As with the PS2 and the ongoing success of the PlayStation 3, Sony says it wants to support the PS Vita for a full decade.
"We’re in year one, so we’ll be supporting it for some time," SCEA Vice President of Hardware Marketing John Koller told IGN.
"But yeah, it does have its own 10-year life cycle. All of our platforms do… it’s a marathon, not a sprint. We expect long-term success from all our platforms."
Supporting a console for 10 years doesn't mean it isn't going to be superseded before then. Sony continued to support the PS2 long after the PS3 was released to make it a 10 year platform.
