Sony is hammering out software stability updates faster than frightening balance sheets at the minute. Not content with preparing patch v1.52 for the PlayStation 4, the company has also released firmware update v3.01 for the PlayStation Vita. What does it do? Well, nothing – but we can’t say that we're particularly surprised.

The patch is ready and available to download now. There’s no changelog, and we can’t really find anything different, so we suppose that it’s working quietly behind-the-scenes. There had been some rumours regarding some fresh handheld hacks, meaning that this is probably a response to those. Have you downloaded the update yet? Point your peepers at the progress bar in the comments section below.
