The recent release of Firmware 1.80 for the PlayStation bought with it remote access to the PS3 from anywhere around the world via the PSP, so with this in mind, a new PSP Firmware release could be right around the corner. Reports suggest that Sony is prepping Firmware 3.50 for the PSP, that will utilize the PS3 to PSP connectivity providing support for the PS3’s new internet-enabled Remote Play feature. The update could be available for download within the next few days.
No word yet on what other features will be available in the firmware update, but we’ll keep you posted on any developments.
UPDATE (29/05/07 02:14 PM):
We have just heard the Firmware 3.50 will include access to the PlayStation Network, but will only be accessible to those who own a PlayStation 3. Only parts of the PlayStation Network will be included in the update, but it’s nice to see that Sony are finally starting to roll out network access. Hopefully, full integration isn’t too far off.
