PS Vita Physical Games

Earlier this week, it was reported that Sony will stop manufacturing PlayStation Vita game cartridges in the future. However, a new story originating from Japanese site GameSpark indicates that not all territories will be following suit -- SIE Japan will continue to produce physical games for the handheld.

Translated by Kotaku is a short interview with a spokesperson from the company.

Q. What will happen with the [PS Vita] support within the country?

A.Manufacture of PS Vita [game] cards for within Japan will continue.

Q. Will manufacturing of the PS Vita hardware continue?

A. Since in Japan we want everyone who keeps playing to enjoy an extensive game line-up, at this present point we plan to continue our marketing activity.

It's unclear exactly what is meant by the second answer, but the overall message seems to be that it'll be business as usual for the Vita in Japan.
