    This is so awesome. Need to go buy some Lumines games before Sony starts patching the next release batches.

    Meh.

    I applaud those who made this, but Sony will be patching this in the firmware starting right now.

    They (Sony) shouldn't be doing it and embrace homebrew (and all that comes with it); it would really give the PSP some life which it desperately needs (I have one..). However, it's not their attitude and I hate them for it.

    2 weeks I say.

    I purchased a second hand copy of Lumines for £5 today just in case I ever need it in the future. This is excellent news and a real accomplishment for the homebrew community.

    Even though I love homebrew, specifically emulation I understand completely why Sony can never embrace it for the Psp. Most issues Sony would have problems with would fall under copyright from emulation, how to restrict the access of old copyrighted games and most of all piracy. In reality, Sony would be opening up a can of worms and giving themselves serious headaches if they officially supported homebrew and emulation on the Psp.

    Having said this, I have heard about Sony supporting homebrew on some of their other platforms but I have no idea specifically which platforms or how exactly this works.

    By the way, CEX UK should still have copies of Lumines left for £5 in store or online with free delivery. No doubt people will be selling this £5 game for £60 on Ebay eventually.

    The local shops in my area have been cleaned out of Lumines. I acquired the last two copies at the gamestore in my neigborhood.

    (One for me and one for my brother who is getting a PSP for his birthday early next month.)

    I read this through engadget today. I thought that the amazon thing was a joke.

    Really excellent news, this simplifies the whole confusing downgrade situation that is about at the moment.

    How long thought before people are confused again as Sony release a new firmware! [​IMG]

    Don't worry I did the same thing back in the day. I bought one on ebay not too long ago. I believe our over priced copies of GTA:LCS will retain some value as the PSP homebrew scene is really starting to expand.

    This is a great day for homebrew/emulation fans everywhere. [​IMG]

    I learned about this too late so couple of questions...

    Do I need to have firmware at 3.50 or will 3.40 work? I am afraid to do the update now as Sony may have already fixed the 3.50 firmware download they have posted on their site.

    if this only works with 3.50 firmware, Does anyone have the PSP 3.50 firmware obtained prior to the past week to share with everyone? if so please share a link.

    edit: nevermind my post. I found the firmwares for download over at qj.net
