March 25, 2014Written by Jason Dunning


Last night, firmware update 3.10 for the PlayStation Vita became available to download. One of the biggest features brought along with this new update is the increase of apps on the home screen from 100 to 500, a feature people have been asking about for months and months now.

Here’s a brief list of the changes brought along in 3.10:

  • You can now display up to 500 applications on the home screen.
  • A Calendar application has been added for PS Vita, allowing you to set up gaming events with your friends. Sync your Google calendar to have all your events with you on your PS Vita. You can also share your favorite events by using the Messages and Email applications.
  • A new “Manage Content on Memory Card” option has been added to the Content Manager application. You can now view the data on your memory card, making it easier than ever to manage content on your PS Vita. You can now view memory usage by content type, and delete content and applications.
  • You can now send and receive voice messages using the Messages application on PS Vita. Exchange voice messages with your friends and players on PS4 and PS Vita.

The US site hasn’t updated yet to reflect 3.10 yet, but the UK site has, and it details everything to do with 3.10:

Main Features

Messages – You can now send and receive voice messages.
