Norway’s largest multimedia retailer, SpaceWorld, has issued a warning on their Facebook page. The cautionary notice is for customers who have somehow got early access to the Vita’s third person shooter, Unit 13.
The game isn’t due for release for another couple of weeks (March 7th) but the warning was posted this morning. It’s unclear whether they mean the full game or the PSN Store demo which is currently available.
It is also unclear just how permanent this “stopping” might be. Is this just a reappearance of the standby bug we saw before the firmware updates (which seem to have fixed that issue for us) or is it something more serious?
Here’s the translation, kindly provided by TSA member GhostViper:
DO NOT START UNIT 13 to PS VITA. BUG, BUG, BUG
We just got notification from the supplier of the PS VITA in Norway that one should not start Unit 13 game on their PS VITA as this stops the machine.
Message: “If you have received Unit 13 to the PS Vita, do not start it. We have discovered two cases of bugs that stop the machine. Therefore, do not start Unit 13 until we have received the order to the problem.

Update: it’s the full game. It locks up your Vita (it won’t install) until you do a database rebuild. Alex (see comment below) had this problem and it deleted his Virtua Tennis 4 save game and install.
