    Let’s face it Sony never really supported the vita, I remember getting one like a year after launch and it was already basically dead with very little games and really overpriced accessories, the original PSP was amazing thought, the vita left a sour taste in my mouth in regards to Sony.

    Nintendo have put them to shame with the switch, it’s really the only portable console now.

      I had so much fun running homebrew on my PSP. That ecosystem is something that could never happen on purpose. You had a massive electronics company with some good 1st party IP and adoption from 3rd party vendors building software for a not-too-unpopular architecture (MIPS). Then it turned out this WiFi-enabled device had fairly poor security, which meant hardware that was already in the hands of tons of people gained a second software delivery channel.

      People have tried many times to capture that with purpose-built open devices. But they don't have the money behind them to reach critical mass.
