PSP 2.81 patch out

Written by Matti Vähäkainu (Google+) @ 08 Sep 2006 0:07 User comments (13)

PSP 2.81 patch out Sony released a new v2.81 patch for its handheld PlayStation Portable. The patch addresses security and memory card issues and does not require v2.80 firmware. The patch is available in Europe, Japan, and the US.
Only a month after previous major patch release, v2.81 software version includes support for Memory Stick PRO Duo memory cards that exceed 4GB in capacity, AAC files with the .3gp file extension and video and image content download from RSS. The update includes also minor Network and Settings tweaks. To see the patch details go to PSP System Update.

A demo of World Tour Soccer 06 has been made available for download.

EDIT: There are currently no Memory Stick PRO Duo memory cards larger than 4GB on the market, so the fix is merely a preventative measure and doesn't affect any users at this time.

I hope this isn't just another attempt to stop downgrading, pretty much no matter what they do in the end somehow there is more than likey to be a hack for it. I wonder how long it will be until this version is hacked?

as long as rules exist, someone will be there to rebel against them. every time they come out with an upgrade, someone will come out with a downgrade.

D please relax with the language. Now, I just heard that when sony releases Firmware 3.0, they say " IT CANNO BE DOWNGRADED " but it there is a possibility it would be able to have homebrew. Another thing, will it really have the PSONE emulator or are they just trying to trick us " AGAIN " ?
