PS Vita Firmware 3.50 to be released on the 26th March!
It has been quiet in terms of PS Vita firmware updates since version 3.3x.
The new PS Vita firmware will be version 3.50, which is going to be a mandatory firmware, required for connecting the PS Vita to a Playstation 4 running version 2.50.
It is most likely expected that Sony is going to patch the Custom Bubble hack, released in late December 2014. It is also expected that Sony is going to fix the released firmware 3.36 usermode exploit games, and even the newly released kernel mode exploit.
But what else does the new Firmware offer? Next to exploit fixes, of course!?
Well… It is assumed that this is Sony’s ‘March Update’, the one that is going to remove the Maps application, completely neuter (if not remove) the Near application and prevent users from using the YouTube application (which ceases to function as of mid April).
Until now, the Firmware is pretty much just removing features, instead of, you know, adding new feature…
But fret not! Sony mentioned in their Playstation 4 system software 2.50 blog post, that the Playstation Vita will be capable of PS4 streaming content in 60fps!
That’s it. No other changes for the Playstation Vita system software 3.50 are known (yet).
