Vita 2.00 update: Won't have to quit games to use browser photo



Having to quit a game to use a game system's web browser is the silliest thing I can imagine. That was the reality for Sony's PlayStation Vita, but that changes this week with the ver 2.00 update.

A tweet by PlayStation boss Shuhei Yoshida lets us know that the update will turn the browser into a "small app," meaning that you can open it while playing a game. Finally!

If you haven't heard, the update also improves the browser's performance. Visual performance has been tweaked, and the HTML5 and Javascrpit engines have been upgraded. There's also a neat Tweet button for the browser. Better late than never, right?
