PS Vita system software update 2.60 explained

Here’s the full run down:

  1. PS Plus has been added to the LiveArea of a game, making it even easier for you to back-up and download data. Just select a game and tap the PlayStation Plus icon on the LiveArea screen – from there you can upload your game data to Online Storage. You can also choose to download previously saved data to carry on playing where you left off previously on another PS Vita.
  2. Secondly, We’ve made it really easy for you to access your Settings. Simply hold down the PS button to bring up a range of options including setting up Flight Mode, Wi-Fi, Mobile Network (3G/Wi-Fi model only) and Bluetooth features.
  3. Thirdly, you can now play music and video content on your PS Vita from a connected PS3 or PC. All you need to do is open the Video or Music apps from the home screen, select a connected device and then pick which content you want to play.
  4. On top of all this, we’ve expanded the video formats supported on the PS Vita system’s browser and introduced new privacy settings so you can choose how you want to share your Trophy information.
