Hi everyone! Later today, we’re releasing a new system software update for PS Vita, version 3.00. This update includes some great features, like a new application called PS4 Link, which — you guessed it — allows PS Vita to connect to PS4 for Remote Play and Second Screen capabilities. We’re thrilled for everyone to see how PS Vita will be the ultimate companion device to PS4 through this application.
We made a video to highlight some of the key features in this new update. Have a look!


For an expanded list of the new updates included in PS Vita’s 3.00 system software, read on:

PS4 Link
The PS4 Link app has been added to the PS Vita system’s home screen. With this application, you can use your PS Vita to remotely control a PS4 system, and play a range of PS4 games on your PS Vita screen. When you’re playing a game on PS4 that supports second screen features, you can also display information from that game on your PS Vita and use it as a second screen.

Parental Controls
The Parental Controls application has been added to the home screen. You can now manage the duration of game play, and the use of games and videos that have parental controls. You can also control access to certain areas of the system, including the use of the Internet browser and Location Data.

Photos
A Panoramic Camera setting has been added. You can now take panoramic photos on PS Vita, and look around the photo by using the PS Vita’s built-in motion sensor.

Friends
The application layout for Friends has been improved. There are now four tabs:
  • Find Player on PSN
  • Friends
  • Friend Requests
  • Players Blocked
Messages
The Group Messaging application name and icon have been changed to Messages. The application layout has also been improved, and you can now send and receive messages with friends and players on PS4 or on mobile devices installed with PlayStation App.

Party
The icon for the Party application has been changed. You can now voice chat and text chat with friends and players on PS4.

Email
You can now sync the contacts saved in your email account from services including Gmail and Yahoo! Mail. To sync your contacts, select Contact List > Options > [CardDAV Settings] > [Add CardDAV Account], and then follow the screens.

Content Manager
You can now use Wi-Fi to connect your PS Vita to a PS3, and transfer data between them. Your PS Vita and PS3 must be connected within the same network.‎ Also, to use this feature, the system software of the PS3 you’re using must be version 4.50 or later.

PS3 Remote Play
The Remote Play application name and icon have been changed to PS3 Remote Play.

Settings
You can now download future system software updates automatically.

Trophies
You can now display Trophies of PS4 software on your PS Vita. Rarity of the trophy cannot be displayed.

I love the PS4 link app. Looks sweet. When you boot it up youve got two options. Remote play or 2nd screen.

Not long to go now guys

I've only just realised that you can put things in folders. Just bunged a load of stuff I don't use / can't delete in a folder and hide it in a corner. It was very satisfying.
