PS Vita System Software Update (v.2.10)

Don Mesa's Avatar + Posted by Don Mesa on Apr 09, 2013 // Director, Product Planning & Platform Software Innovation, SCEA

Coming later this evening is the next system software update for PS Vita. We’ve listened to your feedback and have included many improvements to make your PS Vita experience much more enjoyable, such as adding a new folder system that allows you to organize your games and apps.

PS Vita v2.10: Folders

Here’s a look at some of the new enhancements you can expect with software update v.2.10:

  • 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.

Actually my excitation is about the HTML on email app, would be nice, that also you could open attached files on HTML viewer…

The limit for the folder is kinda lame and I hope it is removed moving forward. I also find a bit annoying that when you swipe to look at say the web browser and swipe back to a folder… you have to tap on it again to open it.

this is a joke, you still cannot save backgrounds to the memory card and you can’t even change the background of folders. also the 100 bubble limit still exists, making foldes ultimately redundant. Im not very happy about this.

I got the 2.10 system update and now my games won’t load. I click on the Start screen and the games never load. If I use the Power Off button to later restart the system, the screen freezes and I have to go into Safe mode before restarting everything again.
Anyone else having this problem?

THIS UPDATE BRICKED MY VITA! As soon as I went to perform the system update, I hit the Next button on the screen saying it was for version 2.10 and then it just sat there. I’ve never had this problem so I tried hitting the PS button to back out but it just gave me a minus icon in the top left corner or the screen. After all else failed, I went to turn my Vita off and when I hit ‘Power Off’, the whole thing went unresponsive. I’ve even tried the hard reset of holding the PS button down for 30 seconds with no response. Someone please help! Sony, if this update ruined my system, you owe me a new Vita…

@218

Sounds like a bad install.. Did you update with wi-fi? Maybe it’s an incomplete download/install. Call Sony support.

The install hadn’t even started yet. I never got past the screen stating that a new version of the system software was available.

+ Yaholo on April 10th, 2013 at 6:30 am said:

I am stunned… in a good way. This is the kind of polish and refinement Sony has failed to do in the past. This not only makes the Vita actually useful for holding a game collection, but appears to be a good sign Sony is changing its ways and taking user interface issues seriously. Thank you, Thank you!

FINALLY folders!

How about uploading PSP saves to the cloud? Thats a bit more important the crappy PS Mobile games in my book.

Also, please release cheaper and large memory cards.

+ signal2noise on April 10th, 2013 at 6:49 am said:

Holy crap! Folders AND my icons aren’t going to be clusterF&%ked when I switch cards?!?!?! I love you guys!!!! You made my day with this!

+ ro-kurorai on April 10th, 2013 at 6:51 am said:

Hi Don, just wanted to ask how saving the icon layout to the memory card works. As there’s no specific option to do so I assume it’s saved automatically each time the layout is modified. Is that correct?

y’know casual,defiant,etc
that would be AWSOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!


234

+ Ripley231 on April 10th, 2013 at 7:13 am said:

This is MUCH better, but I’ve been hoping for a while now to able to delete a Vita game without it deleting my saved data (much like the way we can with PSP titles)

Um…. How to get PSP demos on PS Vita. I need specific games, but there are no photos, descriptions aren’t enough.

+ Misbik on April 10th, 2013 at 7:43 am said:

Thanks for the update! I’m happy to know there’s still work being done to improve some things. Unfortunately, I’m not sure I will personnally be impacted by any of these changes.

I’ve never had a need for folders, as I’ve never been able to put much on my Vita. I refuse to pay three times what the price of a memory card SHOULD be, so I’m stuck with a 4 gig card. That means I pretty much only ever have 1-3 digital games on my Vita (and nothing else….movies, etc.) at any given time, and I don’t delete them until I’m completely done with them. So I never have very many icons cluettering up my screen, thus folders for me is a no go at this time.

I also have the WiFi version so apparently I won’t get to benefit from the ability to upload game saves.

I guess the video stuff might come in handy for stuff..I’ll have to test it out before I get excited about it though…

I have to concur with everyone else though…please remove the lock my memory keeping it limited to one account! And please…..lower the price on the memory cards!!!!!

I gotta agree with ike9934. This has got to be the best day for the Vita so far. Now if only my web browser would stop refreshing every five seconds. Whatever, I still love my Vita, my Vita is my vida!!! … now to get back to that damned extreme difficulty harrier on mgs2 hd grrrrrr…

I have a question will the vita memory cards get a price cut? It seam like they are too much even if they are the only memory cards you can get for the vita. The 32gb is the only one that is relabel on memory, but it cost $100. That’s all the gaming money most people have to go out and buy games and there are some good games coming out for the vita. I don’t think the vita is getting a price cut any time soon but the memory cards should get a price cut before the vita. I really think it will help the sells of the vita.
