Being able to browse the web while in-game has always felt like a pipe-dream on any platform, but the PlayStation Vita’s upcoming v2.00 firmware update will finally make that fantasy a reality. Affable executive Shuhei Yoshida took to Twitter to confirm the news, announcing that the software refresh will transform the web browser into a “small app”, meaning that you won’t have to quit games to access it. This is obviously massive news for compulsive Trophy hunters, as it means that you’ll be able to peruse guides without ever needing to exit your game or switch devices.
According to Yoshida, the web browser will be much faster as a result of the tweaks, which is obviously always nice. He added that the changes represent the culmination of “lots of effort” from Sony’s internal firmware team in Japan.
Of course, the forthcoming update will also bring with it PlayStation Plus compatibility, allowing you to backup all of your saves to the cloud, as well as download free titles such as Uncharted: Golden Abyss and Gravity Rush. You can peruse the full line-up through here.
