Sony’s PS3 has hit PlayStation version 4.00, just in time for the imminent arrival of the PS Vita in Japan.
According to Sony, this new software updates the PS3 to serve as a content management device for the Vita, allowing transfer of content such as games, music, photos, and videos between PS Vita and PS3. The software will also allow you to back up PS Vita save data to your PS3 hard drive, and update the system software for your PS Vita system using the network features of your PS3.
Other changes to take effect with this update allow PlayStation Plus members to choose to enable or disable each of the following automatic update features:
- Game patches
- System software
- Recommended games and videos
- Sync trophy information
Finally, new PSN privacy settings for filtering friend requests and messages have also been added.
