It updated fine, but is the PSN down? I can't access anything online at all.

Update: The error I had was because I needed to restart my home router. Odd but I figured it out.

No html 5 video support.

Sad baby T.T

I personally think Sony are going to be integrating html 5 video support soon as the Vita's browser is clearly now as powerful as or on-par with most android mobile browsers after installing the v2.00 firmware.

I can't think up any reason why they wouldn't... I mean, like with any trust-worthy & reliable company, they always want to improve their loyal consumer's experience with their product.

Of course.. in doing so, porn will be available to watch on the PS Vita. -_- which actually isn't a bad thing cause there'd be a ton of articles raging on about it, thus bringing more attention to the Vita :D

sony need to add arabic language , a lots of arabs use their products , its useless using facebook / browser / twitter / friends messages ..etc

it is reallt unfair to ignore the arabs language , we just want to use it in these apps , we dont want it in games , so i dont think its hard , it will be worth their time ...

sorry for puting this as a replay , using the vita browser so i cant copy it

i dunno why people disagree , the update included turki language so why not add arabic , why being selfish , imagine if english isnt supported in vita , you wouldnt demand for it ?.. if they made it one time they will be able to add it to all systems ...

I think it's a strategy for Sony not to eat into its own market of portable PMPs that does internet better and their tablet line-up.

Too bad >.<

I believe it would be better for them to forget the tablet and pmp market and focus on the VITA. It's pretty much a decent tablet/pmp hardware wise.

I gotta say, transferring music to my Vita over Wi-Fi felt incredibly sexy. And although I rarely use my Email, the new app is as sleek and polished as can be so I may just be putting it to good use. All around, 2.0 is an incredible update.

Edit: Also, it's not like I ever take my Vita out of my house, but the improved Near is still really nice.

A very awesome update, love that i can transfer data via wi fi now and multitask :D Only downside is that I still cannot make my own playlists on my vita :L

This update is sweet! +members get so much in addition to games there is no way for me to resist anymore. Here I come Gravity rush, Uncharted ga and auto updates/trophy sync/cloud saves!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You've got to hand it to Sony when it comes to updating the functionality of their products. And PSN+ is just getting better and better for less than the price of one full game a year. I was planning on grabbing Gravity Rush but I was holding off for a sale or something and this is perfect. I'm just playing through Uncharted Golden Abyss at the moment (and loving it) but now I can trade my copy in towards something else. Maybe an early Christmas present, for me!
