Recently Vita owners have been treated to the 2.10 firmware update. I say treated because rather than just some behind the scene changes, this is an update that includes what many of us have been asking for…Playstation 2 games! Not really!
It does offer the ability to create folders which is big for those of us tired of…well not having the ability to create folders. Below is a list of all the new features in firmware 2.10.
• Yay! Sony listened, we can now create folders for home screen icons.
• There is an icon on the info bar to indicate a Vita game is inserted. Finally!
