Just got a build of Shin Megami Tensei: Persona and it came with brand new firmware. The disc had a mandatory update to PSP Firmware 5.55. The last public update was PSP Firmware 5.51, which came out in June.
Something to do with PSP GO I presume.
i do not see any reasons to be excited about it. i am waiting for PSP GO.
Maybe it's to prepare for the PSP Go.
So will the firmware actually be useful?
It stops piracy at the moment all the newer games will require 5.55.
Sony needs to launch a new browser for the PSP(s) like Opera browser. So sad to see new constumers buying an expensive PSP Go and then while checking the system's web browser they will notice it is almost useless and ultra SLOW and bugged.
Yeah, because i'm buying a PSP Go for the web browser.. owait, no i'm not.
'idiealot - 7 hours ago It stops piracy at the moment all the newer games will require 5.55. ' Uh, will it? I think 4.00 also was meant to do that, even as all the other firmwares. Dark Alex will decrypt the fw within days and the custom firmware PSP's can even upgrade from their current 5.00 m33 fw through WiFi which takes its update from the hackers servers instead of Sony's original fw server. So nope, it won't But the PSP 3000 protection is pretty good, no custom firmware that is flashed on it at the moment...
