Do you guys think the Vita is probably gonna be Sony's last handheld?

Why would it be, when it's been a resound success on all fronts? The best hardware, the best games, no gimmicks and the most sales.
PC + 3DS. Every single time.

No, the vita is not going to be the last.

Honestly I kind of hope it is. I love the PSP and Vita but Sony has half-assed support for both systems. What's the point in developing a handheld if you aren't going to give it proper support and marketing?

I hate to say it but Sony actually works best when they focus on one thing at a time (like the PS1 and then the PS2). When they try to support multiple systems (like PS2, PS3, and PSP in 2006/2007 or the PS3, PS4, and Vita currently) someone always gets the short end of the stick.

Unless Sony is willing to create new first/second-party studios for their handheld division and really crank up their portable IP than it's just wasted effort. All those studios making PSP/Vita software would probably be better used making cheap (as it $15-20) PSN titles for the PS3/PS4 instead sadly.

And furthermore, Sony is likely to not release any more systems at all. They haven;t turned a profit in over a DECADE, people.
