Got my PSP3000 today. It’s pretty neat, really light, the screen has indeed richer colors, and the firmware adds loooots of stuff. I see lots of people complaining about Sony not adding enough new stuff to their firmwares, but I can tell you that if you jump from a Phat with 3.71 to a Brite with 4.20, you’ll see a big difference. The radio feature is pretty neat (it’s probably been on the new firmwares for months, but I told you, I’m on 3.71…), I tested skype with the integrated Mic, and although it’s not as good as on the PC, it’s pretty cool to be able to make a phone call to my friends, 10 000kms from here, in my bed, for free.
I now have to wait until the 3000 is hacked so I can start working on network features for Wagic.
I’m not a hacker, so I can’t help much here, but I’ll send 50% of the donations received through Wagic until Day X to the team or individual who publicly releases an affordable (not an expensive modchip) and relatively secure (not too high percentage of bricks) way of running homebrews on the PSP 3000.
- This includes the donations I’ve received so far
- Day X is the day where the “method” to enable homebrews is publicly released.
- If several teams contribute to this, I’ll choose the one I’ll send the money to.
- The promise is over if I get enough donations to buy a second hand phat or slim psp (and I hope this does NOT happen)
This announcement is definitely not going to speed up the process, or even give motivation to the hackers working on that, but that’ll be my way to thank them whenever that happens.
Let’s cross fingers, now !
