    Default PSP OFW v5.50 imminent

    Access to subfolders via PSP FTW.. hopefully we'll see M33 follow suit shortly after.

    PSP Firmware (v5.50) Update

    Posted by Eric Lempel // Director, PlayStation Network Operations
    Hi everyone, the next system software update (v5.50) for PSP (PlayStation Portable) will be available soon, and I wanted to provide you all with a preview of some of the key features.
    The firmware update will introduce an Information Board on the PSP system’s XMB (XrossMediaBar) interface. Those of you who have a PLAYSTATION 3 (PS3) may be familiar with this feature, which displays news and updates from the world of PlayStation in a scrolling ticker in the upper right-hand corner of your TV screen. Now you’ll be able to read up-to-date information about upcoming games, new content available on PlayStation Store, and other news right on your PSP whenever you’re at a wireless Internet hotspot.
    In addition, we’ll be adding a few more enhancements with the 5.50 update:

    • Memory Stick improvements – You’ll be able to create and access sub-folders on your Memory Stick PRO Duo for music, videos and photos. Separately, the available space required to download a file from PlayStation Store to your Memory Stick has been reduced significantly.
    • Internet search for games directly from the XMB – You’ll be able to easily search the Internet for information about your PSP games. Select the icon for the game, hit the Triangle button, and then select [Internet Search] from the options menu to get search results based on the game title. This feature was added to PS3 with the recent 2.70 update.
    • Trend Micro trial – PSP’s Internet browser is a great tool for checking out your favorite Web sites on the go, and we’re teaming up with the Internet security experts at Trend Micro to make the Web browsing experience safer and more secure. With the 5.50 update, you’ll have the option to access a free trial of two Trend Micro services:
      1. Trend Micro Web Security uses Web reputation technology to block PSP owners from accidentally visiting a Web site that may contain malicious content designed to steal personal information and confidential data.


      1. Trend Micro Kids’ Safety uses URL filtering technology to prevent children from accessing Web sites that feature inappropriate content.

    We look forward to reading your feedback.

    Thanks for moving, I wasn't sure where to put this. I really hope there is an M33 release.

    Yea, but on a plus note for older PSPs this gives ample time for M33 to take a look into 5.50, since we'll have a string of decent games coming out in the future-I gaurantee that Sony wouldnt release any high end titles on the current OFW, due to the exploits.

    I hope D_A puts out a 5.50 M33.

    That means I won't have to load irshell just to put a game from a zip/rar into PSP/GAME... That is if they enable the opening of zips/rars, lol, if not, I suppose it should be possible to make a plugin allowing that...

    That is of course of 5.50M33 is made...

    There'd be no good reason for someone on official firmware to want to load .zip or .rar files, compressing images or videos in a .rar doesn't sound as much needed as someone who wants to compress a 1.6gb ISO.

    Would love if they connected trophies to your PSN account on both your PSP and PS3, damn that'd be so cool!

    I'd imagine with the new Game Search feature, a lot of funny things will happen, like someone will use game search on, say, FFVIII:Crisis Core and one of the top links will be a rapidshare link to the download of that game. Haha.

    As far as the Trend Micro - pointless. I find it funny though, on the PS3 version, sites like PSP-Hacks and PS3-Hacks are blocked due to safety concerns.

    Anyways, interesting update. Hope a 5.50m33 comes along.

    Just out of curiousity, why does everyone sound so skeptic of an M33...? Was D_A declaring that he's done? I'm asking out of all seriousness.
