Sony Denies PS Vita Overheating Issues

Some new reports have been coming out of Japan which claim that a design flaw is causing some PS Vita's to overheat, more details inside......

Sony has recently denied reports that over 31 PS Vita's have been overheating, reports claim that the overheating is usually around the power connector. The overheating has been pinned on a design flaw however according to Sony's Japanese public relations department, the problem occurs when the pin is wet or covered in electrically conductive dirt. This causes the system to draw more power than would normally be the case, resulting in increased heat that can scorch - but not injure - the user's hand.
