PSA: PS Vita Firmware 2.01 Goes Live

Last week, it was reported that Sony was ironing out bugs found in the 2.00 update for PS Vita. Notably, the PS Plus driven cloud saving functionality wasn’t working properly. As promised, Sony’s since released a fix — in the form of firmware 2.01. (PS Vita, Sony)

Wait what was the bug here? I uploaded my saves for Gravity Rush and Uncharted to the cloud because I'm pretty sure deleting the games deletes the saves too. Are they lost?

I don't think what I was experiencing was a bug but it was frustrating when I had to download my PSASBR save from the cloud and it took about 20 minutes until it randomly registered with the game. Perhaps it's just a speed/loading issue or something of the sort.

It was a bug with the auto uploading feature.

Does this fix the PlayStation All-Stars "Pre-Order Costumes on Vita" deal?
boybato  +   941d ago
probably like little big planet they need to patch the game itself. ;)

god damn it. i hate updating this thing. why cant it be yearly updates, not monthly updates.
KangarooSam  +   941d ago
This is one of the only updates so far that's only fixed things. They're usually mixed with new and cool features such as PSone compatibility, cross-controller support, Playstation Plus, etc. So I say keep 'em coming Sony! :)

Cross controller support? Do u mean the ability to use a dual shock for 2 players?
KangarooSam  +   941d ago
It allows you to use your Vita as a controller for PS3 games. Apparently UMvC3 supports it. And I know for a fact they should be releasing a patch for LBP Vita this month allowing people to use it as a controller for LBP2.

i love updates, monthly updates are great, keeps my vita new.

yes you so hate your anti virus and your windows OS too because they update almost every few days or few weeks. how about waiting for a year then have your stuffs updated and have your system vulnerable to attacks throughout the year. man it just take 10mins or so to do it. and most of the time it bring you features that you do not get out of the box. whats the fuss? 10mins is not going to take your life away dude.

Hopefully the next update will speed up deleting of games which takes forever, and making links go to the right app (YouTube, Twitter, etc) rather than the browser, which is just dumb.
extermin8or  +   941d ago
deleting of games is due to the read write speed of the memory sticks, that can only be sped up through them manufacturing them to be slightly faster which will probably happen as time goes on.

It's not related to this update, but is anyone else having trouble downloading games? I've finally taken the plunge and signed up to PS+. I just couldn't resist in the end. When my Vita goes into sleep mode (by itself) it pauses the downloads... sometimes it gives me an error message. I know it pauses it when you put it to sleep yourself but it should carry on downloading when it puts itself into sleep mode.

Do you have a ps3? That's the way I did it, I downloaded the ps plus games on ps3 and transferred them to vita.
1nsomniac  +   941d ago
yea u cant do it. very strange feature to over look especially how its such a common feature.
GribbleGrunger  +   941d ago
Lots of people I've spoken to have no problem at all when it goes into sleep mode, so I'm hoping this gets fixed in a firmware update. I'm currently downloading them onto my PS3 and transferring them over to the Vita ... It's actually quicker.

I hope they patch the option to store your game saves seperate from the game data.

When are my auto-updates coming? I think I was promised auto-updates.........
KUV1977  +   940d ago
Since the last firmware update I often find the screen saying that the update for xyz has been downloaded. I still have to install them then, but the download happens automatically for PSN+ users.

Question to owners only, No trolling here. How does the Remote play work on it ? I have a psp and found it was lacking.

I had mine a week and returned it to amazon. dedicated Handheld gaming devices are DOA nowadays. I have no doubt that they're better than iPhones etc but they're normally meant to kill a few mins and I just didn't find my vita getting any use after a few hours the novelty wore off.

Just my opiniOn

i guess the the of games available wasn't to your liking?

Played gravity rush, and it naturally is a long game (10 hours+).

Also with Persona 4 Golden it is enough to put in many more hours of gaming. Also looks like it may be GOTY since it hasn't received a score lower than 9 (that I have seen).
