There is a very small firmware update for the PSP. The update is from v3.72 to v3.73. According to Eurogamer.net (quote): “The new firmware supposedly fixes a flaw with the UMD drive. Apparently in some cases data would fail to load properly, and Sony appears to have solved that problem.”

Baseball Stars 2 is the hard-hitting seguel to the arcade game Baseball Stars Professional; combining lively, cartoon-stryle presentation with a faithful simulation of major league baseball.

Is this your Christmas present? I came across this on Play-Asia.com. It’s a handheld Sega Mega Drive (or Genesis in the US) with 20 build in games. Sadly, non game are listed, but as the picture below shows, it looks to include Sonic & Knuckles and Ecco the Dolphine. I can’t figure out the two others. You can also connect the handheld to TV (uses NTSC).
You can get the Sega Mega Drive Portable Video Game Player from Play-Asia.com at US$39.90.
Here’s the text taken from Play-Asia.com:
The Mega Drive Portable is a video game player, which is pre-loaded with 20 classic games from SEGA Master System. There is no need to buy game cartridges. The Mega Drive Portable game player has an A/V connector and with the included cable the player can be connected to any TV. The built-in SEGA games provide action adventure while testing your intelligence and skill. Enjoy playing classic SEGA games anytime, anywhere with the new Mega Drive Portable video game player.
The Everyone`s Nintendo Channel is no out on Wii in Japan. This is the much talked about DS Demo Channel. These demos are out now: Brain Training 2, Flash Focus, Tamagochi 3, an E-book from Nintendo. An interview with Shigeru Miyamoto and some Wii trailers is also available. (Source: N-Europe.com)
So I do hope we see this Channel soon in Europe (and US).
