Get the PS Vita Update 1.8

Prior to this, it was reported that Sony released a new software update for its latest game console. Other than the release of version 1.8, the company also updated the PlayStation Store for North America and Europe, although there were some discrepancies on the PSOne titles for Vita that are available on either network.

The reason behind the huge difference in available games is still unknown, although many users reported that they can purchase other PSOne titles on their Vita via console transfer. These include “Metal Gear Solid,” “Silent Hill,” and “Street Fighter Alpha One.”

The PS Vita System Software Update 1.8 is now available via download straight from the console’s Wi-Fi feature or the network feature of PS3, Windows PC, or Mac. Once the update is complete, go to the PS Vita home screen and tap Settings > Start > System > System Information to see if the download and system update are successful.
