PS Vita 2.0 Firmware - Out now!

Sony have, as promised, released the latest software upgrade for the Vita. Apart from adding what is necessary for tomorrows launch of Playstation Plus on the Vita, there are quite a few fixes and additions.

The biggest feature is the huge update to the Web browser application. Now with a new rendering engine and capable of supporting HTML5 and JavaScript. There is a real speed increase and the browser is now classed as a "small app". This means that you no longer have to close your running game in order to use the browser.

Email has now been included into the Vita's features and hooking it up to my Gmail has shown a very nice interface and a good alternative to reading email on your phone.

There also new options for wireless content transfer between PC/ PS3 to your Vita. PSone emulations also have some new included options for custom controls and screen size.

Take a look at the feature list below and enjoy the video at the top of the page. Don't forget, tomorrows store update includes the Playstation Plus games. Europe gets Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Gravity Rush, Tales from Space and new game Chronovolt. Also a range of games are 20% off for one week to celebrate the launch.
