In addition to folders, Sony have confirmed the other tweaks to the PS Vita’s operating system that’ll be updated in version 2.10.
Firstly the details on folders, though: 10 icons can be stored in each folder, but you’re still limited to 100 applications and games in total, which seems a bit odd.
Confirmation on the video playback info has appeared, too – the Vita can now play videos in the internet browser, although it’s not going to be all formats. We’re hopeful this means streaming sites will work well.
The other stuff is as follows:
- Group Messaging can now send to more than one person.
- Email can display HTML messages and offer multiple addresses per contact
- Photos can be zoomed in (in HD)
- and PlayStation Plus game saves can be uploaded over 3G
Apparently that’s just “some” of the new features, so we’ll double check for any secrets (as is the norm) when the firmware is released.
The firmware goes live overnight tonight.
