Sony’s still got the PlayStation Vita on life support, despite it ceasing to manufacture the handheld. The platform holder has released firmware update v3.71 for the system today, which fixes an exploit named Trinity currently being leveraged for homebrew. According to the modding scene, it’s still currently possible to spoof the system software in order to connect to the PlayStation Network, but that’s an issue which is likely to be plugged.
For those of you using the handheld as it was intended, you’re not going to notice any changes with this firmware update – as you’d perhaps expect. It’ll be interesting to see how long the company continues this battle with hackers – presumably it’ll have to move on eventually.
