As predicted, PSP firmware 3.40 is now available via Network Update. The latest update to Sony's handheld includes the following features:

  • Support for PLAYSTATION Network titles has been expanded.
  • The method of managing certificates under [Game] has been changed.
Certainly not one of the more exciting updates in recent memory. Coincidentally, the PLAYSTATION 3 has also been updated today. The PS3 can now supposedly play downloaded PS1 titles, and by using the two systems in tandem, one can play a game on PS3, save, and then continue playing that title on the go. Unfortunately, as of this writing, we've been unable to make this work.

To download the latest update, run Network Update on your PSP.

[Update: The update is now available to download via a computer. Visit the official US PlayStation site.]
