Posted on Feb 6 2012 - 6:45am by Editorial Staff

Sony Computer Entertainment confirmed that the company for its PlayStation Vita 1.6 update starting from February 08. The system’s version 1.6 update will be available for download on that date and adds two major features.

Updates Summary:

  • Add the application of the “map”
  • Support to shoot video in the “Photo” application
  • Release version of Mac OS Assistant for PlayStation Content Management
  • PS button will now light up in blue when the power supply of the PS Vita

Sony further reported that this may well be the first compelling reason for some to buy the 3G version of the Vita, as the Wi-Fi-only model doesn’t have GPS hardware. The Photos app will also be updated with the ability to record video, a feature mysteriously missing from the launch firmware. The company is finally releasing a Mac version of its Content Manager application to go with the new firmware, which is required for transferring media and other data to and from the Vita. We have official confirmation from Sony that the update will indeed be coming this February 8th.
