Anytime a Sony gaming platform's operating system is updated, it leads to much groaning and eye rolling, but the just released software update v.2.10 is actually handy.

Among other things, you can finally create folders, to help keep things relatively nice and tidy.

So if you're sick of seeing system specific icons, they can be tucked away, plus you can organize and assort that massive collection of games that's the cause of you constantly cycling page after page on the home screen.

Because, you know, the Vita has just that many games and all. Anyhow, here's the entire rundown of what version 2.10 does exactly, courtesy of the PlayStation Blog:

- Create folders to more easily manage your favorite application icons on the home screen, with up to 10 icons in each folder and a maximum of 100 on the home screen (including icons inside the folders).

- Verify which PS Vita card you are using by looking at the home screen’s info bar. You can also save the layout of your home screen icons in the memory card.

- Added video support allows you to play videos within the browser (memory card required; some videos are not supported).

- New email enhancements allows you to view HTML messages, add multiple email addresses to your contacts, and easily search your messages using the new search feature.

- PlayStation Plus members will be able to automatically update PlayStation Mobile format software and upload game save data onto online storage using 3G connection.

- New “Mute Automatically” option will mute your PS Vita speakers when your headset is unplugged and pause your music when using the music app.
