Hardly.  I think we were all at least expecting more PSP games to become compatible (although unofficially apparently this update is meant to fix the PSN+ Minis), at the very least.

 

Why can't we have Burnout Legends and Burnout Dominator when they "unofficially" work in the US?  The code can't possibly be that different from region to region on a portable console as it doesn't have PAL/NTSC issues, every PSP was identical hardware wise.

 

I certainly was hoping for mention of WiFi improvements as its driving me crazy how if I connect my Vita to my 802.11n network, I get around 6Mbit on the speed test, on my backup 802.11g router I get 5Mbit.

 

However in real-world usage downloading from the store I get around 1Mbit on my N network and 4Mbit on my G.  That makes absolutely no sense except that there is a major flaw with N networking on the Vita as my PHONE and laptop can both comfortably do 20MBit.

 

Mind you, its not like I ever get more than about 7Mbit on the PS3 from the store and that is wired, so I think the store has a speed limiter on it as downloads from elsewhere I can get 37Mbit wired.  But I would be happy to at least get a comparable speed on my Vita seeing as my WiFi can handle it on every other device.

I wonder when they'll FINALLY add PSOne Classics compatibility to the Vita's firmware.. I was hoping to bring FFIX with me on my Vita!

I personally wouldnt mind a update to allow the vita to access Video and Flash online through the browser (YouTube (Multi Billion £/$ company) and it doesbt work on the most powerful hand held gaming device! 

 

Only real issue i have

That's wishful thinking tbh. Mobile flash has been discontinued so there will never be another mobile device to support it. HTML 5 is the future :P and that'll take time.
