    Default Rumour: PSP Firmware 5.0 (Beta) Available for Developers

    According to the fine folks over at pspgen, Sony has issued firmware version 5.0 beta to legitimate PSP developers. This will of course allow commercial developers to adapt and ready their games for the next major firmware revision. Per the moment, the details are somewhat scarce…

    For starters, pspgen reports firmware 5.0 will include these three updates:

    1. Direct access to the PlayStation Store
    2. A new RSS reader
    3. An integrated “snapshot” tool; similar to FuSa screenShoot (?)

    And that’s all we know for now… With respect to a release date, that also remains unknown. It’s speculated to hit around October with the release of the PSP-3000. Whatever the case, I certainly hope 5.0 sports a little more bang than those 3 specifics.
    This is the first time ive heard of sony releasing a beta build of one of their firmwares i have a feeling new games coming out after the launch of the 3000 will require the 5.0 right out of the box

    I have to agree. Though the pics look genuine I could easily make mine say the same thing.
    Interested in my games or my friends games?

    If this is real, the features in it a good, though lets hope that they add more to make it a more epic update then 4.00

    4.20 (haha 420) might be just like 3.60 was on the slim.
