Report: Sony Yanks Two PSP Games Because of Vita Exploit

Sony has taken two PSP games off the PlayStation Store, after it was revealed that the games might contain an exploit that allowed hackers access to the handheld's core functionality.

Naturally Sony is working on a patch to fix the exploit which means you can enjoy the usual pain-in-the-ass update process familiar to anyone that owns a current generation Sony device…
