No need to swipe

PlayStation Vita’s next firmware update will allow you to navigate the system’s home screen without getting finger-prints all over your device. Sony has announced that it is implementing traditional button controls to the device’s hub area on 28th August, alongside PSone Classics support.

Other improvements include the ability to rewind and fast-forward in the Video application, as well as import playlists from the PS3 and iTunes. The web browser will now allow you to zoom in using the rear touch panel, and there’ll be a new cross-controller option added to the Remote Play tool.

You can peruse the full list of tweaks over on the PlayStation Blog. Let us know what’s tickling your fancy in the comments section below.
