Save $9800 on the Madden PSP bundle!

How much would you pay for a Blue PSP and a copy of Madden 09? You would pay $10,000, wouldn't you? But wait! Circuit City is offering a great deal! Pre-order now and you'll get the system, the game, a 1GB Memory Stick, a UMD movie and a download for beats -- all for only $200. You save $9,800!

Hilarious copy error, Circuit City. Please don't change it.

Firmware 3.90 fixes mysterious Store errors

Earlier, we reported that some users of the PLAYSTATION Store were unable to transfer content from their computers to their PSP systems. Looks like that's finally been fixed in firmware 3.90. Many users are reporting on the PlayStation forums that their once defunct systems can now play with the rest of 'em. Games like Beats and Syphon Filter: Combat Ops eagerly await those systems.

Supposedly, the fix only affects PSP-2000 systems, but it's clear that each firmware update Sony releases fixes a few more issues that users are experiencing. Hopefully, PSP Fanboy readers afflicted with this mysterious glitch have found their woes alleviated.

Users plagued with mysterious PSP Store errors

A number of people are having trouble using the PSP Store. A thread on the PlayStation Forums shows the growing frustrations of those that have met error 80048516. They rightfully purchased content from the Store, and simply cannot transfer the data over to their systems. Some users complain they've purchased over $30 worth of content that they're no longer able to access.

Calls to PlayStation support lines have left the users frustrated at the seeming lack of a solution. Constant days of "research" on their part seems to suggest only one solution: returning the system for a new one. We haven't encountered issues with the Store on our end, but we also don't manage more than one license at a time per system. A word of warning: don't deactive your PSP systems unless you really mean it! And don't try having multiple licenses (from different territories, for example) on your system.

We wish the best of luck to those affected, and hope to have an update regarding their situation in the near future.

Ask PSP Fanboy: Volume 7

Every Saturday, PSP Fanboy will answer your burning questions. If you have a question for the team, send an e-mail to andrew @ www.pspfanboy.com with the subject "Ask PSP Fanboy."

Q: Is downgrading to 1.5 and upgrading to the latest Sony update later harmful to the PSP?
A: Downgrading hasn't proven to be too "dangerous" on the PSP. However, you always run a chance of bricking your system whenever you overwrite its precious flash memory. If you're currently running an official PSP firmware at the moment, you can simply update by using "Network Update" or by accessing Sony's official website. However, if you're using OE firmware, you should downgrade first. There are reports that upgrading to the latest firmware from an OE edition will brick your system.
