North American Firmware Version 2.0

Ok well, it?s still not out. It was previously reported on sites like IGN that users can expect the US firmware version 2.0 on August 12th. The last I checked it?s August 13th here, meaning it would be the 12th in the USA. However upon further investigation it seems that IGN and a few message boards are the only ones claiming this release on August 12th. Sony?s US Press Release site mentions nothing about US version 2.0 anywhere.

Furthermore, the US Sony System Update page still has 1.52 as the latest system software version. We still have plenty of day time left, maybe Sony is just taking their time.

UPDATE:

“The PSP Firmware 2.0 Upgrade for the North American market will be available during the week of August 15th, instead of on August 12, as previously reported.

Designed to compliment the comprehensive entertainment experience of games, movies, music, photos and wireless connectivity provided by the revolutionary portable device, the firmware 2.0 upgrade will allow users to take advantage of the unit?s built-in Wi-Fi capability and wirelessly search the Internet from Internet Access Points or hot spots. The firmware 2.0 upgrade will be available for download directly to a PSP using a Wi-Fi connection or downloaded to a PC from http://us.playstation.com/psp and transferred to a PSP through a USB cable.”
