PS Vita Firmware coming Feb 8, adds map, mac support, more

Sony is getting set to release a new firmware update for PlayStation Vita on February 8.

The new update (version 1.6) adds two new major features: a Map app, allowing you to  see your positional information on a map. The map can be viewed with satellite imagery turned on and off. You can also search for walking and driving directions and view details about your current location.

The other addition is the ability to record videos via the camera app.

Smaller changes see the Home button now flashing blue when you have the Vita hooked up to power.

In addition to the firmware update, Sony will also release a MAC OS version of its Content Management Assistant for PlayStation program, this will allow owners of the machines to manage their content like those on PC.

As previously mentions, PlayStation Network accounts will also be changed to Sony Entertainment Network accounts at the same time.

A new PS3 firmware update is also expected around this time.
