Together with the PS4 system software update 2.50, Sony also released the 3.50 update for the PS Vita to improve remote play, but the points in common between the two updates aren’t limited to that.

Among the patch notes, which you can read below, we can find the addition of Accessibility controls, and those are basically identical to the ones provided with the PS4.

Probably the most relevant feature is the ability to customize controls system-wide, changing any button with any other.

This is definitely a great addition for those gamers that require special controls and visual aids to enjoy their games.

On top of that, it’s also good for those who want to customize the controls when it’s not possible. What’s not to love?
