Vita Update v2.10 Adds Folders And More
For those of you who own a PlayStation Vita, your portable gaming lifestyle is about to change forever…with folders. No, seriously, PSV firmware update v2.10 goes live this afternoon and, along with some pretty great additional features, users can finally organize all of their crap through the implementation of sweet, sweet folders.
I realize that my tone is likely coming off as sarcastic here, but I assure you that I am being serious when I say that folders being added to the PlayStation Vita is a pretty damn big deal. For anyone who has downloaded more than a couple dozen games and apps onto Sony’s latest handheld, you know full well just how annoying it can be to try and keep track of all of those little content bubbles. Now you’ll be able to group your content and label your folders however you choose, finally bringing order to all of that chaos.
Announced through the PlayStation Blog, update v2.10 will allow Vita users to load up folders with up to 10 items apiece. The content limit has not been raised, however, so you still won’t be able to have more than 100 games/apps on your Vita at a single time, including all of the content you try to cram into those wonderful folders. A little annoying, sure. But, hey, folders!
Along with folders, v2.10 will add several other highly requested features, including the ability to see what game you have loaded into the console by simply looking at the home screen info bar, making it easier than ever to check if you’re ready to roll with Uncharted: Golden Abyss or Gravity Rush without having to pop the dang cartridge out of the console. You’ll also be able to save your icon layouts to the memory card, meaning that swapping memory cards around should no longer be an absolute nightmare.
New support will allow you to properly watch video from within the web browser now, and email has received enhancements that let you add multiple addresses, search through emails, etc.
A new “Mute Automatically” feature will “Automatically Mute” your Vita when the earphones are unplugged, and PS Plus subscribers will be able to automatically update and save content downloaded from PlayStation Mobile.
