Two different Wal-Mart employees seem to claim that Sony is taking back their PSP inventory from the world's largest retailer. The DCEmu community seems to think that Sony's attempting to patch homebrew vulnerable PSPs with less exploitable firmware and hardware. But would that really be cost efficient?
I'll scratch this rumor as false, for now. More than anything else, these Wal-Mart employees were probably shocked by the surprising sales of the PSP over the holidays. Where did all their inventory go? Into the customer's hands.
