PlayStation Vita Firmware Updated To 1.66

By David Howard, Editor-in-Chief and Founder

Those with a PlayStation Vita may have already been prompted for an update, taking the firmware to version 1.65 1.66.

The update will include a few minor enhancements including:

  • A “Notification Alert” option will be added to Settings, so you can toggle alerts on or off
  • “After 10 minutes” will be added to the time options under Power Save Settings
  • An Arrow icon will now appear when PS Vita finds new activities in the LiveArea
  • Caps Lock will be supported in the On Screen Keyboard

PS minis reportedly work properly now as well. If the update is not yet available to you, it should be at some point during today.

Update from Sony Europe – “PS Vita system software update 1.65 has been taken down temporarily due to a technical fault. For any customers who may have already downloaded the firmware, they can continue as normal. We will notify you once the latest system software update is available to download again.”

Update #2 – Version 1.66 is now live and fixes the “technical difficulties” raised with 1.65.
