PlayStation Vita is set to receive a big update late this month, with PSone compatibility and cross-controller functionality the key features set to come to the handheld.
Update 1.80 will allow Vita gamers to use their handheld as a controller for compatible PS3 games, including LittleBigPlanet 2. The feature will be accessed via the Remote Play application on the Vita.
The Vita's main home screen will also get button functionality, a often-requested feature after Sony opted for touch-screen exclusive control of the system's operating system.
Music support will get a new Playlists function, allowing you to transfer iTunes, M3U and M3U8 playlists from a PlayStation 3 or PC via Vita's Content Manager.
The web browser will bring touch pad operation, which will allow you to control and scroll through webpages like on a tablet.
