Finally, after months of speculation and rumors, Sony has finally released details about the upcoming PSP firmware 3.00. The firmware is due for release a few days after the release of the PS3. Upon release of the PS3, a firmware update will also be available upgrading the firmware of the PS3 to Firmware 1.10. This is to enable the connectivity between the PSP and the PS3.
According to Sony, Firmware 3.00 for the PSP will include:
- Strengthen security
- PS3 Connectivity
- Access to the PlayStation Store
Some of you may be wondering about the PS1 emulator, but as far as we know, Sony has included no information about it in this update. This leads us to believe that either the PS1 emulator is not yet ready for public release, or Sony is still planning to release it in Firmware 3.00 but forgot to mention it.
How much longer do we have to wait for the PS1 emulator. It’s the only thing that’s can come between me and homebrew!
i’m getting tired of all this… i,ve been waiting for 3.00 months ago… now i don’t have patience to wait a few days more to get this update!! i am going to get cracked on myself!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
dammit.. i have 2.80
im waiting for downgrader or 3.00… cant wait..
i have PSP’s on my dreams now..
I’m starting to think Sony is going to make it worth my while to update, assuming many things though like the possibility of them giving us homebrew.
Why can’t Sony just make the PSP “Open Platform” like the PS3. It solves so many problems for Sony by not having to release quick fixes for every exploit found.
The firmware was supposed to start releasing around the 11th, and its obveously not out yet, so some information was either wrong again, or a delay due to an exploit being found, or they just want to keep the anticipation up, to get as many people to update as possible, thinking this is going to be the best update yet. I am not so enthusiastic about it.
damn nov 14 and still no update! im not sure if i will update. im gonna wait for a downdater for 2.80! i saw some pictures of the 3.00 and its a different layout. maybe, maybe not?
