    You got my hopes up. I was thinking we'd finally get the PS1 support they promised, or perhaps more of my PSP games would be compatible. :(

    Meh, this is why I still have a PSP. Nothing the PS Vita offers right now is appealing to me, and I still have full access to PSP and PS1 titles.

    Apparently (according to Wololo's blog comments) they pulled the update for some reason.

    Strange. Well I'm positive I have the latest one, since I have the feature described in the first post. I suppose you should just wait for it to realize there's a update.

    (Or what Xist said.)
