Firmware code hints at upcoming games download service


Firmware 3.50 and 3.51 have hints at an upcoming new feature for PSP. Hidden within np9660.prx, coders have found that this will allow Sony to load official PSP games from Memory Stick. Although there will undoubtedly be plans for hackers to take advantage of this code, it's great to see Sony finally step closer to the promised PSP Store that we've been waiting for years. Upcoming firmware will most likely support downloadable PSP games. Imagine, being able to download Wipeout Pulse from your PSP, instead of walking to a store and buying the game. It can happen ... but how soon?
