PS3 update 4.78 and PS Vita update 3.57 are now live and ready for your downloading pleasure. Neither update is required to continue gaming though some select titles might be affected by it. Seeing how both updates are fairly small (PS3 – 206MB & PS Vita 137MB), I’d recommend just getting them out of the way to ensure you don’t have any problems going forward.
However unlike other updates that are either vague like ‘bug fixes and system improvements’ or specific where they bring on a host of new features, both updates here are designed to remove functionality from the PS3 and PS Vita. More after the jump.
Great news PlayStation Vita and PlayStation TV owners. After months of “it’s coming soon,” Sony is officially bringing PlayStation Now subscriptions to the PS Vita and PS TV. Till now, you could use PlayStation Now on a per-rental basis, meaning you could rent individual games. Starting today, alongside that option, you’ll also be able to sign up or use your PlayStation Now subscription, which gives you access to more than 100 games for one price.
Details await you after the jump.

In a move that only Sony/PlayStation could pull off, PlayStation TV, the companion device which allows you to stream PS4 games, and play PlayStation Vita games on your television will not support PlayStation Vue, the streaming TV service from Sony. Yes, PlayStation TV won’t support Sony’s PlayStation television streaming initiative. After you’re done shaking your head, meet us after the jump for some more head shaking.
