After news of Vitas overheating while charging hit the web today, Sony accused users of exposing the charging ports to liquids, causing the problem. Now Sony has come clean, revealing the true cause of the problem:

“SCE confirmed that a small number (23 in Japan) of PS Vita’s and USB cable’s multi-use port were damaged during recharging, and have reported them to NITE (National Institute of technology and Evaluation). The cases were caused by partial short-circuit on the multi-use port of PS Vita and USB cable due to small particles or liquid attached to it. We believe this is not product oriented issue. The short-circuit damaged the multi-use port, resulting in being unable to boot the system.”
