Sony Releases PSP Firmware 2.71

Sony released Firmware 2.71 for the Sony PSP in Japan.

The new PSP firmware allows you to download game demos directly from the PSP web browser onto the memory stick. Currently available are the LocoRoco demo and a demo of Kazou (Sudoku game).

LocoRoco Review

Now that LocoRoco is remastered on PS4 and runs in native 4K on the PS4 Pro, there’s not much reason to go back and play the PSP version. But if you have a PS4 Pro and a 4K television, you should definitely check out LocoRoco. You will not be disappointed!

If anyone is a physical fan like myself, most if not all the PSP Remasters for PS4 got released in Japan/Hong Kong on disc and there's an English version of each. PS4's region-free so ordering from Play-Asia or eBay will work on your system.

I got the physical HK release last year. It works just like any other game but it's significantly more expensive than the digital version. I like physical games though so I thought it would be a neat novelty.

Top 10 Forgotten Sony Franchises

Alex S. from Link-Cable writes: "Gaming’s past is full of wonderful memories, many of which include some of our favorite moments in all of video games and helped shape our current gaming habits. And, thanks to the awesomeness that is the PlayStation, many of these memories can be found in Sony’s franchises. But what happens when a great franchise or IP just disappears? While sometimes its just forgotten, never to be heard from again that’s not something that we here at Link-Cable can bear the thought of. So for this week’s Top 10 we are taking a look at the Top 10 Forgotten Sony Franchises and also crossing our fingers that someone with the power to bring these back just happens to stumble across this list."

Don’t forget Dark Cloud, Rogue Galaxy, Legend of Dragoon, Freedom Wars, Invisimals, Lemmings, Modnation Racers, Pursuit Force, Resistance, Siren, Soul Sacrifice, Mark of Kri, & Wild Arms

darthv722291d ago

To be fair, many of those are not forgotten. They just ran their course while others were not given the respect they deserved to garner a continuation. Games that are one-offs probably had no intention of making them into series but I do wish they would rethink that. Some deserve to be given a follow-up.

UltraNova2291d ago

Agreed. Maybe Sony can contract Bluepoint to remaster Heavenly Sword, see people's reaction to the game and decide wether to give the go for a sequel.

Also Lair can be remastered es as a PSVR game and take it from there.

Legacy of Kain would fit right in there, although sony has no rights to that IP as far as I'm aware.

Ah later instalments were not sony exclusive, so dont mind me sir :p

Xenophon_York2291d ago

Remaking the very first Legacy of Kain: Blood Omen would be amazing.

MWH2291d ago (Edited 2291d ago )

Maybe one day the coin will land on its edge.

Michiel19892291d ago

I'd prefer Soul Reaver but Blood Omen would do just fine as well

Godmars2902291d ago

To be fair, Wild Arms did run its course, was effectively run into the ground, going by example of last entry using characters from all games. Being an STG title on the PSP.

Could always revive the western/steampunk setting.

_-EDMIX-_2290d ago

I know right! I'm still waiting for someone at Sony to make the Getaway 3 lol

I always wondered what the PlayStation 3 version was going to be like.

SuperSonic912290d ago

CTR Remake please. Best kart racer ever made by Naughty Dog

Rangerman12082290d ago

Finally someone mentioned Soul Sacrifice, Siren, Legend of Dragoon, and Freedom Wars. Those games are in desperate of a new installment. Especially with Folkore.

Sitdown2290d ago

Lemmings is a PlayStation franchise? I would say Battle Arena Toshinden.

frostypants2290d ago

Lemmings was a franchise waaaaay before even the PS1 saw the light of day. Nobody's forgotten it.

thisismyaccount2290d ago

and ALUNDRA .. dunno if it´s a Sony IP or not.

I'm not sure single games would be considered franchises. If you want to say Heavenly Sword is one, I'd also put Enslaved on the list. Loco Roco is in the same boat as Patapon. But things like Tomba are certainly missed.

GBG_Jason2291d ago

Never mind me, you are absolutely correct.

Kleptic2291d ago

yeah, it was the Ninja Theory (same dev as HS), just not a ps3 exclusive
