    Exclamation European PSP Firmware Version Confirmed

    When the PSP will gracefully reach Europe on the 1st of September, it will be using the latest 2.0 Firmware. Quoted here:

    "European consumers who have waited for the PSP are being rewarded for their patience, because the latest models will incorporate Sony's recently-announced 2.0 firmware upgrade. This addition adds a Web browser, the ability to transfer digital still photos between PSPs through a wireless connection, support for more image formats (TIFF, BMP, GIF, PNG) and support for two additional music audio formats, WAV and AAC. Also, the new PSPs will allow video downloading in the MPEG4 AVC format, providing a platform for Web-based vendors to offer TV shows and other content."

    So I hope that clears up any further posts on this topic. And for the questions regarding whether the PAL PSPs will play homebrew/iso's is atm unlikely, unless someone releases a homebrew loader/iso's for the 2.0 firmware. Atm, there hasnt been one for the 1.52, let alone the 2.0, so keep your fingers crossed.

    thanks for that news, ive tried 2.0 and it isnt all that bad, actually pretty decent, but imo its not enough to warrant an update. wish sony would let us enjoy the best of both worlds cause i want a decent web browser and my usual homebrew.

    I'm in Australia and PSP's come out here on Sept 1 aswell, but we're only getting 1.52 firmware. Strange!

    PAL is the 50hz European video standard, to be contrasted with the 60hz NTSC standard. PAL offers more lines of resolution, but the screen flickers horribly from the decreased refreshed rate.

    As the PSP has the same screen worldwide, it makes no sense to use the PAL designation. Instead, European releases should just be "EUR".

    Check out www.yourpsp.com.au / http://www.yourpsp.com.au/psp.html#i...l&locale=en_au

    Comes up with info about firmware 2.0 and the browser, I'm still thinking it'll be 2.0 @ release. Should have asked them last night @ the retailer Night.

    regardless of which firmware version it is, it wont be homebrew capable which is unfortunate.
