It’s been announced and confirmed, Sony will be releasing firmware version 2.0 in Japan on July 27th. This will be a huge release for Sony and may have a big impact on the homebrew scene with the pile of people who are sure to update to 2.0
The firmware 2.0 will bring us pile of features including WPA wireless encryption (YES!!), a built in web browser (DOUBLE YES!!), AAC and Wave audio support, and an increase of features for the video player.
I personally can’t wait for this to appear in the US and Canada.. although upgrading to it will be a hard decision to make. Should I update to get all the new functionality but lose the ability to play homebrew? Or should I keep my homebrew playing ability and miss out on a sweet built in web browser… decisions decisions :)
