Update: Sony has now said that is has not apologised for any Vita technical problems and has denied there are any widespread issues with the machine.
A software update and accompanying apology have gone some way to soothing anger over issues plaguing the Vita’s Japanese launch.
Sony was quick to respond with an apologetic statement and a new firmware update, but this does not seem to have completely satisfied users. According to GameInformer, users have hit a strange blip requiring the set up of a dummy PSN ID so they can download the title update and initialise the system. A video demonstrating this problem is also embedded below.
