The PlayStation Vita was Sony's second handheld console, and the successor to the immensely-successful PlayStation Portable.

While it enjoyed success in Japan, it was overall a commercial failure, with one contributing factor being the high price of its proprietary detachable storage (for instance, a 32GB Memory Card cost $120, half the price of the system itself).
