Vita system software 3.30 is now rolling out, so grab the update and start applying themes to your portable’s home screen.


Vita themes were promised by Sony during its pre-Tokyo Game Show presentation and have turned up today with the latest firmware update.

System Software 3.30 is now available in North America and should hit regional PSN servers soon, if it hasn’t already.

The most requested feature of the update is the ability to customise your Vita Home screen with themes. The PlayStation Blog has more details on that.

The full patch notes are below, courtesy of Gematsu:

  • [Theme & Background] has been added to [Settings]. You can download your favorite themes and customize the PS Vita/PS TV.
  • You can now check the rarity of trophies.
  • You can now attach and send events created in [Calendar] to [Messages] and [Email]. Recipients can save those events in their own calendars.
  • You can now add Friends and other players to events created in [Calendar].
  • The name of the VTE-1000 series has been changed to “PlayStation TV”.
  • A maximum of 4 wireless controllers can be connected to the PS TV. The number of players depends on the game or application.
