The PlayStation Vita has only been out in Japan for a day, and it's had its very first (though far from the last) firmware release. That's right, Sony, start as you mean to go on. 

In all fairness, this particular update has been released to address several launch day problems that users have experienced, including system freezes and unresponsive touchscreens. Sony has apologized to first-day buyers for these problems, and hopes the firmware will fix it.

Fingers crossed that the update is successful. Still, it's a little weird that Sony had new firmware for these issues so quickly, almost as if it knew of the problems when the Vita shipped and had fixes ready in case too many people complained.

Nah, what am I thinking -- no game company has ever knowingly shipped a broken product.
