PS Vita Update 1.65 Taken Down Due To 'Technical Fault'
Latest firmware update for the PS Vita went live, only to be promptly taken down by Sony.
Published on Apr 3, 2012
The PS Vita firmware 1.65 will shortly be made available to download, after initially being available to some PS Vita owners earlier today.
Sony has taken the firmware update offline temporarily, citing an unspecified "technical fault" as its reason for doing so. The official statement from Sony is below:
"PS Vita system software update 1.65 has been taken down temporarily due to a technical fault. For any customers who may have already downloaded the firmware, they can continue as normal. We will notify you once the latest system software update is available to download again."
There's no estimated timescale for when the firmware will be made available, so for now you'll just have to sit tight until we hear more from Sony.
The PS Vita 1.65 firmware update is set to enable users to turn off notifications from friends signing in or receiving messages if they wish, while notifications will now appear for 5 seconds instead of 3.
An additional 10 minute option is added to the power save function, tweaks to the LiveArea update arrow and the option for caps lock have all been added with the latest firmware update.
Check out the EU PS blog post for more details, where some commenters are even claiming the PS Minis are now functioning on Vitas too.
