News: PS Vita Firmware v2.10 Adds Folder Support

psvita2.10foldersYou’ve spoken and Sony has listened!

The PS Vita will be receiving its latest firmware update v2.10 adds folder support, allowing users to organise their games and apps into manageable folders, something that’s been sought after since the console launched. Better late than never…

As well as implementing folder support, the v2.10 update also allows you to watch videos from within the PS Vita’s inbuilt browser, another thing that’s been missing for far too long, but again, better late than never.

Check out the full list of tweaks, additions and fixes down below:

  • 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.

It’s about time the PS Vita got folder support, it will definitely make organising games and apps much easier and will no doubt make many PS Vita users happy. It’s worth noting though, the PS Vita is still limited to 100 bubbles, but maybe that’s something Sony will come to fix sometime down the line, for now though we’re pretty happy.

The update is due to go live later on today for North American owners and sometime tomorrow for UK and European PS Vita owners, so be on the lookout.
