PS3 firmware updates prepares for Vita

So last night was all pumped to play a little Uncharted multiplayer until I turned on my Playstation 3 system to find something shocking. I needed to update my firmware to the new and exciting v4.00. Normally this would cause for a little annoying grunt and result in me waiting patiently for 20 minutes, but something caught my eye. This update allows for players to use their PS Vita with their PS3s! That’s right, Playstation is preparing players for the upcoming Vita. So that’s exciting. The update also includes:

-Options for Playstation Plus members to enable or disable automatic updates for

  • Game patches
  • System software
  • Recommended games and videos
  • Sync trophy information

-New PlayStation Network settings for filtering friend requests and messages
