Vita Firmware 2.0 "Official" Discussion Thread.

228 replies 3754 views Edited Nov 21, 2012

Once the new firmware is in place, please use this thread for all discussion on the update. Please list any complaints, concerns, issues, or even compliments. I will keep this thread updated daily.

 

Thank you.

 


2.0 Pros

  • Better web browser
  • Email client
  • Wi-Fi content manager with PC
  • Cloud saves for Vita games
  • Faster screen shots
  • Using the browser no longer requires closing game applications. (That have been tested so far.)

 

2.0 Cons

  • Users can't set an auto update time for PS+
  • Rear touch screen has to be reset for browser use every time.
  • Email app can be confusing for adding emails other than Gmail or Yahoo
  • Some users are having trouble with Wifi connectivity after the update.
  • No option to upload PSP or PS 1 saves to the Cloud

Hopes and wishes for the next update.

  • A calander 
  • Creating our own playlists via the Vita rather than having to import.

 

Frequently asked questions and answers.

 

Q> Can I enroll or purchase PS Plus on my Vita without having a PS 3?

A> Yes. It will be available on the PSN Store after the store update on 11/20/12.

 

Q> I can't get my Vita to connect to my PC via Wi-fi. How do I fix it?

A> Install the new version of the Content Manager from the Vita to your PC. Then try it.

Q> How do I set up the automatic update for my Vita?

A> Go to Settings > Playstation Network > Automatic Update Settings

I'll be the first to say sony is fully aware of the issue some are finding with the 'page limit', and that people are in need of 'folders' or something of the sort. However, as much as i appreciate the great browser updates in the last two firmwares, i wish they'd add copy/paste to the system functionality and also 'text box' scrolling, so we don't have to fumble around trying to click inside the 'slider' or those little arrows.

Aside from that i'll probably have to play around with the system for a little while after FW2.0 tonight to get an idea of what could be worked on and what's been changed for the better.

 

Edit:

It's about time to replace 1.8 discussion with this, 2.0 discussion. Hopefully a Mod will sticky and unsticky accordingly.

The weather option for maps is simple, but I like it. However, for some reason it's loading slower than usual.

Okay so I downloaded the firmware update, installed it, went to the Store and there's nothing even mentioning Playstation Plus.  Not even the yellow cross with a "Want to buy?" link.

 

So I'm like...whatevs, maybe it's not an overly cosmetic change...go to d/l Gravity Rush...$35.99.  I go to d/l Wipeout 2048...$35.99.

 

Seriously??  I'm a full on 12 month subscriber to PS+.  My Sub isn't up until April.  What's a guy gotta do?
