The PSP has been updated to v2.7 with a new firmware upgrade available through Sony’s website.
According to the company’s announcement, the upgrade adds Flash support to the PSP’s web browser, letting those who browse the internet view animations, as well as play web games through the portable. The upgrade also allows users to stream podcasts to the PSP and save them to the Memory Stick. The 2.7 upgrade also adds support for more popular music formats, enhancing the media playback capabilities of the device. And last, but not least, the upgrade prepares the PSP to act as a receiver for LocationFree, a Sony innovation that allows users to watch TV, play back recorded programmes and set up future recordings through mobile devices.
As an incentive to upgrade, Sony has made available a Loco Roco demo that only runs on 2.7 PSPs.
