PSP-3000 Includes Preloaded Firmware 4.20, USB Auto-Connect


289w ago - Eurogamer has uncovered that the PSP-3000, scheduled for release next week, comes with PSP Firmware 4.20 preloaded... for reference, the latest officially released Sony PSP Firmware is currently v4.05.

In addition, the updated system software revision includes a "USB Auto-Connect" option that automatically begins charging the PSP within the XMB when a USB cable is inserted.

To quote: Elsewhere, our side-by-side comparison of the current PSP/PSP-2000 firmware, 4.05, and the new 4.20 firmware on the PSP-3000 reveals a "USB Auto-Connect" option, which promises to automatically switch the handheld to USB mode when a cable is connected.

It will do this from anywhere on the XMB, but it won't interrupt gameplay. Nor does the PSP charge from USB during gameplay, although - as of the original Slim & Lite revision - it will do so while in USB mode.

The thing still has legs especially considering the mods that can be done to it now. It has room for improvement though, and could really challenge the ipod touch market if done right (and if you ignore itunes). True, But having only 1 analog stick annoys me. Also it need's R3 and L3 buttons.

I just bought a PSP-2000 series. To be honest. I think Sony should just come out with the PSP2-1000.

However knowing Sony they will want the graphics better then the PS2, so they may not be able to do that yet.
