    PS Vita System Software Update v1.61



    Sony have released a patch for the upcoming Playstation Vita release on the 22nd. System Software Update v1.61 will add some pretty good features, so it's worth making sure you have it.

    If it's the first time you turn on your PS Vita, the update will add these features:

    • 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.
    You can download Content Manager Assistant from here. Refer to the website to find out how to install the application.

    If you've already managed to get your hands on a PS Vita and installed v1.60, installing the new v1.61 will improve certain aspects of the system software.

    There are a couple of ways to update the firmware on your PS Vita:

    • Select “System Update” under the “Settings” menu and download the firmware directly to your PS Vita over Wi-Fi.
    • Connect your PS Vita to a PS3 or a PC/Mac and update via Content Manager.

    I'm fairly sure I'm looking at a Maps app on my Vita now... But Mac help, that'll help getting some music on there.

    As like the PSP, there is already remote play and no you can not play PS3 games on the VITA because quite frankly the VITA cannot handle that of which the PS3 can handle, however it can handle much more then any system preceding the PS3.

    Sony included the changelog notes from 1.60 in with 1.61 cause, if the ones being released tomorrow are like the first editions, the Vita is getting released with an earlier firmware. So to the people tomorrow, they will be getting a new map app.

    you can play ps3 games on you vita. one of the demos b4 the vita release was showing how the remote play worked by playing killzone 3 on the vita.
