PS Vita Update 2.10 Coming This Evening

Don Mesa // Director, Product Planning & Platform Software Innovation, SCEA -
Coming later this evening is the next system software update for PS Vita. We’ve listened to your feedback and have included many improvements to make your PS Vita experience much more enjoyable, such as adding a new folder system that allows you to organize your games and apps. (PS Vita, Sony)

YES! Folders and saving layouts for memory cards!
Vitalogy  +   561d ago
The only "negative point" is the 10 bubbles limit per folder, still its awesome I can now reduce "home screens" and organize it better.
Apollosupreme  +   560d ago
Oh come on, that's fine. The only disappointment is the still 100 bubble limit.
FriedGoat  +   560d ago
just make sure to wash your hands after touching DarkHeroZX's Vita.
Donnieboi  +   560d ago
I don't see anything disappointing about a 10 bubble limit per folder. There are 100 spaces available for folders. So 100 x 10 = 1000 games. NOBODY can fit more than 1000 games on a 32 GB memory card even if they were nothing but small sized Mini's and PS mobile games.
himdeel  +   561d ago
Yep layout saves for cards is awesome. Now I can switch between accounts with a little less hassle. But I still need a 63 GB memory card to drop :)
Knushwood Butt  +   560d ago
Yeah, my 16GB card is full but I'm holding out for a 64GB.

64GB would hold all my music, all the games I need, and some space left over for video.
DarkHeroZX  +   561d ago
Now I can watch porn in the vita browser!!!

Keep the features coming Sony!
Snookies12  +   561d ago
Hahaha, that's what you're most excited about out of this?? XD

Took it long enough.
3DS been had em.
Snookies12  +   560d ago
Not talking about the 3DS here, this has nothing to do with the 3DS. I have one as well, but there's really no point in bringing it up. Yes the Vita should have had this a long time ago, but at least it's getting it now.
HyperBear  +   561d ago
That's a pretty significant update. Good goin' Sony!

Love the fact you can save your home-screen layout on each different memory card, also helps identify which memory card you have in your Vita (granted you own more than 1 memory card). Also the new email enhancements and added video support :D
timzone  +   561d ago
These are the type of updates that I like. Well done Sony.
despair  +   561d ago
good stuff, looking forward to it.
GreenRanger  +   561d ago
Still no copy/paste function for the browser?!
supremacy  +   561d ago
That and they should add the ability for ps3 users to see vita players online.

another thing they need to start doing is adding trophy support for ps mobile games.

Bring hulu+ and Crackle as well as Crunchyroll.

Other than these things, bigger memory cards needs to happen.
Vitalogy  +   561d ago
"they should add the ability for ps3 users to see vita players online."

I think they're not doing it because the Vita isn't like the PS3, I mean when you think you're always connected, you're not.

Every time you launch an app it will connect to psn, for example you're on your ps3 and a friend of yours turns his Vita on and you get the "online popup", then the Vita goes stand by or whatever and your frind wakes it up and go check the messages (another login) and the popup goes up again. Imagine that with lots of friends all the time, a popup notification fest :\

The PS Vita should be exactly like the ps3, always connected period, because at this point isn't like that.

It seems Sony aint playing around these days.
Rockefellow  +   561d ago
Wait... so they're adding folders, but there's still the same 100 bubble limit. That's great for any Vita owner who hates how messy the screen can get, but what about people who have already filled their Vita up? I've only got room for one or two more bubbles, and I don't even have any PSone games or Minis on it yet.
Vitalogy  +   561d ago
And it will get messy any way, just not that much, because like I said above, it has 10 bubbles limit per folder.
Snookies12  +   561d ago
Are we sure that the things inside the folder count toward that 100? It might be that the folder itself only counts as one, even with 10 things inside. Not sure though... Honestly, I've filled my 32 GB card, and haven't reached that 100 limit. Surely there are some things people don't use to bring that number down. You can always put things back on it later anyway.
Kingthrash360  +   561d ago
Thats what I was thinking....who needs all 100 bubbles? If you reach that limit then what mem card do you have and what are you saving? The vita doesn't have 100 physical games and downloaded 20 games will eat a 32 gig card...so maybe you need to clean some of thos unused bubs until they make a new limit which mayb not happen until 100+ physical games are released or a larger mem card.
Rockefellow  +   561d ago
I don't really like having to re-download everything I have, that's all. I show the system off a lot to people, and I get review codes every other week for the thing.

