PSP Firmware 4.01 tomorrow, features Improved Video Playback

50°
325w ago - Sony's Eric Lempel, director of PlayStation Network operations, has sent word that PSP Firmware 4.01 is scheduled to be released soon. The update will include two main changes, the latter being improved video playback for certain file types.

* Display of search results under Internet Search has been improved for certain languages.
* Playback of video content under Video has been improved for certain file types.

It would be nice to know which file types... Does this mean DivX and XviD format files will finally be playable through the PSP's built-in video player?

Maybe, but if so, you'd think Sony would at least mention it, instead of vaguely stating that compatibility has been improved. Either way, we'll find out for sure when the Firmware is released.

325w ago - To quote Lestrade, Community Team Leader at the European PlayStation Forums:

PLAYSTATIONŽNetwork Downtime - Tuesday 24 June, 15:00-20:10 BST

The PLAYSTATION Network will be offline for 5 hours today from 3pm BST (4pm CEST) for maintenance work. It's pretty much all behind-the-scenes work and is, most definitely, not the 2.4 System Software update. Sorry, you need to wait a little longer for that one!

During this maintenance, the following online services may not be available:

- PSN account registration,
- PSN account sign-in,
- PSN account management,
- PlayStation Store purchases,
- online gaming, unless you are already logged in at 3pm
- forum login

In related news, self-proclaimed Sony employee Knight613 from GameFAQs states that PS3 Firmware v2.40 was supposed to come out on June 18th, but a bad error was found and needed fixing. Now the date is very early July (1st to 3rd), and the RC release is already ready... so it's just a matter of time.

To quote: 2.40 was supposed to come out June 18th actually... till they found a pretty bad error with the XMB and had to fix it. New date is supposedly July 2ndish,...
 

MSX Emulator for PSP updated to fMSX PSP v3.5.3

50°
325w ago - Uberjack has released a maintenance update to fMSX, an MSX series emulator for PSP that supports both MSX and MSX2 cartridge files.

Version 3.5.3 includes a single bug fix and an additional feature which saves ROM type settings between loading sessions, as detailed in the changelog provided below.

Download: fMSX PSP v3.5.3 for CFW 3.X / fMSX PSP v3.5.3 for FW 1.5

Changelog:

* Games/applications that require MSX Audio/MSX Music will no longer crash the emulator if either is disabled in System settings - there will simply be no Y2413/YM8950 audio (PSG and SCC will still render as usual, however)
* ROM type settings are now saved between sessions - up to 500 different ROM's can be tracked by CRC32 value. This adds a slight loading delay when the emulator starts up, as well as a saving delay when the emulator exits (if any changes are made during the session)

The author notes that the aforementioned feature is still experimental and is welcoming any feedback that users may have.

Call of Duty: World at War First Look for PS3

100°
326w ago - I'm sure that every PS3 player (even Xbox 360) are looking forward to the release of the next in the CoD series, which is Call of Duty: World at War...

The developers of the game stated that this game is unique compared to their early releases. The campaign will revolve around the pacific side of the world, and then the story will obviously take place there.

And of course, watch out for some new weapons and features of this game.

To quote: Last year's Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare was more that just a great game. It took a series that made a name for itself under the rich tapestry of World War II and pushed it some 60 years into the future. The end result was a game that used the latest advances in weaponry, in a setting influenced by some of today's most tense conflicts, to produce an experience both stirring and refreshing.

Since then, the big question on everyone's mind has been this: What will they do with the fifth Call of Duty? The answer, we know now, is a return to World War II. But rather than a step backward, Call of Duty: World at War is shaping up to be a unique take on this familiar timeline. With part of the campaign set in the often-overlooked Pacific theatre and plenty of inspiration drawn from Modern Warfare--both technical and creative--developer Treyarch is aiming...
