Now that the first (thousands) of you have PlayStation Vita in your hands, we’re going to begin keeping you posted on any changes to system software here on PlayStation Blog.
In preparation for Wednesday’s wide release of PS Vita, tonight we’re making System Software Update (v1.61) available for download. If you are just turning on your PlayStation Vita for the first time, this

- 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.
