    I don't see the usefulnesses in owning an outdated PSP firmware.

    Probably a tool for stores or factories/warehouses to update the PSP's they have in-stock when necessary. Stock never sells immediately, it's often stored for a while before it's put on the shelves, y'know.

    It's rather odd, I don't think I've seen one of those before. Quite a collectible, if it's legit.

    Owning a UMD you can't just buy is what makes this interesting.

    No one ever made knock-off UMDs, right?

    There are UMD writers out there, but they cost thousands of dollars last I checked and I don't think someone bought one just to make a firmware UMD, haha.

    I've never seen a blank UMD in my life, unless we're talking about developer hardware, in which case, it's still a great collectible. :P

    I know right? Actually, if this was some kind of emulator made by someone... I guess I would still buy it.

    Yeah, I'm still torn between this. I honestly don't need this. Only reason I would buy this is to... be able to say I own something like that, I guess? Oh well, I have a couple of days to decide.

    I don't see much point in getting this, but merely because it's pretty... useless. :P

    Foxi pretty much said what I was going to say.

    I love obscure gaming things.
    If I where you I should buy it or at least go over to Assemblergames and let them know it.
    They specialize in the obscure.

    Well, I bought it. ~$2 for something like this is nothing compared to the feeling of owning something so obscure.

    Thanks!

    I guess I could register to the forum and show them, but I'll wait till I have it. Maybe I can rip it too or something. Not that it matters, it's just a Firmware.

    Yep.
    Deffo do it ;]

    If you're willing to dump it then I'm willing to obtain a copy if you don't mind ;]​
    I love these kind of things.​
    Digital or physical.​
    I'd rather have the physical copy tho xd​
    But who am I to force it off you.​

    Why wouldn't I dump it?

    There's no reason in keeping it for myself. Plus, it's only a firmware, released several years ago. I'm not even hurting Sony's business if I dump this UMD.
    However, I don't think I want to part with it.

    If you're ever willing to sell it then I'm willing to buy it off you ;D

    Hmm true true.
    Lemme know if you posted it on the Assembler forums.

    Awesome stuff, go to Assembler. Discussion of stuff like this is common there. I am interested in this too, I can't wait until I have a job so I can start buying dev stuff.
