Sony held an Investor Day today in Japan and discussed their business model and various strategies for FY2015.

Believe it or not, the handheld console was mentioned just twice throughout the entire 87 page presentation. Ironically, both mentions were concerned with writing it off.
Sony’s struggling handheld console has made less and less of an impact in the company’s presentations as the years have rolled on and this almost complete omission seems to suggest that the company could be done pushing the handheld altogether.
