Rumored PSP OFW 4.00 Change Log

Just a few hours after I made my wishlist for the upcoming PSP firmware version 4.00, psp4lyf has managed to obtain the actual romoured change log and started another thread over at the PSPMod forums. His original source is the ConsoleSpot Network forums, whose source is “some psp people who work closely with team C+D and DAX”. The validity such a long chain should be taken with a grain of salt, so it is possible that there will be other features or no 4.00 at all! But to calm the conspiracy theoriests, there is a picture of a PSP screen with the update installer. Of course, such an installer icon is easy to create, so it is very probably that this is a fake

I am posting the rumored change log, because it is an interesting list of features that could be added to the PSP. I do not believe that it is the real change log, so I am only treating it as another wishlist. It only contains one feature that I want, Flash 9 support. Judging from what I seen so far, that is the most requested new feature. Hopefully Sony is aware of it too, so I think that it is very likely to be included in 4.00. Also it adds support for Real Media and QuickTime media files, both of which are properiaty codecs. I think they would be a great addition to the video media player, but I think for music files OGG would be a much better choice.

  • PLAYSTATION 3 Network titles can be played under PSP [Remote Play] under Game. The PSP is then used as a monitor for any game playable in Playstation 3 game console.

    WTF the card in a psp is 802.11B you cant make it a 802.11G with firmware updates.

      There have been rumors that the PSP already contains the required hardware for the G protocol, but Sony disabled it to conserve battery life just like with the 333Hz CPU. So we just have to wait and see…. :)
