Sony has stated that they already have fixed a “network issue” that users were experiencing after updating their PS Vita to Firmware 3.57 which prevented them from accessing the PlayStation Store.


The issue arose after multiple people reported not being able to access PSN after updating their system with the latest firmware 3.57 update. The Vita would just be stuck with the “Please wait…” message on their systems. Also, the battery seemed to be draining a lot faster after the update, even when it’s set to standby mode.

Lacking any updates from Sony, this prompted some users to come up with some simple fixes for the Vita 3.57 update problems that were able to help fix the PSN connection issue but not the Battery draining problem.

Sony has sent a statement to Kotaku saying that the PSN connection problems were not related to the 3.57 update:

“The network issue that users experienced on their PS Vita was not due to system software 3.57 and is now resolved. Thank you for your patience.”

However, Sony did not elaborate anymore about the PSN connection issue with regards to what was exactly the problem to begin with. And as for the batteries draining too fast after the 3.57 update, they suggested contacting customer service.

“If users face other issues unrelated to accessing the network, we recommend contacting customer support for assistance.”

We’ll just gonna have to wait and see if Sony will release a fix via firmware update to address the battery issue by this stupid 3.57 firmware update.
