    At the launch the European psp won't have any firmware installed, the firmware will be on the demo disc and not already installed. So you can download the 1.50 firmware from the net and install it :D that's really good news 8)

    Are u sure, can u give a link? I think it will be like the Australian launch, most PSPs come with 1.52, but the 2.00 update is on the UMD Sampler

    It's probably not as much BS as you might think. 2.0 was only announced recently, let alone released. It is highly possible that rather than collecting all the pre built PSPs in the warehouses waiting for European/AUS distrubution and patching them all up to 2.0, they might as well just add it to the demo UMD disc and let the customer upgrade. I'm willing to bet that only those PSPs made after the release date of 2.0 will have 2.0 firmware, and those made before it (awaiting Euro distrubution) will be mostly 1.52, some 1.51 and maybe for those lucky few 1.5 (but of those lucky few, I'm betting 80-90% of them upgrade to 2.0 on the day they get it, just to get the browser working).

    Think, if your a PSP newbie, seeing a sliver of paper in your PSP instructing you to install the firmware to use the "awesome" browser, you wont think twice. 1.5 or what ever.

    ya that will happen because it will cost sony to much money to update all the psp's and it will also delay the launch so a umd updater is a good idea for them
    btw on sony's website it shows 3 ways to update ur psp 1 wifi 2 download 3 off a umd and in tiny type under the 3rd one it says that it will only download the update on a 1.52 version psp

    i think that the firmware is probably 1.52 on the euro psps. $ony isn't patching all the psps w/ 2.0, but they sure as hell dont have 1.5 on them.

    exactly b/c sony already stoped making 1.5 so why would they make them for the euro launch lol plus the whole part that 1.52 is the only version that can be updated with a umd
