PSP 6.00 Firmware Goes Live

psp-network-updateSony have released the PSP 6.00 firmware update and it is available now for download. The new firmware 6.00 can be downloaded the usual way by accessing the Network Update icon on the XMB.

New features on the PSP firmware update include the ability to group games in to folders based on their expire date. To be honest there isn’t too much excited so instead, you can just read over the list below.

* Games can now be grouped and displayed in folders based on their expire date under [Game].
* Under [Settings], [Network Update] has been changed to [System Update]. Under [System Update], you can now choose how to update the system software.
* The number of colors that can be selected under [Settings] > [Theme Settings] has been increased.
* Revisions to strengthen security have been added. (Internet Browser)

The time based game licensing might worry a few people. Video rentals can be set to expire, but games haven’t followed that pattern yet. Maybe a 24/48 hour game rental system might be being built. Maybe the 6.0 firmware is planning for this move?
