    Read this on the homepage by an anonymous poster, so take it with a grain of salt, was just wondering if anyone can confirm any of this bs here:


    "3.00 Firmware will include disability to upgrade for people who tend to stick with 1.5-2.71 firmware. Users who have those firmware will have to present Sony a legitimate receipt of a very current purchase. UMD games will also implement encryption to prevent ripping, making it only readable and will not transmit data through USB. Future games will also require to have current firmware checking monthly using the PSPs Wi-Fi capability which will have to be initiated by a weekly basis. Sony will request game sellers to allow gamers to update in their stores for the weekly update check.

    can i say BS?

    We hav the right to choose not to update. Sony never state that all the PSP owners must stay in the latest firmware in their Terms of Use rite?

    Current firmware Monthly checking??? through wifi? we can sue Sony for collecting user information without permission. :)

    no every1 has wifi thus that wouldnt really work, undoubtedly 3.0 will have a ton of new encryption and as time goes by it will be harder to play newer games and also emulate higher firmware but with not much being confirmed by sony its mostly speculation at present

    Waldog, it was a random post on the homepage, one of the comments in the VNC news. I knew it had to be bs, but there were quite a few things in it, just wanted to know if any of it had been heard anywhere else. The quotation is literally everything there was.
