PS Vita firmware v1.61 coming soon

The PS Vita wide release is right around the corner. With it so close Sony has made the latest software update available for download. If you haven’t downloaded version 1.60, this is what you can expect from the new update.

  • A new application, (Maps), has been added to the home screen.
  • In addition to photos, you can now take videos using the Photo application.
  • You can now publish stories about the products that you rate in PlayStation Store to Facebook.
  • In near, players’ information is now displayed on the Discoveries screen. On this screen, a list of the online IDs of up to 100 players that you have encountered, and the number of times that you encountered each player, are displayed. Tap an online ID to display that player’s profile screen.
  • The Mac OS version of Content Manager Assistant for PlayStation has been released. The Windows version has also been updated.

Upgrading from 1.60 to 1.61 will simply “improve certain aspects of the system software”.

If you’d like, you can download the Content Manager Assistant right here.

  1. The biggest update I want is the ability to play MKV files and/or a browser that doesn’t suck.
