Via PSP Spot This is information I recieved from my EB Games Regional Manager source in: Sony was sending out Emails to its Commercial Retailers that all new PSPs to be sent out will have 'Downgradable Prevention' built right into them. All new PSPs to be shipped out as of next week Friday, May 18th, will be a higher firmware, 4.xx (specifics were not released), but they were promised to include new security features to prevent hacks and downgrades. Apparently this is one of their first steps to start focusing on the PSP again, instead of diverting all attention to the PS3. The new firmware will be available for download off Official, and most likely Unofficial, sites 2 days after the shipment is sent out. This also happens to be the shipment of PSPs to be sold for the price of $169.99CAD with a Game. As of now, you can still purchase the downgradable PSPs for anywhere between $190.00-$220.00 depending on the Commercial retailer. This news is obviously coming from a Canadian EB Games, based in Calgary, so this might not be effective for those in Europe, but possibly for the USA. These shipments are expected to be North American wide. So, check your PSP firmware and downgrade compatability before purchasing. So what do you think? Is it possible, could our hacking days be over?
