Sony today released PlayStation Vita software update version 2.60, and it brings a very useful new feature to the company’s handheld gaming console. Basically the feature allows users to access content on other devices without having to copy those files to their consoles. Users are now able to play games as well as other content stored on a PlayStation 3 console or even a computer without ever needing to transfer all of it on the Vita. The update has been rolled out, which means that users can either download and install it over Wi-Fi or by connecting the Vita to a computer or PS3 console.
In order to access content from a Mac or PC, users will first need to install the Content Manager Assistant for PlayStation software from Sony. Accessing content stored on other devices is actually quite easy. Users just need to select the connected device from a list and then choose what content they want to access on their Vita. The update is also said to make it easier to upload or download saved data through PlayStation Network servers. A couple of new ways to control various browser and video settings have been added. Last but not the least, users are now able to customize Vita’s home screen through the console’s system buttons.
