It’s 7am in Japan, and only a few gamers have managed to get their hands on the Vita, but they’ve already been greeted by a new firmware update – v1.50.

It’s not known yet exactly what the firmware update does, but the update is not optional, with Vita users having to update the handheld to use all the features and play all the games. If you have a Vita, you can update over Wi-Fi, PS3, PC or 3G with a 3G capable Vita. More information is available on the official firmware update page.
