What we learned from PlayStation Vita | Podcast

Our weekly news discussion show is back, now with a new monthly section based on 10 Years Ago This Month

In our first weekly episode of 2021, the GamesIndustry.biz team discuss the biggest news of the past week - and slightly further back.

To start, Matt, Brendan, Rebekah, James and Chris unpack the implications and build-up to Nintendo's acquisition of Next Level Games, the team behind Switch hit Luigi's Mansion 3.

Then, in the first instalment of a new monthly discussion, we expand on the most recent 10 Years Ago This Month column to look at how things have changed in the past decade.

This month, we look at the rise and fall of the last dedicated games handhelds: PlayStation Vita and 3DS, two devices launched as smartphone gaming began to take off. Both Sony and Nintendo handled this difficult situation differently, but what did the industry learn from their strategies?
