    I feel like getting my Vita out and playing Terraria but I don't want to update my firmware. Does the cart version force you to update? Also are there any games (a list would be handy) that force you to do so?

    Thanks

    I forgot
    Some games will have updates on the cartridge itself, some don't, and some games will require a certain firmware version. However, I'm not sure if Terraria is one of those, and I don't personally know of any lists like that out there. If anyone would know, someone over at Wololo.net probably would, you could always check over there.


    EDIT: Well would you look at that, a list right at the top of their Vita forums. :lol:

    tl;dr, Terraria requires 2.61
