Firmware 5.0 for the Sony PlayStation Portable is now out and available for downloading. Hooray!
Firmware 5.0 for the Sony PlayStation Portable is now out and available for downloading. Thanks to all the readers who told us about it. The big thing in FW 5.0 is the addition of direct access to the PlayStation Store.
Also new in this update are a full-size on-screen keyboard, a sleep timer that users can enable during music playback, and the ability to use the PSP Slim’s video out feature to display PSOne titles at full screen resolution depending on the TV the Slim is connected to.
QJ.NET reader AshTR also clued us in on the following additions included in the changelog:
- The system will automatically change to USB mode when a USB cable is connected.
- The [Original] theme has been redesigned.
