PlayStation Vita Firmware Update Version 2.10 Out Later Today, Adds Folders and More (Update: Out Now)

Update: 2.10 is now available.

Taking into account a bunch of user feedback, Sony is releasing firmware update version 2.10 for the PlayStation Vita later today, with folders being perhaps the most welcome addition.

Check out all the changes associated with 2.10 below:

  • Create folders to more easily manage your favorite application icons on the home screen, with up to 10 icons in each folder and a maximum of 100 on the home screen (including icons inside the folders).
  • Verify which PS Vita card you are using by looking at the home screen’s info bar. You can also save the layout of your home screen icons in the memory card.
  • Added video support allows you to play videos within the browser (memory card required; some videos are not supported).
  • New email enhancements allows you to view HTML messages, add multiple email addresses to your contacts, and easily search your messages using the new search feature.
  • PlayStation Plus members will be able to automatically update PlayStation Mobile format software and upload game save data onto online storage using 3G connection.
  • New “Mute Automatically” option will mute your PS Vita speakers when your headset is unplugged and pause your music when using the music app.

We’ll do our best to update this post when 2.10 goes live, but if you happen to notice that it is downloadable before we get a chance to tell you, please let us know by sending an email to [email protected].
