I found myself needing space on my Vita for the first time when trying to download Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD. Then I learned there is no easy way to delete things from your Vita aside from deleting individual bubbles, which deletes games and saves. Similarly, I'd have to go deep within system settings to see if I'd made enough room because I can't remember three numbers at once. It's why I know my birthday, but not the year.

Anyway, there a Vita firmware update that is too late for me, but maybe it will save you some hassle, because it brings a memory card content manager.

It also lets you display 500 applications on the home screen, up from 100. Which was apparently a problem for some of you? Are you nuts?

There's also voice messaging, so expect me screaming No Doubt lyrics into your ears if you're one of my PlayStation Palz™. SORRY I'M NOT HOME RIGHT NOW I'M WALKING INTO SPIDERWEBS, LEAVE A MESSAGE AND I'LL CALL YOU BACK.

  • You can now display up to 500 applications on the home screen.
  • A Calendar application has been added for PS Vita, allowing you to set up gaming events with your friends. Sync your Google calendar to have all your events with you on your PS Vita. You can also share your favorite events by using the Messages and Email applications.
  • A new “Manage Content on Memory Card” option has been added to the Content Manager application. You can now view the data on your memory card, making it easier than ever to manage content on your PS Vita. You can now view memory usage by content type, and delete content and applications.
  • You can now send and receive voice messages using the Messages application on PS Vita. Exchange voice messages with your friends and players on PS4 and PS Vita.
