PS Vita receives its final digital games as Sony shutters new submissions [update]

By Kes Eylers-Stephenson,
Our wonderful mod, Shadow Kisuragi, has pointed out that it is worth clarifying that the article is about digital games only. EastAsiaSoft will still publish Indigo 7 Quest for Love physically. There also might be a few others on the way as hidden surprises, but these are as of yet unconfirmed.

Shout out the Ultra Mission platinum, as well. The description of A Word of Thanks reads: "It has been an awesome decade with our beloved handheld. We are so grateful to have been a part of its history. Thank you, PS Vita! And thank you as well, player!"

The emotions!

Original Story:
PlayStation Vita will never receive another new game, as no more submissions will be accepted. Celebrate the Vita's send off with the console's final two new games, Russian Subway Dogs and Ultra Mission, then cry quietly to yourself in the office.

The Vita will never see another new game again. I know. We have to come to terms with this, you and I. This means that the arcade game all about stray metro dogs — Russian Subway Dogs — and top-down arcade shooter — Ultra Mission — will be the last ever new games released on the system. Though the storefront will stay open, thanks to a fair amount of outcry from fans, this is still sad news because it means that the Vita version of Bioshock and Infamous will actually never come.

Hopefully, in the future, we can put together a Top Ten list of Vita games for you lot. Until then, pour one out for the little beast.

What do you think of this sad news? Are you also trying to avoid your co-workers witnessing your devastating flow of tears? Let us know in the comments!
