Sony Removes the Vita's Buggy Facebook App

Sony has removed the Facebook app for the PlayStation Vita, after receiving several complaints from users that the app crashed at its startup. If you're not seeing the Facebook app in the store, this is why.

""We are currently looking into this to restore it to normal operational status," Sony told Game Informer in a statement. "We will announce further details when ready." That means no timeframe.

A community manager in Europe said the problem concerns "a Facebook specific issue (on their side) and we are working with them to resolve."

Eurogamer reported that those using the app were given an error code at startup. Their only option was to close the app at that point.
