+ bball230 on March 24th, 2014 at 5:08 pm said:

Long time request for the PS-Vita system software team.

First and foremost, WPA-Enterprise (wifi) support for the Vita.

Many college campuses use this, and students cannot play their vita’s online. (Ohio state is one of the largest universities in the world).
And its inaccessible for all of us. WPA-Ent2 is a very common security authentication.

**Can we please get confirmation if this is even possible? or in the works. Its huge for a lot of us.

Second. Can we please have the ability to mark Email as READ/UNREAD on the vita email app… Just a basic feature needed for all email applications, and its missing on the vita.
Thanks All!

Ok getting better but this took 4 months? Well whatever I guess but now if we could delete Via apps and games without also deleting the save data that would be lovely

Also music and screenshots while in PSP games, if screenshots are not possible do to some legal reason then at least get music in there

+ KKAtan on March 24th, 2014 at 5:12 pm said:

Some things on my Wish list:

Better organisation of Vita’s Download List
- Separation of Vita games from PS3 games and PS4 games, just like PS Mobile games are separated in their own special section.
- Separation of DLC from our games list, do they get their own Download List.
- Separation of Demo, give them their own section.
- Separation of Avatars&Themes, so they also get their own section.

This should make our Download List more easy to navigate when there are several hundreds of entries on the list.

Any chance on updating PlayStation Vita’s PSN account system to be in line with PlayStation 3 and 4′s, where users can have multiple PSN accounts active on the device and can play content downloaded across all registered accounts on any one account?


23

+ KKAtan on March 24th, 2014 at 5:20 pm said:

Some more things I wish we could have is higher quality custom wallpapers.

When we apply wallpapers into PS Vita, they often get heavy compression artifacts that makes the image look like it’s saved with low quality JPEG settings.

I would also like the option of having screenshots encoded in .PNG format.

Have you added an option to use a button press to get past the “pull the page diagonally” screen you get when you turn on the system or wake it up from suspend? I don’t really like touching my screen unless I absolutely have to.

+ ISLAND-THUNDER on March 24th, 2014 at 5:20 pm said:

Oh man FINALLY! These fix my biggest gripes with Vitas OS. Really good move here Sony

Couple questions though

1. Is this separate from tomorrows PSN store update?

2. I know you can’t say too much ahead of time but do you have an expected time when PSN will update tomorrow? Or at least know of somewhere that will update as soon as it is? Im really looking forward to the Conception 2 demo and want to start on it ASAP

Thanks in advance!

    Can’t speak to the timing of the publish, but agreed! Stoked to try Conception II :)

I hope us in the states get the 64 gig card soon. With PS Plus I’ve had no room for months now.

Good job on listening to what a lot of people were requesting. I love how the mem card management looks in line with the data management on PS4. I’d really like to see the Vita’s OS slowly evolve to look closer to the PS4′s menu; at least in aesthetics and GUI elements. So far so good.

Has the team in charge of firmware plans ever thought to add in screenshot sharing on the Vita? A lot of us would love to post our awesome scores and other screens straight to FB or Twitter just as easy as we can on PS4. It’s also a bit of a pain to connect my Vita to my PC just to get the screenshots off. It would be nice if there was a faster, more elegant way of doing that.

Otherwise, keep on trucking with these awesome firmware updates and I hope to see some performance improvements to Remote Play as well as those juicy new PS4 features we’re getting! Thanks guys!

So is there no longer a limit in the amount of apps you can place within a bubble? I would love to have a single bubble with all my PS+ games for instance instead of splitting them because you can only have 10.

+ xClayMeow on March 24th, 2014 at 5:26 pm said:

I haven’t come close to the previous 100-limit, but I know this will make a ton of people extremely happy. And I’m happy too…that I don’t have to see them whine in every single Vita-related post.

+ naruto9876__ on March 24th, 2014 at 5:28 pm said:

so if the PS4 and the vita got updates does that mean the PS3 will be getting updates to god i hope i haven’t seen an update for the ps3 in ages but i like the update for the vita i will download it when i go back on my vita


32

+ OrganicShadow on March 24th, 2014 at 5:29 pm said:

@Kchow23: i think they just increased the max number of apps that can be installed on the Vita in total.

currently, you can only have ten bubbles with ten apps each, OR 100 individual apps. either way, the limit is 100 apps total regardless of the bubbles. the new firmware will increase it to 500, so you’ll be able to have up to 10 apps per bubble, making it 50 maximum (full) bubbles total.

i think it’s a good compromise because 10 apps is the same as how many fit on a single page on the home screen, so limiting a bubble to 10 apps is natural.

How about improvement to screenshots when taken screenshot doing games; most of the time their look blurred out half the time. If possible how about live steaming off the Vita to Twitch or Usteam if not possible its okay. How about fixing the problem with party chat were you don’t lose connection if idle for to long when not chatting or when chatting. Fix the App for friends; it will sometime show i don’t have any friends at all and i had to leave PS Vita off for 10 mins then restart it from safe mode to fix the problem half the time now. How about improvement to the Internet Browser to support more Image, Audio, Video formats, and when Javascript enabled, pages always reload randomly for no reason please try to fix it.

Will we see 128GB Vita memory card some day?

PLEASE fix the download list on the Store on the Vita… I JUST want to see games that are actually playable on the Vita. Why is this not an option? With PS+, I have a ton of stuff to scroll through to find games that are actually for the Vita.

Thank you all at Sony that develop the firmware/updates for the Vita and giving more for this wonderful handheld!

I’ll admit, I’ve always enjoyed the PSP, but the Vita has so much to offer. It’s in a lot of ways what PSP owners have wanted after the PSP. Thanks again and can’t wait to download this baby! :)

+ OrganicShadow on March 24th, 2014 at 5:42 pm said:

@jose213jose: i agree with the screenshots. if they can squeeze some more 1′s and 0′s out of the Vita OS to get the screenshots to be higher quality (or better yet, uncompressed PNG) it would be highly appreciated.

i don’t think video streaming will be possible though. PS4 has extra chips n what not jammed up inside it for the express purpose of encoding/decoding video feeds as well as managing network in the background. Vita just wouldn’t be able to handle it.

@KeklarHastene: oh yeah, that’s another thing i forgot about. to be honest though, the download list and/or library need to be fixed across PS3/Vita/PS4 completely. i’m in I.T. but not networking or engineering, so i don’t know what all is involved in getting that set up, but it seems like it isn’t out of the realm of possibility to have a Library function that will show you everything that you’ve purchased and let you sort by platform/date/installed/not-installed/etc. Android does a splendid job of that, although it doesn’t have sorting.

I know this isn’t related to the patch, but please Sony, make Crash and Spyro’s PS1 Classics compatible with the PS Vita in North America. Europeans have been able to do that for ages now. If you can’t do it, at least be transparent and let us know.

I have close to forty retail games for the Vita. They don’t take up much room on the memory card. Then add PS1, PSP, and anything else from PS+ and I reached the 100 app limit. Thanks for the update!

-Secondly i wanted to know if the ps vita 2000 will come in different colors in the United States, i know some places already do but not sure about the US. (Also will there be a Borderlands 2 bundle with different colors?)
- Also will there be a price cut on the memory cards because for many people this is what’s stopping them from getting a vita. Lastly thanks for the update :D
