Vita v1.61 Update Released

A day one update is available for the new handheld.

Sony released an update for its new handheld today, the launch date of the PlayStation Vita. Firmware update v.1.61 is actually quite similar to the v.1.60, which was released a few weeks ago for the Japanese Vita.

The PlayStation Blog has all the details on the update but some of the bullet points are the inclusion of the Maps app, video recording for the Photo app, the ability to publish PlayStation Store ratings to Facebook and a Near update that keeps record of the last 100 players you've encountered in the Discoveries screen.

The Mac OS version of the Content Manager Assistant is also available. Sony also notes that for those who imported a Vita and had the 1.60 update, the 1.61 firmware will see "certain aspects of the system software" improved. The Vita should automatically prompt you to update but if it doesn't, just select System Update in the settings menu.

Even though Dragon Age: Origins came out a couple of years after the first Mass Effect, it was actually announced way back in 2004 as a PC exclusive. The roots of Origins could be found in BioWare’s classic Baldur’s Gate series, and the design sensibilities of the game were far removed from the company’s more recent action/RPGs like Jade Empire and Mass Effect. Dragon Age 2 was clearly very influenced by the success of Mass Effect 2, and the input of now BioWare parent company EA was easy to see. While Dragon Age 2 alienated some fans of Origins it also created a new set of people invested in the world of Thedas. Now we have a third entry in the series that has the difficult task of keeping old players invested while trying once again to do a “soft reboot” of the franchise. How does BioWare hope to craft a new adventure but still make players feel like they made their mark on the world? Enter the Dragon Age Keep.
