PSP Firmware 6.0 Beta is Available for Developers

200°
260w ago - The PSP Go release date just around the corner, and it seems Sony is pretty determined to prevent the hacking community from tinkering with their brand new handheld by releasing various firmware updates.

French site PSPGen is reporting that Sony has already released a brand new Beta version of PSP Firmware 6.0 for official developers to test their games and adapt with the brand new firmware.

Sony previously included a mandatory install of OFW 5.55 for some titles that prevents Custom Firmware users in playing the game.

Then, during last week's GamesCom, another firmware 5.70 was spotted inside the PSP Go during a testing event. According to PSPGen, they're still on the process of learning the changes of the OFW 6.0, to quote- roughly translated:

The Beta firmware 6.00 is now available to official developers to test and adapt games in progress on this new version that will equip our PSP in some time (who said the October 1 release of the PSP Go?).
 

Sony: PSP Go Firmware Prevents Piracy, Unable to Rip Games

650°
260w ago - Sony's John Koller has stated that the PSP Go has new firmware which precludes piracy and won't allow anyone to rip games.

He added that there is now no external battery either, which is part of the 'protections' for the system.

To quote: "We've had a lot of success with the 3000," Koller says when I bring up the issue. While the earlier models of the PSP were incredibly easy to use with ripped or downloaded games, the PSP Go is going to make things tougher on the pirates.

"You won't be able to rip your games and play them on the system, the firmware precludes that," Koller explained. "There's no external battery, so there's a number of protections put into place on the system."

Although this is sure to protect the PSP Go, this may come of as one slight downfall for the PSP Go now. When that battery starts to wear down, that means sending that sexy device to sony for a couple of weeks with a fee.

PSP Firmware 5.55 Spotted on a Demonstration Unit

100°
268w ago - During a visit to the Japan Expo, French site PSPGen had access to a PSP with Firmware 5.55 installed.

Apparently it was on one of the PSP demonstration units that were used to showcase Soulcalibur Broken Destiny.

Could this be the next PSP Firmware update, and if so what changes will be included?

To quote, roughly translated: Traveling at the Japan Expo, one of our editors (KaiserCz) to have access to a PSP (Fat), on which he could test Soul Calibur IV, but this is not what we'll talk.

He was surprised to find on the PSP a firmware 5.55. Nothing new has been found, however, the search has not been very extensive.

Several assumptions can be made. Is this a firmware with a simple security update? Firmware available only through a UMD (as in 5.05 The Idolm @ ster)? Picture from 5.55

The traditional Wait & See is required. Thank you to KaiserCz.
