Look Around the PlayStation Vita's Latest Firmware Update

Please ensure that you have your copybook at hand

We don’t know what your high school experience was like, but whenever our teachers couldn’t be bothered to do any work, we were always plonked in front of a video. Perched on uncomfortable stools, we'd be forced to watch low-budget documentaries, which almost always included really patronising voiceovers and terrible backing tracks.

This official PlayStation Vita trailer reminds us of those mind-numbing mornings sat in a sweltering science lab while Mr. Smith nursed a hangover in the corner. Seriously, couldn’t the platform holder have found a way to make its latest firmware update seem even remotely exciting. This is more vanilla than a tub of Carte D'or.

I simply cannot believe that this was produced by someone with a straight face.

Finally cloud saving!!! I can now delete a game without having to backup save files on a computer first. Why they don't just have them save to the memory card I don't know. I accidentally lost a lot of saves due to that.

@get2sammyb really?, for me its so bad it should be sealed in concrete and dumped in the north sea, OR jetted into flexible.

@Wesker It's already had Cloud saves through the content manager app. They've just added an extra shortcut to make it easier.
Content Manager will still be the easier way if you're copying several save files, but the new shortcut will be the way to go if you're just copying one.

@DVD_Sandwich: To be fair, the old method of cloud saving was SO cumbersome and difficult to find in the first place, I only attempted it once. This update was sorely needed.

And yeah, this video is insane. But hey, at least it gets the point across. That's all that really matters anyway.

Cool. I'm American, so anyone with a British accent makes it more interesting. That dude could explain how he butters toast, and I'd be, like, fascinated and enraptured and whatnot.

True fact: whenever our history teacher in years 10-11 couldn't be bothered with a lesson he had a cunning plan - put on Blackadder, series 2-4. Failed history but fell in love with that show.

@jgrangervikings lol they've gotta know its a novelty to us; wasn't Look Around You on Adult Swim? Is Sony trying to be funny? Are England's entire population's tongues constantly in their cheeks? Blue. No, green! Aaaaaaahhh...
