Sony released a new BIOS update for the PSP, which among other things adds a web browser. Since I have a wireless hub, I had to try that out. The browser is pretty nice, and pages look great compared to my Pocket PC, mostly because of the wider screen. Another great addition is the ability to set a custom wallpaper, replacing the wavy colors that usually appear on the main menu. The speed isn't that great, but on pages specifically designed for PDAs, it works well.
What this ultimately does for me is prohibit me from using any of the homebrew apps and emulators on my PSP, at least until the hackers crack this latest version. I figured I wasn't playing any of that stuff anyway, and would rather have a nice browser to use on the couch. Time will tell.
The new project is coming along, although I'm a little behind in my self-imposed schedule. I have a design I really like, and the ideas for the site and the future are sprouting. For instance, we've decided to support game mods as well, considering most sites of this nature ignore them, but they ad real value to existing games. I predict good things.Posted by mix at July 29, 2005 10:31 AM | TrackBack
