UPDATE: Firmware 2.0 has been confirmed. It will be releasing on July, 27th.






Sony also confirmed and showcased the official Sony PSP Internet Browser Function. This official web browser supports HTML v4.01, however it does not have support for Flash.




It's very likely that this browser will come with a brand new major firmware update (like 2.0). Rumor has it the new firmware version will be released July, 27th. So let's choose: all the sweet homebrews / games / emulators / tools, or a web browser? Maybe it's time to buy another PSP... how about that sexy white one?




Sony also announced a direct video supply service called "Portable TV" which is starting on July 27th. Users can download TV content in H.264 format, and play it on the PSP! It is said that H.264 video playback will be supported after this v2.0 update. It is unknown if this service is free or not, or how it would be billed.
