  1. DualShock 4 supported on Vita TV too.

    • Fantastic! Shame there’s no sign of release over here yet, does it still only support Japanese accounts?

  2. Google Calendar sync is awesome :D

    • This feature makes me wonder if this facility is PS4 bound too?

  3. Seems like a great update, particularly the “Manage Content on Memory Card”!

    Hopefully we’ll have an equally good update for PS4 soon.

    • Nice! Does this mean we can delete game date and keep save date now? I don’t have Plus and backing up 14GB to my laptop is soooo slooooow.

      • That’s what I’m hoping mate, it would seem so – it’s almost essential given all the PS+ freebies we get, and the still rather small memory cards (if you’re like me and want to have all your digit PSOne and PSP games on there too)!

      • If you’re on ps+ just back up the save data to the cloud then if you redownload the game put it back on the vita.

  4. No Netflix still but still great update, I recently bought 64gb card great buy & got it for £40 due to amazon blunder

    • Great bargain bagged, don’t see cock ups like that too often! I recently bought one of their 16GB cards for £18.50 in a flash sale so just the two 16GB cards for me.

      • I was going do that buy 2 16gb but the thought of keep changing memory card bothers me lol. I have a 8gb & 16gb card already & it annoys me changing between them bothered me lol

      • You can get a 64GB card for £60 inc free shipping from Yesasia.com. I recently bought one, it’s well worth it due to the price and knowing I won’t have to change memory cards.

  5. Nice to see the Vita isn’t being forgotten about, now i just need to pick up one vey large card :)

    • Also, bluetooth keyboard support added and you can now use DS4 for Vita Tv if you have one of those.

  6. Some good features there, Sony seems to be listening to what folk want.

  7. A shared PSN calender accross all SONY devices would be awesome, especially if it could somehow sync to iOS calendars

  8. This seems to be going the right direction, and it is indeed good to see the Vita is not forgotten.
    In the next update, will you finally enable multiple accounts, please..?

  9. More than 100 apps is huge. Those 32 & 64gb cards were completely points before this. Thank you.
