generations. Layden goes on to say that numbers wise, you'll see that many PlayStation households also house a Nintendo system.

The conversation then "switched" to the PS Vita and Layden was asked if fans were going to see a PS Vita follow-up anytime in the near future. If you're someone in America who has been eager for news like this, you're in the minority and should prepare yourself for the disappointment you're about to read:

“To be honest, the Vita just didn’t reach critical mass in the U.S. or Western Europe. I don’t know if it was that it was more technology people had to carry around, or more things to charge, or whether their phone or tablet were taking care of that. But once the content slowed in that pipeline, it became hard to keep the Vita as a going concern.”
