Sony bans PSP homebrew talk; violates license agreement

100°
360w ago - SCEA has stated on the Official Playstation boards that discussion of PSP homebrew and hacking is BANNED. SCEA state that homebrew applications void the warranty of the PSP and an official area to discuss such features can not be provided. The following topics are banned - custom firmware themes, applications, custom animation/sounds and other materials made available only through the use of homebrew applications. Basically EVERYTHING related to PSP homebrew/hacking is banned, anyone that ignores their policy will be banned and considered for other 'disciplinary actions' as determined by their admins. The official Playstation boards were FULL of homebrew discussion incase you didn't know!

To quote: "Homebrew applications void the warranty of the PSP®(PlayStation®Portable) system, and an official area to discuss such activities cannot be provided by SCEA. Any postings that are clearly homebrew-related, such as those providing instructions on downgrading firmware updates, will be removed from this board. This also includes, but is not limited to, the following topics:

• themes, applications, custom bootup animations/sounds, and other materials made available only with use of homebrew
• programs that may be used to aid or facilitate copyright violations (such as Eboots,...
 

PSP Slim and Lite Firmware Dumped!

360w ago - To quote: "What's that? The new firmware on the PSP Slim and Lite has been dumped in less than 24 hours, by none other than Dark_AleX.

How was this done? That'll remain a secret, but considering there is no firmware 3.60 EBOOT even available, you can draw the line from there.

Alex has no intention of releasing details on how to dump the firmware at this point, due to the fact he is retired from the scene after all, but at the very least it will offer inspiration to other homebrew teams such as M33 and Wildc*rd."

360w ago - Sony announced in a press release on Wednesday that the newly updated PSP 2000 is in stores now from $169.

PSP "Slim" (or 2000 as it's officially called) in stores now
The revamped units, first unveiled at E3 2007, are 33 percent lighter and 19 percent slimmer than original models. HD video and audio out have been added in addition to optimized memory for reduced loading times.

"PSP sales have soared since we introduced the $169.99 price point in April, and that momentum will only continue with the launch of the newly designed PSP," said Jack Tretton, president of Sony Computer Entertainment of America amid criticisms that the handheld lacks compelling software.

The redesigned PSP comes in three models; Piano Black for $169, a Ceramic White Star Wars bundle for $199, and the Ice Silver Daxter Entertainment bundle for $199.

An estimated 23 million PSP units have been sold worldwide compared to 49 million DS units.

360w ago - Brunni has updated MasterBoy for PSP, which is an all-in-one emulator that supports a variety of handhelds including the Game Boy, Sega Master System and Game Gear.

Download: MasterBoy v2.02

New version of MasterBoy:

- EBOOT now has icon, wallpaper and sound (thanks to Ass-Itch from playeradvance for his nice BG/ICON)
- Corrected the bug of SRAM not saving properly for some people
- Added the last save date next to the save state slot number
- Enhanced SGB emulation (runs a lot faster)
- Corrected the garbage showing in the border of the render.
- Reworked the default palettes to be closer to the GBC ones.
- Augmented the maximum number of files per folder to 1024.

Note: The bug that some people has, save states not working after saving/loading a few, is still not fixed (I could contact nobody who has this problem for debugging). In between, if you have this problem, use the RAM state and save manually before exiting (or save less often ).