I've got around sixty "retail" games on there, as well as many Vita-exclusive downloadable PSN titles. It's not hard to fill it up, really.

But yes, the PS Blog clarifies that there can be a maximum of 100 bubbles, including items kept inside of folders.
born2live  +   560d ago
@kingtrash360

You can easily reach 100+ bubbles on a 32 gb card if you fill it with psone classics, minis, PS mobile and PSP games, on top of your regular Vita games...

This update is great, though. I have been wishing for a layout save on each card for months! I hated switching between my 3 cards (4, 16 and 32) just because it messed up the layout everytime.

First folder will hold Welcome park, network operator and maps. It will be called "Crap I cant delete"
Vitalogy  +   561d ago
HAHA like when you buy a new phone these days, always full of unwanted carrier crap XD
Krew_92  +   560d ago
You can always remove the bloatware on phones most of the time though. We'll never be able to delete these on the Vita though.

Hopefully you can put a folder inside another folder.

I want remoteplay.... ;'(
WalterWJR  +   561d ago
I think people got over that a while ago
profgerbik  +   561d ago
Remote play exists already. Sorry if you don't use it but I have.

...and stop expecting all this functionality out of a 7 year old device, the PS Vita was made long after the PS3. I don't get why people expect them to work together flawlessly.

Sony already said they planned on the PS Vita to work with the PS4 more. They pretty much also said they are aiming to get every PS4 game available for remote play.

Makes much more sense considering the PS4 and Vita were in development at the same times. Not the PS3 and the Vita but there is still remote play titles and features that can be used on the PS3.

Just not as many as the PS4 will have no doubt.

Tultras  +   560d ago
Yes it does exist, what I meant was to play stream the ps3 games on the vita

I expect the functionality due to 2 very important reasons;

1- The game streaming thing is already been demonstrated on almost every game on MODDED ps3's and by SONY themselves ( killzone 3 remote play demo )

2- This was one of the MOST touted and marketed feature of the vita; being able to stream games.

Now tell me, why should I believe that Sony will implement it on the ps4 when they failed to keep their promise to bring it to the ps3, so I can end up being played for a fool again?
The_Samurai_12  +   561d ago
I hope they fix the in game custom music issue. Seems like the functionality is broken when a lot of games get updated, which sucks. I refuse to play call of duty on the vita without this feature working anymore. The soundtrack for that game blows. (The game isnt that great either, but custom music made it bearable for me)
MorfiTM  +   560d ago
ok we can have 10 screens with 10 icons/folders on each one but the limit cap for games/apps is still 100 so it cuts my excitement by half.
MultiConsoleGamer  +   560d ago
Finally! Folders. Can't wait. The menu on my PSV is getting very crowded.
DarkStars  +   560d ago
Want remote play functionality in the next update after this.
DarkStars  +   560d ago
"This Evening" is taking quite a while.
profgerbik  +   560d ago
I know right.. I want to play Gaucamelee but I want to organize everything first.. So I am waiting for this damn firmware update.

Almost 8pm here. Getting a little past evening for me going, into night time.

I hope they fix the autorefresh on the browser.. It's annoying.

HTML 5 VID in browser works well.. Hope they improve it so it works on every HTML 5 video source (doesn't work with GT, IGN and other sites).
nix  +   560d ago
FB app is crap. when you 'Like' anything the whole page auto freshes which means i'll have to scroll all the way down.

Folders are such a welcome because my home screens are a mess.

and i really really need bigger memory cards. unable to download because of memory shortages is so pissing off. plus they should have options to zip the games i've downloaded so that i can get more space when i'm done playing the game but don't want to delete the game.
