We have already reported on PS Vita firmware 1.60 being released, which added maps and the ability to record video on the system, however today that firmware has been tweaked slightly.
Going under the name of firmware version 1.61, this latest firmware is said to make the following changes:
- A new application, (Maps), has been added to the home screen.
- In addition to photos, you can now take videos using the Photo application.
- You can now publish stories about the products that you rate in PlayStation Store to Facebook.
- In near, players’ information is now displayed on the Discoveries screen. On this screen, a list of the online IDs of up to 100 players that you have encountered, and the number of times that you encountered each player, are displayed. Tap an online ID to display that player’s profile screen.
- The Mac OS version of Content Manager Assistant for PlayStation has been released. The Windows version has also been updated.
You can download theContent Manager Assistant from here.
If you have already updated your PS Vita to the firmware we already reported on v1.60, then 1.61 will improve certain aspects of the system software.
