Fight for the future

Polite Plea: After almost seven years and 7,000 articles, the number of stories is slowing down. Time and developers move on, but I'll always be posting, as the Vita becomes the new Dreamcast.
However, I do need a new Vita as my launch day model is starting to show its age. Please consider clicking an ad to help my new Vita fund!
Once reached, hopefully in time for Christmas, I will remove all adverts, leaving this island of Vita life an ad-free oasis!

PS Vita gets a mini firmware upgrade, PS+ minis now work

The Vita will soon (live now apparently) get a dapper little firmware upgrade, to version 1.65, offering some fairly basic functionality improvements including:

UPDATE: The firmware upgrade has been removed due to a technical issue, no word on when it will be back.

UPDATE to the UPDATE: PS Vita's firmware update is now available again (now called v1.66).
  •  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
Undocumented, but apparently the case according to some tweets, is a fix so that PlayStation+ users can now play their minis on the Vita. It also adds a percentage counter for game installation, improvements to the frequency of Near updates, and a background download option when manually selecting sleep mode.
