PS Vita firmware 1.65 pulled for being broken

It's not just videogames that get shipped in a broken state. Sony's latest PS Vita firmware update -- we're already up to 1.65 -- has had to be yanked from circulation after causing bugs on systems. The update was set to bring "minor enhancements," but brought a bit more than that. 

One Destructoid reader, Frank, downloaded the update and found that it broke his Vita's ability to connect to the PS3 for ad hoc parties. The lobbies all went quiet as regular Vita users found themselves locked out of the feature. 

"PS Vita system software update 1.65 has been taken down temporarily due to a technical fault," explained Sony on its blog. "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."

As a fellow who regularly mocks the frequency and uselessness of Sony's firmware updates, I feel quite smug. If you're going to waste a user's time with these pointless, frivolous attempts at glorified DRM, you should at least make sure they work.
