Sony has announced that it’s wrapping up PlayStation Mobile (PSM) later this year. The platform featured games that were compatible with the PS Vita handheld gaming system as well as PlayStation certified Android devices.

No new titles will be published on PSM after July 15, and in-app purchases and purchased games will not be available after September 10. You’ll still be able to play PSM games after that, provided you activate your devices by following the instructions issued by PlayStation Support .

The move is likely due to PSM’s poor adoption across the board. Sony even pulled support for PSM on Android devices running KitKat 4.4.3 and newer last August.
