The dreaded PS3 firmware update is something that any PlayStation 3 owner hates with every fiber of their being. Luckily, Sony seems to have understood our pain and are taking steps to make sure that the Vita update process isn’t as frustrating. For everything that the PS3 does well, the way they update it is just terrible.
“It’s very annoying when you only have one hour in your busy life to play a game, and when you have to spend thirty minutes out of that one hour to update the hardware,” said Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida. “So it’s not necessarily the frequency of how we update, it’s the intrusiveness of the current process we have on PS3 and PSP. I cannot talk about specific plans, but we are very aware of the issues, and we’d like to address those issues on PS Vita.”
There you have it folks, we still don’t know how much better the update experience will be on the PlayStation Vita vs the PS3 but we at least know it will be improved.
