This is the update you need if you want to access your PlayStation 4 with Sony's super slick new portable.

Sony has announced the latest system software update for the PlayStation Vita. It's update 3.00 and adds a new application entitled PS4 Link, which allows Vita owners to connect to the PS4 console to access the Remote Play and Second Screen features.

The update also delivers fresh settings for photo taking, the ability to connect the Vita to the PS3 via Wi-Fi, and user interface changes to certain applications. We're not sure yet when the update will officially go live, but you have to expect it'll be soon. The PS4 is slated to launch on November 15 – that's next Friday – in North America, and on November 29 in Europe. It's really cool how one can use the Vita to interact with the PS3 and PS4, and it's a highlight of being a Vita owner.
