If your PlayStation Vita is nearby, you may not want to let it see what’s coming next.

The same day that Sony executive Andrew House admitted PS4 exclusives in 2015 were going to be slim, he referred to the Vita as a “legacy platform” as sales for the system remain dismal in the western part of the world.

Shortly after, Sony released a clarifying statement explaining House’s comments to only translate to older versions and models of the system.

“What Andy mentioned as ‘legacy platform’ was part of the write-off for PS Vita components for the first generation of the PS Vita, which is no longer available in the market,” as told by a Sony representative to GamesBeat. “And he did not directly mean the current PS Vita and PS TV models, which are available in the market. Our portable business will be continued, and many users are now enjoying PlayStation 4 remote play features as well as original PS Vita game titles on PS Vita and PS TV.”

What do you think this means for the future of the system, and more imminently, at E3?
