The PSP Firmware 5.00 update will add direct PlayStation Store access to the system, eliminating the Need for PSP to be connected to a PC or PS3 to download content. PSP owners will be able to download games, demos, trailers, and other game-related content anytime and anywhere that their PSP is connected to the Internet via Wi-Fi. This functionality delivers on the portable promise of PSP, making the device even more compelling for gaming and entertainment on-the-go.
Additional enhancements delivered through PSP 5.00 will include:
• On-screen keyboard - A full-size, on-screen keyboard will be added to make text entry during Web browsing easier and more convenient.
• Sleep timer - During music playback, a sleep timer will enable users to shut off their PSP after a specified amount of time.
• Video-out - The PSP-2000's video-out feature will be able to display PlayStation format software (classics titles) at the full-screen size of the TV that the PSP is connected to; the feature will also support interlace displays.
