Share this Post

The PS Vita is turning into quite the handy portable games console. Even if you don't use all the features on the device (like the email app), it's still a daily companion for some of us. Now Sony is making it even better with a new firmware update.

Sony announced today that the PS Vita firmware will be updated to version 3.10 today. The latest update will bring with it a number of new features, including an increase in the app limit. The increase should be especially helpful for those who have a large memory stick.

Here's the full list of updates:

  • You can now display up to 500 applications on the home screen.
  • A Calendar application has been added for PS Vita, allowing you to set up gaming events with your friends. Sync your Google calendar to have all your events with you on your PS Vita. You can also share your favorite events by using the Messages and Email applications.
  • A new “Manage Content on Memory Card” option has been added to the Content Manager application. You can now view the data on your memory card, making it easier than ever to manage content on your PS Vita. You can now view memory usage by content type, and delete content and applications.
  • You can now send and receive voice messages using the Messages application on PS Vita. Exchange voice messages with your friends and players on PS4 and PS Vita.
  • The new PS Vita update is pretty awesome, but what about that promised PS4 update? According to Sony, it's coming soon. The update will add many of the media features that were missing at launch as well as the ability to turn off HDCP encryption for those who want to record gameplay through external capture devices. The next PS4 update might also include emulation support:

    For now, however, just look forward to being able to stuff over 100 applications onto your Vita.
