Get with the times, Andrew! I totally had 3.03 on my PSP for the past few hours! You sux0rz!!!1
It's true. Firmware 3.03 is now available via Network Update. According to the update: "The number of PLAYSTATION Network titles that can be played under [Game] has increased."
O RLY, Sony??? I just checked my PS3, and I have yet to see any new games. I'll keep you posted, though.
[Update 1: Added description of update. Thanks, everyone that sent this in!]
3.02 update? Blame PaRappa!
3.01 update? Blame Jeanne d'Arc!

what does this update have?
12-20-2006 @ 1:36PM
this update only lets you put more ps1 games on your psp so if you have a ps3 then you should update

I installed the Update, it said there was undisclosed security and support for more games via PS3, which I think it utterly fracking stupid! Just let us d/l the games without having to buy an overrated PS3!!!

sticking with my 2.80 lol!
like my highly functional yet homebrewwy psp!
also i cant downgrade, but i sure as hell arent upgrading!

Wait a sec, 3.03! there wasn't even a 2.83. Weird! Anyways I'm not updating unless they put some new features. Sony not everybody owns a PS3!!!

i dont know what sony was thinking but it is really dumb that u need a ps3 to be able to play games on ur psp. i say we should riot to the sony company and take as many psp's as we can. lol. rich bastards!
12-21-2006 @ 12:00PM
i feel back stabbed by sony. needing ps3 to download games into psp. why!! us poor people cant afford a overly exagerating price for a console.

how can I downgdade my psp version 03.03?is it impossible?
12-30-2006 @ 11:15AM
How and where do you download the PSX games?Do you need a PS3?And how do you install the games in the psp
12-30-2006 @ 3:59PM
I think it's dumb as well. Hell I have 3.02 and it's useless all it was was a security update and now they think everyone on earth has a goddamn Ps3?! Those rat bastards need to pay dearly. I don't plan on getting a Ps3 until it's at least 100 dollars or less. And I'm not downgrading to be able to homebrew....because evan if I downgrade I still can't get anything to work right on it. But Sony must have been wasted when they were thinking of this nonesense.

I can't believe this crap. I just got my psp for xmas and I just updated to 3.03 without thinking or doing any research and now I feel like a big idiot. I hope there's a downgrade method that comes out soon cuz I am freaking out. I dunno bout you guys but I can't even play videos with MPEG4 codec which is supposed to work on this thing! I'm so frustrated!

all sony cares about is making more money, they want you to buy a ps3, so they promote this to push psp owners into buying the ps3.
and dont download the psp update. the "security" fix actually "fixes" all of the "malicious" coode people like Dark_Alex write...
1-08-2007 @ 7:13PM
OMG I just got the PSP and i was downloading Ridge Racer and it said you need 2.81 firmware so i downloaded the latest update because it probably worked later on i found out you cant download homebrew and you cant downgrade either! SONY IS A BUM m probably going to go to bestbuy and tell them it stoped working at times or something ill make something up and i'll get a new one and NOT download firmware over 2.71. I hope someone comes out with a downgrade for 3.03 firmware SONY are bums
1-09-2007 @ 3:48PM
DO NOT UPGRADE!!! there is a good 3rd party 3.02 OE by dark phoenix or someone like that. its a modded firmware versions that let you do so much more stuff than the regular firmware; like Dl psp games to your mem stick and play them, play a PS1 emulator, and even draw! all free too its so pointless to upgrade using sonys "awesome new updates" when you cant downgrade afterwards. like for instance after christmas when you dont realize whats happening only to beat yourself up later
1-09-2007 @ 9:11PM
god, i am so frustrated from downloading the stupid 3.03 update. i hope a new downgrader comes out soon, cuz im pullin my hair out. i want HOMEBREWWW!!!!
...so that i cud play mgs1, haha.
1-10-2007 @ 5:43PM
i think they shoulld atleast make a new update like v3.04 are something so some one can find a way to play homebrew like they did with v3.03oe. that would be cool. so some of us probally wouldnt have to wait so long for a downgrader. Damn V3.03
