Sony drops new PS Vita firmware update, v.1.66

Sony has issued its second PS Vita update in the past three days. The new update takes the PS Vita to firmware version 1.66 after just issuing version 1.65 just Monday. The 1.65 update was live for just a short while before Sony pulled it because it caused an error in adhoc wireless multiplayer on PSP games.

The quickly patched and released v1.66 update has reportedly fixed the adhoc wireless issue and brought the minor improvements that were issued in v. 1.65. These include a new notification alert that allows users to quickly toggle alerts on or off. An option to power down after 10 minutes, caps lock for the virtual keyboard (making code entries easier) and an arrow icon pointing to new activities in the LiveArea have also been added.

Sony has had a reputation for making great hardware, but struggling with its software. The PS Vita launch in Japan was marred slightly by freezing and hanging issues, which were subsequently patched. The PS Vita Facebook app was launched and the pulled after bugs were fixed before being re-released. [via Eurogamer]
