    So PlayStation®Store from PSP and Ad-Hoc mode over the internet through PS3 is through a firmware update not 3000 only right? If it is through an update then I'm happy :D

    look like a FW update will do it (psp and ps3 will need one)
    READ

    PSP will be seeing some major updates to its networking capabilities later this year. Sony Japan offered preliminary details today on what players can expect from future firmware updates.

    This Fall, PSP will gain direct access to the PlayStation Store. This long promised feature will allow for PSP users to download demos and more directly to the portable without having to go through the PS3 or PC.

    In Japan, Sony will commemorate the new PS Store-friendly PSP with the release of Mainichi Issyo Portable. The PS3 version of the Japan-only title is available as a free download, with Sony charging for items and gameplay modes that are added every month.

    Perhaps more significant than both these developments, Sony will be offering PSP players some new connectivity options thanks to a new service that further ties the portable with the PS3. This Fall, select PSP titles will allow players to go through the PS3 to take their ad-hoc multiplayer modes online. When playing in this fashion, the PS3 can be used for text and chat messaging and also for matching.

    Currently, Sony has confirmed that Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G will be compatible with this new service. In Japan, this is big news, as that title has sold over 2.4 million units.

    Other titles, as well as further details on the service, will be announced in the near future.

    Both these features will be compatible with all models of the PSP, from the original up to the new PSP-3000.
    so thePlayStation®Store
    and
    Ad-Hoc mode over the internet through PS3
    will work on ALL PSP

    Ad-Hoc feature seems pretty crazy, its kind of like X-link Kai with a PS3 (with the chat and all), I hope many games will support it.
