Downloading! Already have PS+, so it's straight to free games. I have had a real urge to play Gravity rush again, but didn't wanna buy it. Now i don't have to!

The download was quick and installed rather fast.

Edit: While the web browser is better and no checker box when scrolling up and down is a plus. I did see some improvement will the load time.

There are a good amount of new features in this update.

we can now transfert contents on the PC/Ps3 directly by WiFi instead of using the cable, thats a nice update so far.

I did the update, but PS+ isn't on the store for me at the moment. I'm guessing that's coming tomorrow?
JoGam  +   1100d ago
yes once the store updates
Zodiac  +   1100d ago
Yeah, i just found it is coming tomorrow =(

Same here, the store usually doesnt update until the evening where I live so we'll see i guess, also the email app refuses to connecrt tovmy hotmail account. But the browser is a vast improvement, im actually posting from my vita now.

The browser is so fast!

And i love the email app.

Gravity Rush is a game I thought about buying but didn't. I'm glad I didn't. I already have Uncharted but not most of the free games.

Anyone know if the network is under maintainance. I downloaded the update fine, but I can't get online, updated via setting online, youtube, WWW, email anything...it's erroring on me.

Loving my PS+ for thew PS3 and now it's for the Vita as well? Can't beat that!

The email app is cool, but I'll stick to my Android when I'm not at home.
Snookies12  +   1100d ago
Anyone else having a problem with the Email app? I can't get it to register my Gmail or my Hotmail... :\
ftwrthtx  +   1100d ago
It worked for my Gmail once I used the correct password.
Snookies12  +   1100d ago
I'm sure I have the right email and password... Not sure what to put for the box above that. I entered my name and it still wouldn't let it go through.
rpd123  +   1100d ago
It won't work for my hotmail either. What am I supposed to put for incoming mail settings and outgoing mail settings?

It's the same as when you connect it to your cellphone.

Just did it myself, change protocols from imap to pop.
Hotmail Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - pop3.live.com
then type your address and password
Hotmail Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) - smtp.live.com
type your address and password.

TA-DA! Quite smooth, doesn't display all content it finds in emails but works well enough.

violents  +   1099d ago

Didn't we already have group messaging before?
knifefight  +   1100d ago
I can't even keep track anymore.

Downloading later today, either way.
Sephiroushin  +   1100d ago
Yes, but typing using the buttons is now allowed ...
Godchild1020  +   1100d ago
Thank You! I didn't know you do that. I find it easier to use the buttons to type than my fingers. I make a lot of mistakes. I know it takes longer, but better for me. +1 to you.

shikamaroooo  +   1100d ago
Yes. I'm looking forward to a full list of changes.
Studio-YaMi  +   1100d ago
Downloading :D !
Omar91  +   1100d ago
yea not sure how to set up the email app. I dont even see a change in the browser besides it being super fast now. looks the same to me. and ps+ isnt on my ps store :(
rezzah  +   1100d ago

tndtloveu  +   1100d ago
Downloading! Cant wait to find out the new features!!!
Kingthrash360  +   1100d ago
At work feeling like tebow, missing out on the fun. Can't wait to go home!
Neo Nugget  +   1100d ago
So how exactly does the cloud save thing work? I don't see any specific location like there is on the pS3.
Neo Nugget  +   1100d ago
Aha! It's done through content manager.
Smokingunz  +   1100d ago
I heard the browser on the vita is suppose to have flash now! Aka. Html. Is this true?
Godchild1020  +   1100d ago
Its HTML5, but it still can't play videos from the browser.
oONinjavitiSOo  +   1100d ago
You can however download certain......videos from certain....sites straight to your video app. Enjoy.
tubers  +   1100d ago
F***!.. Thanks for the info! That's all I need to know.

Time to hold off again for me.
nikrel  +   1100d ago
the browser is nice and quick now, love it
b-dash  +   1100d ago
Bluetooth lag has been solved by it.
It's a great update.
strigoi814  +   1100d ago
Downloaded the update and yeah i noticed the browsers speed..pretty nice update..i have a good feeling this is the start of psvita's involvement on gaikai's service..
Godchild1020  +   1100d ago
I think its more of an indication of what we will see from the Web browser on the next Playstation. And showing that Sony is still supporting the Vita, no matters what people say and what the sales are.
r21  +   1100d ago
Has anyone tested the 1080p video playback? I still find it strange that the vita is capable of 1080p, what with its 960X544 screen :O
tubers  +   1100d ago
AFAIK it gets downscaled.
supremacy  +   1100d ago
my question is...
Why o why isnt there adobe flash and HTML 5 support? What is it about this device that it cannot support such a standard feature? I mean the ps3 browser supports some fashion of flash and everyone knows how bad the memory is on the ps3.

If Sony is to compete against the more versitle portable devices on the market in phones and tablets then this is a must.

I am sorry to say this, but we dont live in the stone age. Sony, i want flash and HTML 5 support asap, i could care less about anything else really. But i also wouldnt mind the ability copy,cut and paste, voice messaging and last but not least. Not having to worry about a grey loading screen whenever i switch from an app to check another app specially those pertaining to the psn like messaging and friendslist. Is time i stay online at all times without disconnect.
