PlayStation Portable system software

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The PlayStation Portable has firmware that can get an update.[1] When one updates the firmware, the battery must be charged (to 3 bars, i.e. 60%), and the PSP should not be switched off.[2] This may result in a brick and/or a constant startup BSOD or another screen "of death".[3] As of August 10, 2011, the latest firmware is 6.60.
