With the Japanese release date for PlayStation Vita less than a month away, Sony’s rolled out Firmware 4.00 for the PlayStation 3. Over on the PlayStation Blog, Senior VP of Sony Network Entertainment Eric Lempel describes the update as a fix that turns the PS3 into “a content management device.”
“It will allow users to copy their digital content such as games, music, photos, and videos between PS Vita and PS3, back up PS Vita games including save data to your PS3 hard drive, and update the system software for your PS Vita system using the network features of your PS3,” Lempel wrote.
Other additions via Firmware 4.00 include PlayStation Plus benefits. Subscribers can now enable and disable the following individual automatic updates:
