PlayStation Vita 1.65 Firmware Update Recalled
While we were going to report on the details of the 1.65 software update for the PlayStation Vita, we’ve just received word from Sony that the update has been pulled due to “technical fault.”
This news comes hot off the European PlayStation Blog, where Sony stated that the fixed update will be available again soon:
“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.”
As for the contents of the update, added features include a 10-minute extension on the power saving auto-sleep function that the Vita enters when no interaction with the system takes place (i.e. no button presses or screen touches).
This time-extension will help with the frustrating reality of waiting patiently to enter a multiplayer game, only to have it go to sleep on you mid-search. Additionally, a notification alert is being implemented in the settings area, allowing you to turn off notifications if you so desire.
CAPS LOCK functionality has also been added to the on-screen keyboard, so you’ll no longer have to tap the DANG shift button every time you want to “upper-case” a letter.
Finally, an arrow icon will be displayed when your Vita comes across new activities or events in LiveArea. Maybe now you’ll find friends to play with you, you lonely soul you.
