PlayStation Vita has received a brand new firmware update today. This update was released after a long time which had led fans to speculate that it might be related to an unreleased exploit for the PS Vita.
Time to update my Vita, thanks for the heads up!
Its probably just to block custom firmware.
I'm sure it's just another attempt to block piracy / custom firmware but I don't really care at this point. My PS+ Vita library is so big that I don't have any interest in modifying the system.
Sony needs to support this gem of a console. You have soo much upside.
Not really any upside for Sony themselves, realistically speaking. Regardless of what they do at this point, there’s not nearly enough interest in the handheld to justify strong support. They tried pretty hard in the beginning and people didn’t bite, so here we are now. Kind of glad, honestly. I liked Vita a lot, but the amount of support that PS4 has recieved, thanks to zero first party emphasis on Vita, has been incredible.
They most certainly didn't try very hard when it first released, not when compared to some of the gems of games which appeared on the PSP. They can't even offer much support for the games that work through remote play that need L2/R2 buttons (prominence poker as an example). Still a damn fine (under utilised) handheld though.
It would have gotten better support had they ditched the rear touch panel for L2/R2 buttons or at least the ability to sync a DS3 or DS4 to it.
I wish they'd do something about the price of memory cards because I have a decent digital library due to ps plus.
I stopped playing Vita due the reason of it not working properly. It wont load games, it crashes all the time or freezes usually in loading. I have tried everything that can be done but nothing works. It started doing this after one big update and I hoped they would fix this already.
My launch unit has been fine to this day. It even survived an accidental drowning.
