Is it possible that Sony will discontinue the PlayStation Vita in North America?

Since UK retailers are going to stop selling the PlayStation Vita next week, does that mean Sony is leaving the UK market forever? Is it possible that this move will spread to North America and Sony will stop selling the Vita here too? The only place where the Vita seems to have picked up in its sales is in Japan, so what if Sony decides to discontinue selling the Vita everywhere except Japan?

No. That would be suicidal for present and future sales of ANY Sony system.

isnt the uk stores stopping selling the vita like a grocery store chain? The vita from what I can tell is doing fine at least locally. And sony isnt discontinuing anything its a store not carrying it.. Anyway thats why they have specialized stores like game stop which carry it so buy it there?

Yeah that's what I thought. It's not like Sony stopped shipping Vita's to the UK....or did they???!?!?!? Conspiracy afoot.

Wow....UK Stores =/= Sainsbury's

Sainsbury is a very expensive grocery chain.....not known for games (in fact I've never seen a Sainsbury's with even a slightly decent selection beyond a handful of shovelware)

Sony is almost certainly going to try a price drop before discontuation.

The 3DS and PSVita are both outstanding systems. Wally the Equality Weasel says so.
