Sony has still not acknowledged widescale problems

Sony has released a new update for its just released PlayStation Vita. This is the second update that Sony has issued since the company began shipping the handheld gaming station on December 17. Sony has denied that the updates were necessary because of allegedly widespread problems.

The first update, distributed on December 19, just 2 days after the handheld became available, fixed touchscreen problems, software bugs and system freezes, along with poor performance. This new release, 1.51, mostly fixes problems with the game NEXT Dynasty Warriors.

The company sold over 320,000 units of the long awaited console in the first two days after it hit the Japanese market. Sony provided details on its release plans for the US late last week. Launch day in the US will be February 22. The console, when equipped with Wi-Fi, will cost $250 and ship with 25 games. However,
early pre-order Vitas and some first-party game titles will be available as early as February 15. [via Impress]
