PS Vita 1.65 Firmware Update postponed

You waited for months for a new Vita update? You were expecting more PSP titles, a decent browser, PS1 compatibility, or other cool stuff? Well, how about caps lock support in the keyboard? It’s not enough for you? Come on, caps lock on a keyboard is pretty cool man… Ok then, how about an update that breaks adhoc game on PSP titles?

What, still not happy? Well, how about we cancel the update so that you really feel like you wasted time updating?

From Playstation’s blog:

Update 4/3/2012: We identified a symptom that users can not play adhoc play in PSP titles if they download the system software, so we have taken down the system software temporarily. The system software will be available to download again soon.

    Translation: We rushed out this patch to counter the hackers! It’s not our fault that we couldn’t fully test out the patches fully first!

    lol that’s quite funny. I sincerely hope they take forever so I don’t have to feel bad about not updating while I await another exploit.

    But seriously, all they could add into such a large update was CAPSLOCK? Seriously? That’s all they did since the last update is do that?

    Sony, take some advice. Stop going after hackers and start firing some of your workers. Hackers are taking way less from you, if anything at all, than these people that work for you making these updates.

    I got the new update and managed to get it installed, and sadly all I got was a more buggy Vita for updating. I guess I’m pretty dumb to expect improvements :(

    Exactly as to what you posted, that’s me in a nutshell. I’m still shaking my head at this incident.

    Their developper was able to enable caps lock but only when ad hoc is fucked up.

    That’s the PoC of Sony’s dev :) Hahaha what a dumbass.

    SONY KNOWS WHAT CONSUMERS WANT!!!!! Couldn’t do that before uh ;)

    Don’t blame Sony, you don’t know how hard it is to run updates when you don’t know if your implementing features or removing them.

    We all know that the real reason why Sony isn’t adding major features… oh I don’t know, such as Flash and HTML5, is simply because they’re afraid that their precious new handheld will get hacked and Custom Firmware installed. Ipod touch is a fine example of a more closed system that has better browser support than the PS Vita.

    Sony sure does know how to compete… not.

            So how’s your mum?

    Agree with Iono. Some people are just idiots. Why they don’t buy Apple toys if they feel so fukced up buying Sony products? What’s the problem? Everyone knows that early adopters suffer from such minor problems, if you can’t live with that then wait for a year or so.

    I can see the Vita turning out to be a failure due to lack of games, apps & their expensive proprietary stuffs.
    ..and now Sony is making me laugh with their buggy firmware update. LOL SONY XD
