Sony Interactive Entertainment president Jim Ryan appears to confirm that Sony are not making another gaming handheld after the PlayStation Vita.

Jim Ryan said, “PlayStation Vita was brilliant in many ways, and the actual gaming experience was great, but clearly it’s a business that we’re no longer in now.”

I want to imagine a situation where it still makes sense to have a portable version of the PlayStation but with their efforts with streaming via PlayStation Now, their Remote Play feature, and the breakneck pace of innovation in mobile phone and tablet technology, the PSP and Vita just don’t make a ton of sense anymore.
