Vita firmware 1.80 allows touch controls on PSP games – report

Tuesday, 28 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.
