PlayStation Vita owners will have until March 31st, 2021, to request a warranty extension from Sony.
The news was announced on Sony’s official Twitter account, Ask PlayStation JP, and they have said that after the given date they will not accept new registrations. The current warranty covers the original console, battery, USB cable, and electric charger. If your memory card, SIM card, and/or internal earphone set happens to break, the warranty will not cover it.

It is sad to see a console that marked our childhood go, but it was launched back in December 2011, and technology is a million steps ahead now. Sony has begun to gradually push the console out by removing pre-PS4 games from the PS Store, and certain problems with the Store have appeared in December 2020.
