At E3 2014, Sony talked about almost everything "Playstation 4, Playstation Now, Playstation TV, Exclusive games, third party titles" and lot more, but nothing was said regarding what's their future plan for Playstation Vita, just a word here or there on it. According to Jim Ryan, President and CEO of SCE Europe, due to shortage of stage time and Playstation Vita didn't figure in the list of important things to be talked about on stage at E3 2014.
In an interview to GameReactor, Jim said:
"You get an hour and half on the stage, and you've got to work out what's really important to talk about. And obviously PS4, and we also wanted to talk about the innovation stories of PlayStation Now, PlayStation TV and Morpheus. So that stuff was all top of the list."
"You know we spoke about it in the context of PSTV [earlier in the interview], but let's not forget that remote play is here and now with PS Vita and it is incredibly well received. The statistics about the way people use remote play with their PS Vita are very strong, and when people do it, it's not like they try it once and then put the Vita away... they go back and they use remote play on their Vita again and again and again."
It seems like Sony has indeed kept Playstation Vita in back burner, there's no major first party title like Uncharted: Golden Abyss incoming, neither anything from third-party developers.
