    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. :(

    Those have been the only games I've purchased on PSN, like 4 or 5 different PS1 games.

    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.

    The only good addon is the caps lock.

    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.)
