PS Vita firmware update 1.61 released

Last minute update ahead of tomorrow's launch

Sony's apparently released firmware 1.61 for PS Vita, ahead of tomorrow's official launch.

Confusingly Sony's updates list includes some of the features included in the last firmware update, but here it is anyway:

  • A new application, (Maps), has been added to the home screen.
    In addition to photos, you can now take videos using the Photo application.
  • You can now publish stories about the products that you rate in PlayStation Store to Facebook.
  • In near, players' information is now displayed on the Discoveries screen. On this screen, a list of the online IDs of up to 100 players that you have encountered, and the number of times that you encountered each player, are displayed. Tap an online ID to display that player's profile screen.
  • The Mac OS version of Content Manager Assistant for PlayStation has been released. The Windows version has also been updated.
