Vita Updates Less Intrusive than PS3

Posted by at 1:09 pm on September 19, 2011

President of Sony Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida has said that the Vita update process won’t be as laborious as it is on PlayStation 3 and PSP.

Speaking to Game Informer, Yoshida said that the company realised that the time taken to update PS3 firmware was excessive. “It’s very annoying when you only have one in your busy life to play a game, and when you to spend 30 minutes out of that one hour to update the hardware.

“So it’s not necessarily the frequency of how we update, it’s the intrusiveness of the current process we have on PS3 and PSP.” While not going into specific plans for the Vita’s update system, he stated that Sony is “very aware of the issues, and we’d like to address those issues on PS Vita.”

The good news is Sony’s awareness of its own usability problems: the PSP Go was a nightmare to use, and the PlayStation 3 often requires a lengthy warm-up period of updates and installations before you can play a recently purchased game
