Version 2.80 of the Sony PSP firmware came out yesterday, so I installed it today. Sure, every new version of the firmware breaks the homebrew/hacked software that people have figured out how to run, but I never got into using that, and there have been just enough features in the firmware updates that Sony has put out (a web browser, podcast support, game demos, etc.) to draw me down the upgrade path.
The 2.80 firmware went on without a hitch. I installed the game demos for Mercury Meltdown (and Loco Roco, which I meant to grab when 2.70 came out, but never did), and subscribed to a video podcast to test it out (Ask a Ninja, of course ;-)).
You can find a couple more photos I took during the upgrade (of the Mercury Meltdown demo, Ask a Ninja, etc.) in this photo set on Flickr.
I’ll play around with it some more, and post anything interesting. Anyone else out there take the plunge? What do you think?
