The Sony PS Vita firmware 2.11 has just been released and as usual, it says “software stability has been improved” in the changes. We have been reading this message over and over again for the last few months because of the cat and mouse game between the hackers and Sony.
We’re unsure of what changes this update brings, but reports from many users mention that the the lock screen was really buggy on firmware 2.10 and 2.11 seems to resolve this issue.
But, what you are actually going to read in this article is an overview of the many features firmware 2.10 brings us. The main change is the feature to arrange all your applications into folders. We have been waiting for this feature ever since the Vita was released and it should have been one of the many features on the Vita from launch.
Sony PS Vita Firmware 2.10 Changes
The other changes are listed below.
- Create folders to more easily manage your favorite application icons on the home screen, with up to 10 icons in each folder and a maximum of 100 on the home screen (including icons inside the folders).
- Verify which PS Vita card you are using by looking at the home screen’s info bar. You can also save the layout of your home screen icons in the memory card.
- Added video support allows you to play videos within the browser (memory card required; some videos are not supported).
- New email enhancements allows you to view HTML messages, add multiple email addresses to your contacts, and easily search your messages using the new search feature.
- PlayStation Plus members will be able to automatically update PlayStation Mobile format software and upload game save data onto online storage using 3G connection.
- New “Mute Automatically” option will mute your PS Vita speakers when your headset is unplugged and pause your music when using the music app.
This update is pretty handy considering the loads of new features, and the most awaited one Folder Support. Will Sony be able to supply us with more new features for the PS Vita soon? Only time can tell.
