Just bought the 3G vita a few days ago, I noticed yesterday while playing Motor Storm RC, left movement was limited and when trying to turn left would crash into walls, the right movement was perfectly fine. I then powered off the Vita and it wouldn't power off, it seemed to be in a hung state, so I held down the power button until it turned off, when turning back on it went into what I think was safe mode, I select the Restart option.
I then started to play again, no issues left and right movement was fine again making me think it might be a firmware issue. Today I was playing Fifa Football, after some time I noticed the player kept running to the right without stick input, to stop him, you had to give it some left input, but once you let go just kept going right as if I was pushing the analogue stick hard right. The best way to tell was to go to the Fifa Arena where it’s just free play and you can see it happen easily.
I powered off the Vita and powered it back on immediately and the problem went away, it was work perfectly fine again, once again leading me to believe it is a firmware issue. Has anyone noticed similar issues?

I noticed this on my left stick as well on the first day I had it. In Super Stardust, my ship was flying to the right with no input from me. Then I ran up the Unit 13 Demo and the avatar was walking to the right as well. I shutdown and restarted the vita and it went away. I suspect there is some auto-calibration of the analogue sticks that goes on when you power on the Vita. It has happened to me once more since that initial time but not for a while.

Hi I've got the same problem and I've only had mine for 2 days and i noticed it when I was playing blazblue.
So have you sent yours back yet?

I have also on occasion had movement bugs in Uncharted... where Drake wants to keep moving and I have to 'fight' it..
