Update #2: As of today (7/27/05) PSP Firmware v2.00 (JAP) is officially available for download. However, at this time we do NOT recommend upgrading to v2.00 as you will no longer be able to run PSP homebrew on your v1.00/1.50 units.

Update: IGN has now made available a video of PSP Firmware v2.00 in action depicting a user navigating to a Web site, downloading a file, and then playing it. In addition, it also appears as though the official Portable TV Web site has gone live- cool stuff!
