PSP gamers tired of battery sapping UMDs may soon have their prayers for legal downloadable games answered.
A line of code discovered in the latest firmware update by homebrew ninja Dark_Alex hints at the potential for the PSP to load encrypted ISO images off a memory stick. This could pave the way for Sony to release a full digital download service for games, but might just as easily be something much less show stopping – it is all speculation for now.
Having said that, news that Dark_Alex hung up his homebrew kit for the last time yesterday does seem slightly coincidental, especially as E3 is just over one week away. We hate to get all 'there was no lunar landing' on you, but could it be that the prolific Mr Alex turned up something that Sony doesn't want anyone to know about quite yet?
