At long last

As promised, Sony has launched the latest firmware update for the PlayStation Vita. The hotly anticipated refresh brings with it PSone emulation as well as a slew of other improvements. Unfortunately, you can count the number of officially supported classics on two hands in North America.

SCEA’s list of compatible titles may include favourites such as Final Fantasy VII and Jet Moto, but it’s missing the girth of Europe’s list which is roughly 13 times longer. The good news is that a lot of the game’s not included on North America’s list do actually work. Trust Sony to take something relatively straight forward, and make it unbelievably complicated.

Outside of PSone compatibility, the software update also implements button controls on the home screen and improvements to the web browser. You can view all of the changes in action courtesy of the trailer below.
