    Right, and 4.05 was so worth the whole ones number jump too.

    Can't wait to see what effective features this is going to have.

    PSN without a PC? Better than 90% of PSP updates.

    Hopefully D-A updates the CFW too! [​IMG] But the US is probably going to have to wait a while, maybe not though.

    It's like they jumped from 2.00 to 5.00 though, anything in-between was shit(most of it)
    Google XMB sucks [​IMG]

    U.S. will have to wait a while since the new psps come with 4.20 firmware.

    4.20? Sony likes to make updates with nothing in them that is "exclusive to this game or system" for some reason

    And about those new Brites, I think it's hopefully possible to get the screen off of some site like DX and maybe a software modification if needed, I like my red psp! [​IMG]

    It would be awesome if with D-A firmware you could just download games off of the store without paying. [​IMG] Highly unlikely.

    You'll never know we'll just have to sit back and wait to see what happens.

    4.05 was released a while ago, so they arnt just releasing it right after d:


    actually those updates usually include "enhanced security" and some other features probably like new music visualizers and such

    not that big of an update but they need to compete with Nintendo's update on the DSi
