Sony has released the latest firmware update for the PS Vita, update 2.60, and going by the various reports that are making the rounds online at the moment, the changes made are making the console far more convenient to use in a variety of ways. After spending some time with the update, Polygon is reporting that the update allows quick uploading and downloading of game saves via PlayStation Plus cloud storage, which is useful for those who have a lack of space on their memory cards or want to access saves that aren’t on the memory card.
Also available in the update is the addition of a PS Plus icon to the LiveArea screen for each game. You just tap the icon to move your saves around the cloud. The ability to access and play content from any connected PC or PS3 can be achieved using the Vita’s music and video apps. The final part of the update allows users to quickly enable flight safe mode, adjust wi-fi settings, alter brightness and volume, and turn Bluetooth on or off, all achieved by simply holding down the PS button on the system.
