The over-abundance of PSP firmware upgrades has frustrated even the mainstream media. Quite possibly inspired by my own list of grievances
, IGN wrote up a letter to Sony
detailing what they'd like to see in future firmware releases. Their requests included the integration of the PlayStation Network and Store into the PSP, media support, and enhanced Remote Play functionality. Wait, that sounds almost exactly
like what I wanted! Truth is, many PSP fans want the same things out of our system. IGN's readers
sent in a few of their ideas:
- "I would love to see homebrew accepted through the psp firmware."
- "PDF. E-Books are a happy thing, escpecially [sic] if you want to use your PSP at school or work without getting beaten."
- "Folders within Folders would be an awesome feature, I love categorizing my music in certain ways, such as Metal, Rock, Video Games, and beyond that folders for individual bands, and if nessesary, another level for albums."
- "I want to be able to send Mp3s/WMAs via Ad-Hoc, as you can do with pictures."
- "I would love to see a virtual console on the psp....Genesis, pc engine, Neo Geo, etc."
- "I would also like some true streaming video support."
- "Get rid of the current text input (cell phone number pad) and make a new one with a qwerty style input ( like used in Socom FTB or Syphon Filter)."
This, good reader, sounds like a lot like your feedback
. Doesn't Sony get the point now... PSP fans want the same things! Unite, and maybe Sony will finally listen to their fan base!
