Rumor: 3.0 beta firmware from YourPSP?
Two tipsters sent in two different links showing the same image of a YourPSP member supposedly receiving a 3.0 firmware "beta." kedar pancholi sent a link in from MAXCONSOLE and wraggster sent a link in from DCemu. The firmware is supposed to include support for GIF, MOV, WMV and FLV files, and support for PSone emulation. Sounds too good to be true, right? Well, I'm going to say this is a fake. Why? There's no reason to "beta" test something unless it has significant online capabilities. And, Sony isn't stupid enough to let a "beta" firmware out, one that could be ripe with potential security holes.

Most things here could be explained either way, but here's one for you. Where is the NDA? People in the industry know what I mean, and Sony certainly does!

(And the guy who posted before me, if you check the link he posted you'll see it actually has the hoax guy admitting it...)

If anyone wanted to fake it why would they photoshop it when they could print out the letter, case cover and cd label and at least make it look real!

Yeah it fake, you can't public beta firmware due to the feact if a glitch is found......Sony would have ...some more legal issues. Also GAP would have got it before MYPSP/ Not to mention the case is using regular paper.
