In its bid to add new features to the PSP, Sony has released the v2.71 firmware upgrade for the handheld, adding two new bullet points to the devices features list.
The bigger of the two changes included in the update is the ability to download game directly through the handheld’s internet browser into the system’s memory stick. The other change is a patch, fixing a function for the LocationFree Player so that video output is displayed properly when an external tuner is selected. Additionally, users in Japan now have access to Sony’s Portable TV download rental service in the country.
The update is available to users from all territories and can be installed by using the built-in update function, or by downloading the update from Sony’s website.
