Attention all PlayStation 3 owners, you should be prepared to have to stare at your download/install screen for an extended period of time as all consoles will be prompted to download the firmware update tonight that adds Vita support.
The new update, v4.00, allows users to “copy their digital content such as games, music, photos, and videos between PS Vita and PS3, back up PS Vita games including save data to your PS3 hard drive, and update the system software for your PS Vita system using the network features of your PS3.” Sony also mentions on their official Blog that PlayStation Plus members are allowed to choose whether to enable or disable each of the following automatic update features:
- Game patches
- System software
- Recommended games and videos
- Sync trophy information
Also included are new PlayStation Network settings for filtering friend requests and messages. So, make sure before you go to bed or when you wake up to start the update.
