Stand by, Vita owners – Sony have released a brand new firmware for the console, pushing it up to version 1.81. It’s not much of an update though, with Sony claiming the only difference is improved software stability.
Despite the minor change log, the update is mandatory should you use to use the Vita’s online functions, so you might as well download it now.
Chances are it also blocks the latest round of homebrew hacks, namely one using Monster Hunter to allow the Vita to garner some unofficial playback ability.
As ever, if you find it does anything else, let us know.
