PlayStation Vita Abandons Support For Social App foursquare

Sony have announced that support for the popular social discovery app foursquare will be removed from the PlayStation Vita in a months time.

The official announcement reads as follows:

We’ve got some important news to share about foursquare on PlayStation®Vita.

Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. will no longer support the foursquare app for PS Vita from 1 April 2014, and it has been removed from PlayStation®Store from 12 February 2014.

You’ll still be able to use your foursquare account on other mobile devices or the foursquare website, where your account information will be stored.

We hope you’ll continue to enjoy the other social networking apps available for PS Vita.

Exact reasoning for the removal is unknown, but given the application has a reliance on “checking in” – and this in turn requiring a constant data connection – I’d suspect it’s not something a wide range of people used out-and-about anyway. Support for other social apps, such as Facebook and Twitter is unaffected. I’m so glad I paid the ridiculous premium for my 3G Vita at launch.
