Gio Corsi poses with his favourite device

The PlayStation Vita has already been dead for quite some time, but this feels like the last nail in the coffin. Gio Corsi, a vocal and loyal supporter of Sony's second handheld device, has left the company with last week being his final one.

Taking to Twitter, Gio said: "A hearty thank you to all the great devs, pubs, partners, friends & fans who made my time at PlayStation so memorable -- so many cool moments. From all the titles, to all the shows, as I said, it was a hell of a ride! Thanks for it all and long live the Vita!" The man spent six and a half years with Sony, nearly five of which were spent in the role of Senior Director of Third Party Production and Developer Relations. In April 2018, he then became head of Global Second Party Games.

You may remember him from various appearances at PlayStation Experience over the years where he made a point of announcing PS Vita ports of various games. This, of course, follows in the wake of former Sony Worldwide Studios Shawn Layden's departure. Are you sad to see another PlayStation employee go? Let us know in the comments below.
