In prep for the impending PS4 launch, Sony’s released PS Vita firmware 3.00. It’s out for download on Network Update now, bringing with it some significant changes and features. Of note is PS4 Link, which has been added a built-in app on the Vita home screen. This application allows users to remotely control a PS4 system and play select PS4 titles via streaming. It also allows the Vita to double as a second screen for supported titles.
Other noteworthy changes include an improved layout for the Friends app, the ability to transfer files from a PS3 to Vita via WiFi. Trophies earned in PS4 titles will also now display on the Vita. According to Sony, rarity of PS4 trophies cannot be displayed, which is an interesting tidbit — it seems Sony plans on listing how rare certain trophies are on PS4.
The changelog in its entirety can be found below.
