PSP firmware update v3.30

It was reported eariler today that a firmware update for Sony’s PSP was available for download in Japan. Now it’s also up in US as I have updated my US PSP, I’m not sure if it up in Europe yet.

This is what version 3.30 gives you:

  • Support for displaying thumbnails for items has been added under [RSS Channel].
  • Support for PLAYSTATION Network titles has been expanded.
  • The size of videos that can be played under [Video] has been increased.
  • Support for displaying thumbnails for content saved in the “VIDEO” folder of a Memory Stick has been added under [Video].

According to the Google translated Japanese Playstation page, the PSP can now play video in 720×480, 352×480, 480×272. PSPs native resolution is 480×272. It also seems that the guidelines for the browser and the RSS are updates.

I will update if the European/US gives more info on this update.
