Sony considering RSS text feeds for PSP Sony announced on Wednesday that it would consider adding support for RSS text feeds in a future firmware update for the PlayStation Portable (PSP) console if enough users request it. An RSS reader was added to the PSP in the latest firmware update, v2.60, but that is only for audio content such as podcasts. RSS text feeds are growing in popularity, allowing users to easily track updates to blogs, news items and auction sites for example.
"SCEI will consider adding compatibility for RSS text feeds should users request it," said Nanako Kato, a spokeswoman for Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. (SCEI) in Tokyo. The support for podcasts in the last firmware updates allows users to stream audio content to the PSP, as long as the audio is either MP3 or AAC. The system supports feeds compatible with RSS 2.0.

This is something I'd really like to see. Custom RSS feeds would be exxceelent. I could stay up to date whereever I want... Starbucks, Panera bread. I would also be able to play games, listen to music, and such. The PSP could have been a very powerful portable media device.
