Sony has removed the Vita Facebook application from both US and Europe PSN Stores following reports from owners of error codes when trying to access the social network on the device.
Vita owners have been unable to log in to Facebook for much of the day, with error code NP-13144-3 appearing after apparent successful log-ins that subsequentlyforces the application to close.
The app was originally pulled from the Europe store only, but later was removed from the US store when reports turned out to be more widespread.
Sony claimed the problem was on Facebook's end, and that they're working with the service to try to resolve it.
"We are currently looking into this to restore [the app] to normal operational status," a Sony rep explained while speaking withJoystiq."We will announce further details when ready."
