The next Playstation Vita software update (v1.80) releasing soon will add or update many features on the Vita including the ability to play PSOne classics. Being able to play Playstation classics on the handheld is one of the most requested features many of you have been waiting for. For me this means I will get play MediEvil on yet another Sony console. I adored the MediEvil franchise and have played the first game at least once on every Sony console since the original Playstation with the exception of PSP Go but that doesn’t really count anyway. Now that I will be able to play it on Vita I beg of you Sony please add MediEvil 2 to the PSOne lineup.
A few other additions to Vita’s software update is cross controller which allows you to use the handheld as a controller in compatible games on PS3. If you watched Sony’s press conference at Gamescom you saw that Little Big Planet will soon offer new levels that utilize cross controller.
If you did not like using the touchscreen to navigate and control the home screen and certain applications you will now be able to do so with buttons. The rear touch pad is now compatible with the browser which will allow you to scroll and zoom pages.
Playlists are now supported in Music. iTunes playlists will now transfer from a PS3 or PC with the help of the Content Manager. Repeat play and playback speed control have been added to video and viewing photos in MPO format is now possible.
A few other noteworthy tweaks to the Vita is the ability to add photos you take as attachments for group messages. As well as improvements to “Near” and the Maps feature. Look for the Vita software update v1.80 to be available August 28th.
