Vita firmware 1.80 allows touch controls on PSP games – report

Tuesday, 28th August 2012 06:49 GMT By Brenna Hillier

This week’s Vita system software update packs in a few unadvertised features as well as the much-advertised partial support for PSONe Classics. According to PSN Stores, the new firmware allows you to assign custom touchscreen controls to PSP games, and even to map the L and R triggers onto the right thumb stick – something of a boon in third-person games like Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. The firmware is available now from the US PlayStation network and arrives in Europe with this week’s network update.

    Just checked it out… you can add to the right sticks options like L and R trigger as well as Up, Down on the D pad or L and R by it self instead of all together as well as the start and select buttons.. and there is an option of assigning your buttons to each corner of the touchscreen as well
