If you’re a fan of handheld gaming consoles, you’ll be excited to hear that Sony may be working on a new device. According to insider Tom Henderson, who is known for his reliable leaks, Sony is allegedly developing a new handheld console. And the best part? This is not an April Fool’s joke, unlike some of the other rumors that have been circulating lately.
THE LAST TIME SONY ENTERED THE MOBILE GAMING MARKET
It’s been over a decade since Sony released its last portable gaming device, the PlayStation Vita, back in December 2011. Despite being discontinued, the device sold more than 15.7 million units worldwide as of February 2017. The Vita featured a large library of games, including popular titles such as Killzone: Mercenary, Persona 4 Golden, Uncharted: Golden Abyss, and Mortal Kombat.
SONY’S RETURN TO THE HANDHELD MARKET
While there is no official word from Sony yet, the rumors of a new handheld console have fans eagerly anticipating what the future holds. It’s not surprising that Sony may be looking to re-enter the mobile gaming market, especially since the industry has seen significant growth in recent years.
As smartphones continue to dominate the mobile gaming industry, Sony will have to bring something unique and exciting to the table to stand out. It remains to be seen what features the new handheld console will have, but fans are already speculating about potential improvements over the PlayStation Vita, such as a larger screen, better graphics, and improved battery life.
