Hi, everyone, I wanted to give you a quick heads up that a new PSP firmware update, v5.03, will be released soon. This is a small update that improves system software stability during use of some features.

Ok, everytime you post about PSP updates I ask for the ability to take screenshots when ever we want, to be honest I am tired of asking for it how about you just implement it and I wont ask for anything else PSP related again. Does that sound like a fair deal?

Screen shot ability for when ever we want, playing music, videos, internet, games, anytime anywhere please.

WISH LIST FOR PSP and PS3

PSP and PS3 – I Agree with Screen Shoots for “PSP” and for “PS3″ anytime anywere.

PS3 – Voice Cross Chat to at least 4 people on a Phone Chat.. kinda like HOME but would beable to do what we want while on the PS3 Phone.

PS3 – Skype Added to PS3 Please!

“Screen Shot Ability for when ever we want, playing music, videos, internet, games, anytime anywhere please.”

——————————————-
PSP – And to add…. were is the US GPS for PSP.
——————————————-

PSP – Add some more Divx Support for us also!

Add the friends list to the PSP.

I agree you would hope their would be some small bit of functionality apart from just a security patch.

Well I don’t really mind but I am hoping this also means that a nice big patch will also be coming along for the PS3 that will fix that dang remote play problem that most people have with the PS3 turning on automatically when used via the internet.

Personally I’m just hoping for anything that isn’t just a fix for something that is broken. Maybe a fix or fixes and some form of additonal functionality.

+ FreePlay on January 19th, 2009 at 5:53 pm said:

Hey, Sony. How about cutting us a break? There is no security THREAT here. The security flaw requires you to knowingly and manually put files on your memory stick. Isn’t it a bit disingenuous to claim that you’re being helpful?

Will there be a PS3 update?

+ Stoffinator on January 19th, 2009 at 6:03 pm said:

Why do people ask if it includes anything else? If it did, don’t you think they’d say so?

Eric just wanted to let you know that we as psp/ps3 owners are still highly hoping for IN-GAME MUSIC… not that crappy patch that obviously NO DEV is using.. we mean IN ALL Games.. you know how cool it is to play Stardust HD or Wipeout listening to coldplay or jack johnson don’t let us down Eric please.. you can do it

Anyone who wants to mod their PSP, do not update past 5.02.

Come on! In-Game Chat for PS3

+ SantanaClaus89 on January 19th, 2009 at 6:26 pm said:

If you guys actually released some good PSP games people wouldn’t be worried about hacking thier PSPs and you wouldn’t have to worry about “security patches.”

Something to think about.

Security updates FTW!!!

Right on it’s always good to have the PSP up 2 date

lol I was at the mall the other day abd I went to the Sony store and asked an employee there if there was an update in the works and also I asked him what game i should buy for the PSP

and he answered me with

“Do what I did and go get your PSP chiped because there isn’t anything big coming up for the PSP”

I return this to some people on here: Maybe if so many people didn’t hack their PSP they would actually bother to release good games for it.

+ GanjaQueen on January 19th, 2009 at 6:49 pm said:

Aww, you guys got my hopes up…..:(

It be nice if you guys ‘updated’ the browser on the PSP (and PS3, for that matter). Especially making it capable to check out Youtube on (like you did with the PS3). But know if we’re gonna get a PS3 update would be even better….when’s the last time we had one, December?

Oh and yeah, a screenshot option would sound kick [DELETED] (I’m a show off, I like showing what themes I’m rocking, lol).

They were making poor games before we ever hacked the system.

We’ve been able to do that for awhile now, its called IRSHELL, and Screenshot.prx
:)
ps, I have 5.00 M33-4

Irshell does allow you to play music during any game, and screenhot plugin (dunno which specific one i have) can do that in game and or the vsh menu(xmb dash)

I can also play youtube, google video+20 other video sites on my psp, download them, play games off the memory, can NEVER brick it because i can easily and have made a pandora battery on the fly with a few button presses.

and on top of that can use the 4th brightness lvl, have a special hold plugin that reduces every to lowest (cpu/bus leds) to conserve power when in hold, and have a cheat menu and being able to rais or lower the cpu/bus at any time..+lots of other features.

phew, yes, enabling homebrew really is worth it imo.

Sony does not care about implementing the features we actually want. They care about whatever can make them more money. PS3-PSP connectivity – sells systems! PSN store! PREMIUM THEMES!

Ugh.

It’s a new quarter, time for another big PS3 update.

+ xcaba on January 19th, 2009 at 6:59 pm said:

all i want in my psp is the following
-flash player 8+
-friends section on the psp
-multi feature at once ex playing your music while browsing the internet or playing a game
-gameplay recording and snapshots
-also for sony to consider atleast one of these ideas

What I really want for the PS3 Firmware is the ability to upgrade my hard drive and and be able to keep my trophies on the PS3. I know they stay on my PSN account but I want to still be able to look at them on the PS3. You guys should be able to do this without people being able to exploit it. I need to upgrade SO BAD but I don’t want to lose my trophies on my PS3. Please fix this.

Yeah, WipEout Pure has nothing on that Pong homebrew game.

ERIC LEMPEL
The message system sucks for your friends list if you got a message while u are offline you never know unless you scroll down to your offline friends. And you never know you got a friend invite til you scroll down. There should be a universal message box that also better so PSN can send downtime messages like what they do on LIVE. Also like I’ve mentioned before add the friend request to the top so that we can see them.

+ drdre74 on January 19th, 2009 at 7:09 pm said:

anyway we can get Home on the PSP or trophies patched in or better yet a friends list?

You probably could’ve picked a better game to demonstrate your point, but suffice it to say that WipEout Pure has nothing on PSP Revolution :)

I agree with jakinov. The message list and friends request does need to be worked on. Evn if its as simple as the message box turns red or something to let you know you have mail with a number or something next to it letting you know you have multiple emails or request. I’ve had people send me a game request or something and i don’t see it for hours or a few days later. And please make PS3 to PSP remote play over the internet work. I’ve tried two psps and two different routers and its never worked.
